Tackle It Tuesday #101

Tackle It Tuesday Meme

Hello all my lovely tackling ladies. Let me just say I am so proud of you all for stickin’ with this Meme. And thank you for all the wonderful encouragement, not only to me, but to the other ladies as well… keep up the good work.

This week for me was a tough one. I cleaned out our car. It was difficult because I could only clean it when it was home since my hubby takes it to work everyday. But it’s clean now and he is blessed not to be riding in something with stale cheerios all over it :)

If you want another peek behind the scenes or if you want to see who won the Mr. Clean Magic Erasers stop on by the Scrapping Servant.

What are you tackling? Link up and let us know!

Join Us For Tackle It Tuesday

We’re making housework blog-able!

Each week on Tuesday, we are posting before and after pictures of a project or trouble area that we tackled this week.

Find out more about Tackle It Tuesday here.

The project can be little or big – whatever you want. Basically, Tackle It Tuesday is about giving ourselves incentive, deadlines and satisfaction in getting our household tasks done. (It doesn’t even have to be housework… just whatever is on your To Do list.)

If you tackled a project this week, just add a comment and add your link below.

Happy TT!

18 Susan April 29, 2008 at 12:27 pm

Thanks so much for tackling your tackle here at 5m4m.

WOW!! You’re right, that car needed cleaning! It’s amazing how much we live in our vehicles. :-D


20 Jenean April 29, 2008 at 1:20 pm

Hey! That looks like my car last week! I always wondered if any other moms vans got as dirty as mine on the inside LOL I should have took pictures from that tackle.


21 Deb - Mom of 3 Girls April 29, 2008 at 1:21 pm

Oh yes, we need to clean our van out. Badly. :)

24 Stephanie April 29, 2008 at 5:24 pm

The “before” photos look like my car! I seriously have to tackle that project!


25 Connie April 29, 2008 at 5:26 pm

Your car looks GREAT!!! I might have to use that idea for my next Tackle it Tuesday – ours looks much, much, worse than yours did. I went outside – the weather here has been so nice and I truly did not want to stay indoors another minute.


26 Nicki April 29, 2008 at 6:28 pm

This is my first Tackle It Tuesday, and I think this is going to help me a lot! I have severe ADHD, and this is just the thing to give me the motivation and support to tackle a few much-needed projects!


27 Organizing Mommy April 29, 2008 at 7:33 pm

Good job on the car. We call our car “the commissary”, since almost anything can be found there!


28 Nellie April 29, 2008 at 8:03 pm

Cleaning the car is always a job I had rather not do!! Good job.


29 Amber (Bringing Good Home) April 29, 2008 at 9:59 pm

Great job on the car – looks much better, more comfortable and inviting. I love driving in my car right after I’ve cleaned it. ;)


30 Tina (Mummified Times Five) April 29, 2008 at 10:25 pm

Nice job on the car :) I really need to do mine! It looks really bad since we just got back from a weekend away!


31 Tracy April 30, 2008 at 1:34 am
