Day 5 - Under the Kitchen Sink

I was really hoping this challenge would be coming up soon.  My sink cabinet was a MESS.  There was a trail of dead ants under there from... who knows when.  (We have a BAD ant problem in this house.)  The host of this challenge recommends putting down shelf liner and hanging door organizers, but I don't have any... and this is a rental. I'm not putting any extra money into this crap hole.  Anyway, here's the "before"...


I took everything out, scrubbed down the bottom & sides of the cabinet.  Then I got rid of a couple bottles of cleaner that I never use, organized all of the bottles of hand soap (I'm addicted to yummy soaps!), and lined up all the cleaners so I can find them more easily.  I also removed the boxes of baggies, wax paper, and other stuff that we'd use near food... I don't know why I thought it would be a good idea to store that stuff near the poisons anyway.  *smacks forehead*  After a good 30 minutes, there's still a lot of stuff down there, but it's MUCH neater.  Here's the "after" shot...
