Tackle it Tuesday


I love Tackle it Tuesday because it forces me tho get stuff done. For this weeks Tackle I again had help from my super handy husband, thanks babe for my new improved utility room! Our Utility room is rather larger for having such a small house, I think it is one of the best features of our house because it can serve multiple purposes, not just laundry (I know this makes me sound like a big dork). We originally had only one shelf and a hanging rack in the utility room. We have lived in our house for 4 years and why we waited so long to add more shelves, I don't Know. With all the coupon shopping I do I have accumulated a rather large stock pile and it is going daily :) With lack of storage space we are forced to become more organized (another great impact being frugal has made on our lives).
Here is what the utility room storage looked like before....

First thing we had to do was clear off all crap uhh I mean stuff off the shelf, With Poopoos help of coarse.......

Then My incredibly Hot uhh I mean Handy Husband got busy building me some shelves........
Finally after painting it was time to load up my new shelves with all my great bargains......

Much Better!!!!!

Hey April, I just wanted to say Hello to you. I found your blog through Tena and you inspire me to save money, and that IS possible and to organize my life, home, and clutter.

Great tackle!! We did something similiar to this last year and it makes shopping so much easier. Now, we don't buy anything unless it is on sale. I have yet to worry about running out of anything:-)

So random question: Are you real life friends with Janie at Memories from Home or is that the other girl from Mommy Minded blog... hum Anyway, I noticed Janie hasn't blogged in like 3 weeks! (I sound like such a blog lurker...haha) Just thought you might know why she hasn't blogged. I hope she is okay, she left for vacation and hasn't wrote since....weird. If you want, you can email me back at comicalcouponcents@yahoo.com
Thanks!
