I tend to procrastinate doing my 15 minutes of daily cleaning, and the other night was no exception.  It was late, DangerBear had gone to bed early, and I was tempted to skip the cleaning and go to bed.

Then I realized that decluttering or organizing would definitely count!  I set my timer and promptly starting organizing my pantry cabinet.  Here's what it looked like before:

Eek!  Open packages of food, stuff shoved in everywhere...  I had no idea what was in there.  Now, here's what it looked like after my timer started beeping:

Oh, it makes me so happy!  Every time I pass by, I feel compelled to open the cabinet door and gaze upon the organized neatness.  Ahhh.

Isn't it nifty what you can accomplish in fifteen minutes?  Try it!  Set a timer and do something, anything!  Vacuum a room, sweep the floor, declutter a drawer...  I guarantee you'll be glad you did.  =)

    I envy you. Actually I envied you with the before shots. My cabinets are about 10xs worse than that. Wah.

    OK tomorrow, I'm going to try again to clean them up. You've inspired me.

    LOL I swear it looked worse in real life! I'd love to see your before and after pics; it's so motivating to see those kinds of transformations. =)

    I thought I was the only one who opens freshly organized drawers, closets and cupboards for the sheer joy of seeing how nice they look. Glad I'm not as much of a nut as I thought I was. I need to try your tip. I love organizing and having things organized is very important to my sanity. I get so caught up in it that I find I've lost an hour or half a day in a closet or bureau. (yes this is an inherited sickness -smile- my sister is the same way) the timer would help limit my time while getting my little daily fix!

    Oh, yes, there's nothing like a newly-organized closet or cabinet, is there? Next up: my spice cabinet and my baking drawer. They're both a wreck.
