Tackle It Tuesday

My first "Tackle" project: The Refrigerator!

Tackle It Tuesday Meme


I've been wanting to participate in this for awhile, but since I figured screenshots of QuickBooks files aren't all that exciting... I've been waiting.

So, Saturday, I could not take my nasty refrigerator for one more day. As I was cleaning the frig, and I thought "This would be a great Tackle!" I was halfway through but here it is halfway complete. The picture just does not show how yucky it was (except maybe the black beans in the bottom courtesy of Punkin.) I got rid of LOTS of half-used jars.

It's all empty and clean! I can actually see through the clear shelves!
Everything is back where it goes!
I can't tell you what joy it is for one small portion of my house to be clean, organized and under control!

For more "Tackles", go here.

don't you feel good when you get that done.

my frig. is a place that i become blinded to until all of a sudden it's like the blinders come off and i'm in horror of what it has become.

i may just go do that now:-)

I know what you mean about having one place under control, clean, and organized. That's why I love these tackles! The frig looks great!

Awesome work!!! I did my refrigerator last week for the Tackle It Tuesday, and I still am enjoying it every time I open the fridge! :)

I hate cleaning out my fridge! Yours looks so nice and organized now! Mine doesn't look that organized when I'm done. Awesome tackle!

How funny. I just did that this morning. Now I have to clean the freezer section.

good job! one of those distasteful jobs that I avoid.... I'm like Heidi.... all of a sudden one day I look at it and think yuck! when did it get SO dirty?! That usually happens when someone is over and they open the fridge!!

It was your first Tackle-it, too? Wow. And you picked a fantastic one. I cleaned our fridge not long ago - and just looked in recently and noticed that the clean is wearing off. Kool aid makes quite an interesting adhesive.

Great tackle!!

Looks great! I had my family clean my fridge last year as my Mother's Day present ... I think it's time for a repeat!

I stopped by to let you know that Julie has posted again on Emma's blog (Polka Dot). She could use the encouragement if you could stop by.

I love getting my fridge cleaned! Ok, the process is no fun, but the end result is wonderful!

Thanks for visiting my blog. :-)
