Another Tackle

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

It's time for another Tackle It Tuesday. I sure do love Tackle It Tuesday. It forces me to look around and find something that really needs to be done and then to do it.

So, for my tackle this week I decided to work on our filing cabinet. Usually once the new year starts I take out all of the old files and store what we need to keep in nicely organized Rubbermaid containers and throw away the stuff we don't need.

Since I just realized that it is already March I decided it was time to tackle the filing cabinet.

On the left is the inside of my filing cabinet before. It was packed so full that I couldn't have put one more piece of paper in there, let alone my hand to try to get papers in and out.
On the right is the top of the filing cabinet. And it just looks messy and annoying.

And here we have the after pictures.
As you can see there is now some space in the filing cabinet to add more papers. And, the files on top have room to be stuffed full of useless things I don't feel like taking care of for another year.

So, what did you tackle this week? Stop on over at 5 Minutes for Mom to join in the fun or to check out the other participants.

Great job! I worked a little last week on our filing cabinet, but it still needs work. They get out of control so easy & fast!

Happy TT!

Good job on the filing. I know just how difficult it can be to get to filing.

At least, yours was already filed, just needed cleaning out.

Your filing looks great. Maybe you could come to my house and clean up my files. Ha

I tried tackling my house last week but it was a waste since the kids messed it all up in oh 20 minutes!
I need to get some filing cabinets.

Wow, i'm impressed! A little surprised you let it get that messy! But a great job, now just refrain from putting things back in there!

Wow, I am very inspired by your tackle it Tuesday, but not so inspired I think I could do it myself!

Looks great and I'm sure it feels even better to have it done.
