Clean With Me Monday Challenge - Clear Out a Cupboard

*Clean out and reorganize one cupboard or cabinet in your home.

*Approximate time ~ 30 minutes +

*Tips:  Working one shelf at a time, remove everything, sorting through items and donating or tossing what you no longer need.  Wipe off shelves and then return items to the cupboard/cabinet, reorganizing as necessary.

Personal Notes:  There was a cabinet in my jewelry/craft/makeup/music room (talk about a multipurpose room!) that had piles of music as well as miscellaneous jewelry supplies, scrapbooks, an old laptop....basically a "junk" cabinet.  When I had something I needed to put away but didn't have room for it elsewhere, I'd put it in this cabinet and promise myself I'd deal with it later (I'm sure NONE of you ever do that! :-).  Needless to say, I wasn't excited to sort through everything in this cabinet but I finally found the courage to take on the task.  Because of all of the odds and ends and music I had to sort through, this project took me about 1.5 hours but I feel so good now that it's done!  It's neat and organized and now, I will think twice before tossing something in there to "deal with later" :-)

Happy Cleaning!
