"Ducky" Projects

As promised, here are some "before" pictures of the ducky projects I'm working on...

The first is the dining room table. I'm still working through our attic closet, gathering clothes to give away. Almost everything on this table is going to another family or to Goodwill! I started stacking it on the table because that's where I've been folding it, and I wasn't sure where else to put it until I was finished.

From now on, though, laundry will be folded on our made-up bed. That way I will only need to make one trip upstairs on the days that I do laundry, rather than continuously cleaning off the table. (Or spreading out a tablecloth on the floor for a picnic!)

That, my friends, is the definition of an avalanche waiting to happen! We had several days of company last week, and it seems that nothing was put back in its place. (And Mom, if you're reading this, those are corn dogs in my freezer, but I can guarantee that they're better for us than doughnuts! Haha...)

As well as organizing, I need to give the fridge a good cleaning. I also need to make a list of what we have so that I can plan some meals to use it up!

I should be back tomorrow with some after pictures, as well as some great links regarding meal planning that I've found this week.
