Organizing Challenge- Day 3 and 4

I know, I know, I've been really bad at posting these. But I HAVE been doing it. I promise!

Here's some proof.

Day 3 was cleaning and organizing the tupperware cabinet.  I don't have one.  I have a small section of a cabinet for it, but it is already organized.  So I chose a different cabinet.  

{Don't worry, it's totally allowed!}

I cleaned out my- pots and pans and other random cooking stuff- cabinet.

See.  It needed it.  
A. Lot.

This is the left side

And the right side.

I loathe getting into these cabinets because it's so messy and things are hard to get to.  
Well, not anymore thank goodness!

I emptied everything out and wiped them down.

I put a couple thing we don't use (like our old dish rack from when we didn't have a dishwasher) in a donation box and threw some things (papers) away. 

Then I used some handy dadny organizing things I got from Wal-Mart.  
 {Sooo worth it}

And voila!

The things I rarely use are in the back.  The pan and pots are separated and easy to grab!  I LOVE my pan stacker thing.  So nice.  And the lids each have their own slot in the other organizing thingy.  Plus I now have extra room in there if I need it now.

Here a lovely Before and After of the left side.

...and the right side.

Ahhh.  Bliss.

Next up is the Day 4 Challenge of the linen closet.

I actually did this one before the cabinets and I didn't take many pictures.  
And it's not super different.
And it basically looks the same.
I know.

But I DID organize it!
I DID get rid of some stuff to donate!
I DID clean it out!

So there.

Here's the before and after.

I never knew how much I liked organizing.  For real.
It's so satisfying.  Especially finding all the stuff you can get rid of.  
It's totally cleansing.

You should try it too!
