Project "Better" and a CHALLENGE!

Well, September 1st is here! Time for a fresh start on some habits! I have decided to call my little adventure "Project Better" because when I was thinking about all that I need to do I kept coming up to the word "better." Not perfect...just better.

I decided that I had 2 types of things that needed to be "better"....small projects and big projects. So I am going to have a monthly goal and weekly goals.

My goal for September is to change how we eat. I want to get back on track with my diet. I want to help Manga Dork feel better about herself.

My weekly goals will start on Mondays and end on Friday. The first weekly goal I am going to set is this...

This unfortunately is my pantry. I took this when I was REALLY in need of a trip to the grocery store.


This is the outside of my refrigerator and the space between it and the pantry. I cannot keep this space from being cluttered! It drives me nuts and most of that stuff is mine!

This is the inside of my fridge. Yikes! How embarrassing!

My first weekly goal is to clean up these 3 spaces. This should also help with my monthly goal of getting our food under control!

Here's my challenge to you... This week, look at your pantry and refrigerator and make it BETTER! You may need to do a complete overhaul on it or you just might need to make a minor adjustment! Then blog about the before and after (by Thursday night) and let me know you did! I will link to your post when I post my results that Friday morning. We can all stand to be a little "better."

You are so on a roll. I feel it. I love it and I am proud of you. I think it is great that you are doing an overhaul on those things that may be in the way of a life style change. Good job. I will work on this and let you know.

Wow - it is so very rare when I can say .. I did it!!!! I had some friends come around last week and help me with the pantry, and I cleaned out the fridge (this is in preparation for family taking over my household and I want things more organized) - can I say this has made a HUGE difference in our daily lives!!! Just getting a bunch of junk out to see what you really have is so helpful!

I also took about 3/4 of my baking stuff and pots and pans down to our storage room so that the things we really use are a lot more accesible.

Can I say that i think both your pantry and your frids look fantastic!! Your fridge "before" shot looks better than my "after" ... but hey!! I hate cleaning out the fridge.

This is great. What a positive goal you have set. BETTER! I really need to get my pantry under control. So I am off to take some very embarrassing before photos. M

PS
I also have a space between the pantry and refrigerator that seems to get cluttered.

It is really cool of you to change things up for MD! I wish my mom would have done that for me when I was that age, before I got fat! I admire you for wanting to make things better! I have missed you too, I hope the PMS has passed!! I would love to do your challenge, but I have no say so around this house and my parents have become very meticulous about things here and don't like changes! I can't wait to see what you do!! Oh, and if you can't tell, I am back!

Awesome idea. I have ton's of projects that need to be done. I may borrow this idea and tweak it to fit me a little.

Good luck!
