I moved into a new home, but have been unable to organize any place, including the kitchen, because of some health problems. However, I am improving and getting strength. I did this before I even know about this team (which I have now joined), but it was a start. I have a kitchen with lots of cupboards, but each cupboard is limited in space (9" high and 9" across) so it limited to size of boxes, bottles and dishes and pans I can put anywhere.

Still I started this morning. Placed my best everyday dishes above the counter, and all my big bowls and ceramic dishes and plates below the counter. I have seven more areas of the kitchen to tackle, and THAT'S NOT COUNTING THE FRIDGE AND PANTR!

it's good exercise, though. And I feel so much better.

I have kept the kitchen counter clean for a month now. Progress is slow but I am getting it done.

Thursday of this week, my husband is teaming up with me to clean the carpets and do a little overhaul.

Life is happening now, not 10 pounds from now.

230 lbs lost without surgery, crazy diets, diet products, or extreme exercise- so have hope!

I know what you mean, Janice! DH drops the mail on the end of the counter every day so that I can "look at it" whether it's junk mail or not. It piles up quickly, but I can't toss it until I've gone through it. The key is to do it right away. This end of the counter is such a magnet for things!

I tend to walk into the house and dump things on the kitchen counter. Time to clean it of the mess again. The dining room table is getting better, but not total clean.

We're moving into our former rental and have been cleaning and cleaning. Now it's time to start actually storing things and deciding which things to put into which drawers and cupboards. I think you have to "live" with it for a while to know where things should go. At least, I do.

It can be overwhelming when there is just SO much stuff! I have boxes of books and pictures and memorabilia that I need to go through and at least thin out. I hate to just toss things but our area is not great for having a yard sale, so that's not a realistic avenue.

On the upside, my laundry is caught up, dishes are done and I have disposed of much of the clutter on the kitchen counters. I need to just pick a room and start there--or maybe just a closet?

Just general cleaning today. I need my husband to help me when he is off on WED and THUR to help rid me of clutter. I recently had arm surgery. I think we are going to start with making a Goodwill box or several

Today I am clearing out several boxes stored in the guest room. I have a guest arriving later this month, so it's a great place to start with decluttering and organizing.

I will also be taking care of a few boxes of things that have been sitting in the carport.

I am so happy that we are doing this special project here. For me, an orderly and uncluttered environment is conducive to healthy eating and being active.

I've been organizing- decluttering my kitchen 18 months now. It is so nice to have it all "streamlined"! It wasn't something I could do in a week. I think we give up on things that take a while and we shouldn't! emoticon

I had a garage sale last week and then sent just about all the stuff that didn't sell to the Diabetes Association! There are a few things lingering in the garage but not too much. My next big organization tackle is our basement - everything has a place, it's just about putting it there!!

It's not about being better than someone else, it's about being better than you used to be.

LOL! I think this is a great challenge, but a week ago school got out and so my vacation began and what did I work on all week! My kitchen and pantry! I am done, so I guess I will move on to another room!

I'm in !!! I got a good start last summer but I have a long way to go. Also, we are talking about putting in all new flooring. This will require a de-cluttering to make that an easier project.

Today, I will start with the coffee table and the things that are under it.
