The recent trip I took to our trailer gave me the time to really declutter! We haven’t spent a lot of time at the trailer in years and when we did get a chance to go up, it was only a few days at a time. So things like going through the cabinets and purging was the last thing I really wanted to do in those few says. But, getting the chance to be there for 3 weeks, I actually enjoyed taking my time and getting my home away from home more organized.
Over the years, things just kind of got shoved here and there. It was time to tackle it!
Holy cow! The plates and bowls cabinet!
And large bowl area.
I can’t believe I am showing y’all this mess!
Everything came out of those 3 cabinets!
I completely scrubbed down the insides of all the cabinets.
Let the purging begin! A couple of bags go straight to the trash.
Lots of things to be taken to donation.
Phew! All cleaned out, organized and easier to deal with.
I have to admit, while I was alone tackling this job, I felt my mind purging stuff as well. sounds weird huh? But this task made me feel a sense of accomplishment which in turn made me feel more positive.
And what was a total surprise was when I got home, this feeling carried over into my house! I decided to tackle my kitchen cabinets at home. Woohoo!
This baking cabinet was so crammed full, I didn’t even bother trying to get things out from the back.
I was so shocked at how many muffin pans I had! Why so many? I forgot they were in there! I couldn’t see them so, I would pick up a new one! Talk about waste and non-thrifty!!
Just like the trailer, everything came out and the cabinet got a complete scrubbing!
Wow! Would you look at that! I can actually see everything in this cabinet now! What a great concept! LOL
I ended up throwing away several pans and donating a lot.
The simple act of purging these cabinets both at home and at the trailer has been very therapeutic for me. It just feels like I have lightened up and can breathe easier. Do you ever get that kind of feeling from accomplishing a project like this?
When was the last time you went through and purged your kitchen cabinets?
Thank you for stopping by and have a happy day!
