Tackle it Tuesday #1

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

This is my first edition of Tackle it Tuesday. Since I stay at home on Mondays, I usually get my tackling done then instead of Tuesdays, but I thought I would participate in it anyway. It is close enough, right? So, here is what I tackled this week.

We keep a file of manuals for electronics, appliances, mowers, etc that we have. I have been trying for weeks to get my file cleaned out. We have gotten new cell phones, a new washer, and a new DVD player to name a few since we originally started this folder. It has grown substantially. It was definitely time to clean it out.

Here is what it looked like before. I had to use both hands to lift it out of the file cabinet.

Here is what it looks like now. A little better, right?

Head over to 5 Minutes for Moms for more tackling ideas. I like to see what other people are working on. It helps me realize what needs to be done at my house.

That is a great idea to have a file for all the manuals, I end up sticking ours in different drawers and then I can't find them.

We have something very similar. I am always amazed at how big it is!

Looks great!
I'm impressed that you all just have one file of manuals. I have an entire file cabinet DRAWER full. Hmmmmmm, that just might be my next tackle. Thanks for the idea!
