There is something to be said for being organized. January seems like a good month to clean out, throw out and reorganize. A reader asked me where my spices were when they read the NEAT Method blog post about my kitchen pantry. That led me to organizing my spice cabinet on my own. After posting on Facebook that I needed my windows cleaned, I found Green Army. Check out all the services they offer!
We are all still laughing about the 5 bottles of A-1 steak sauce over here. Be sure to read this blog post so that you are in on the story. That started my January “organizing my life” bug and I’m well on my way to throwing out stuff that has accumulated over here for many years. For example, we are pretty clean and tidy people, yet we still have a hula hoop, roller blades and rip sticks in the garage from when the kids were little. WHY? I believe it’s because you think to yourself “I spent money on that and they may want to use it again”. REALLY? Nope. They would have taken it with them if they wanted it. Our kids are all adults and we are empty nesters. They are not going to go roller blading on our block.
Green Army is a fantastic company that is well-known for pest control and mosquito solutions. But what you might not know is that they offer many other home services such as garage clean out, window cleaning, debris removal, insulation services and outdoor grill steam cleaning. They contacted me about trying the window cleaning and garage clean out and I love their work. They are super fast and get the job done! My windows were filthy and they quickly cleaned them including removing all my screens and re-attaching them. Our garage was fairly organized but Green Army came in and cleaned it out by making three piles: 1) stuff that needs to be organized and go back in 2) stuff that needs to be donated and 3) stuff that is trash and needs to be hauled off. And they haul off all the trash for you and will donate any items to a local charity (from pile number 2). You do absolutely nothing but review the piles (so they know what to throw out vs. donate). BRILLIANT!
That lead me to cleaning out my own spice cabinet. I had often heard of people alphabetizing their spices but I really thought that sounded a little over the top. However, once NEAT Method organized my pantry and color coded it, it totally makes sense to have some sort of system. I purchased this Expand-A-Shelf for the spices and these divided clear turntables to organize all our oil and vinegar. You can also use this crazy susan turntables as well. You may not see a huge difference but from eye level I can now see everything clearly without moving things around.I’m linking you to all the organization items I have been using.
I highly recommend Green Army and you can contact them here or give them a call at 888.537.4555. You will want all of their services. And then be sure to let me know what you did.
GIVEAWAY: I’m giving away one $500 gift certificate to Green Army for you to use on any of their services! Today all you have to do is leave a comment on the blog post answering this question. Which room in your house is in desperate need of organizing? Winner will be announced next week on the blog. Good Luck!
