3 in 30 July Goals and Update #1

My goals for July for the 3 in 30 challenge are:

1. Go through kitchen cupboards and put anything that's in boxes in glass jars. I did this process once back in March 2011. I've been saving jars from products that I'm done with and have quite a few to work with.

In the process, this will clean out the mudroom closet where I've been storing the jars, and clean out any food in the cupboards that I don't plan to use. This will free cupboard space in two places.

2. Clean the freezer. I'm going to remove each thing from the freezer (a multi-shelved one that is separate from the refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen), and determine if it is something to keep or toss. The freezer will be defrosted and cleaned; and then items put back by type (e.g., vegetables on one shelf, fruit on another shelf).

3. Clean the girls' closet. One half of the closet has become very disorganized, and become the spot to place things that need to put away in another location (e.g., shelf, drawer).

As a side note, I finished one of my June goals (the only one I didn't complete) on June 29th and 30th:

Clean the floor in my office. Just looking at what needed to be put away, recycled, or donated was so overwhelming that I kept putting it off. I didn't want to go into July with this project still lingering, so I spent the majority of the day cleaning everything off the floor. I am so happy that this is finally done.

It seems like quite a few of us have some sorting, rearranging, whatever to do this month. Misery loves company? Or is it that great minds think alike? Whichever it is, you've got great goals, and I'm sure you can accomplish them.
