Anti Procrastination Challenge!

Mrs. Wilt over at The Sparrows Nest is hosting an anti-procrastination challenge this week. I am joining a bit late, but a prize is up for grabs and I'll settle for any motivation to get some projects done!

My first project today was making a list of things I've been putting off but need to be done. I decided to begin by cleaning my refrigerator, a task I haven't done in a LONG time.

Here's my before. You can't see how dirty the shelves and walls of the fridge are.

I emptied the fridge of everything and wiped the entire inside down. I usually use glass cleaner and paper towels on the shelves, but we are out of paper towels. I didn't let this deter me. I used my scrubby sponge and water and just repeated to myself the Flylady mantra "Housework done incorrectly still blesses your family." Even though my shelves aren't streak free, they look SO much better!

I then sorted the contents of the fridge (which were on the counter) and check expiration dates. Many things ended up in the trash. I put the rest back and my fridge looks so much better!

I had wanted to get to the freezer and top of the fridge today and I still might, but for now, I'm proud of my accomplishment!

WOW! Your fridge looks great. I tend to use the "this fridge is too small" excuse to not clean it out. As if that makes ANY sense! Thanks for the inspiration. I am really enjoying these challenges.

It looks great! I do believe I need to do the same thing. Once I am back on my feet, that is. After six weeks of mom not being in charge of the kitchen I am sure my refridgerator will really need it!
