Homemakers Challenge Update #1

Homemakers Challenge

 *Whew!* I’m a little late getting this up, (supposed to be doing this on Thursdays)…and I’m a lot late getting started on the Homemakers Challenge since the day it started was the day my vacation started.

And then I had to recover from my vacation.

So yesterday I got my rear in gear and got started!

I already had Day One covered, (the mission statement) from the May challenge.

Day Two’s project is cleaning your fridge:

Since I hadn’t cleaned it out for weeks and I’d just done my major shopping the day before, it was lookin’ pretty bad:


The depressing part is that my after picture doesn’t look  that much different, except for the addition of a very cute little person.


But I promise, it is MUCH cleaner and I have a big bowl going out to the chickens of grizzly, long-gone leftovers and expired stuff.

Mostly it is just full of stuff from my recent shopping trip. I’ve got some freezer meals to make and a lot of fresh, seasonal veggies and such in there that take up a lot of room.

Now I have THIS to tackle this afternoon, (it already looks better than this pic, but still needs a lot of help!)

Makes you feel better about your kitchen, huh?

Oh my word.

I can’t even believe I’m posting this, but it sure motivates me to get it whipped into shape so I can show you an after picture soon.

Wow, you’re so brave to post those pictures! I admire you already ;)
I’m going to try to follow along and do this with you.
My living room is the one desperately needing attention tonight.
Great job on your fridge by the way!

I am so glad not only my kitchen looks that way. I think I may have to check out and join in on this challenge :)

NO need to be embarrassed about your kitchen!! At any given time, there is at least one area in my home which is in similar chaos. Right now, it’s the great room. There are toys EVERYWHERE! My husband has about four different baby proofing projects laid out to do. Cats are lounging and it’s jsut flat out icky!

Congrats on your fridge. Mine needs a good cleaning the very worst way!

You have totally motivated me to do this with my house. I don’t have a Kindle but I do have the Kindle app for my iphone. Does anyone know if it would work on that the same?

Your kitchen counters remind me of mine! Too much stuff and not enough space. Good luck in the Homemaker’s Challenge. I might just join you…I need to!
