We have been extraordinarily busy, with the beginning of (home)school and the change of seasons. Our entire schedule has been turned upside down and we are racing to catch up.
One of the things I do every fall is begin our deep cleaning. I know, I know, most people do their deep cleaning in the springtime, however, I always get the cleaning bug in the fall when I know that we will be cooped up in a tight space for the long days of winter. I want everything to be as organized and spic n span as possible.
I started our deep cleaning with my kitchen shelves. Open shelves have their place, but I must admit, they gather dust and grime like nobodies business! With canning season getting into high gear, I needed to go through our shelves, organize and rearrange them to make room for a new season of food. To say that my shelves were dirty was...well, rather an understatement.
|You can see - the shelves need a little cleaning!|
|Organized and labeled|
|Ready for winter|
