Useful but underused

All of the items above were once of use to me but have been languishing in my kitchen cupboard unused for a while now. The little glass jars would be more useful to me if it wasn’t for the fact that they came into this house as candle jars and the smell has lingered. The carafe was replaced some time ago by smaller bottles with stoppers. The keeper cup had a top that, from the get go, dribbled down the front of ones shirt every time it was used. I accidentally broke the pestle that went with the mortar and you can’t replace one without the other. And the saucers just don’t get used.

So although, all but the keep cup, were in used at some point they are now just a waste of space. And I have no space to waste.

  1. You continue to inspire, Colleen, with the simple idea that if a person
    jettisons 1 item a day, in a years’ time 365 items will have painlessly
    left the premises. Like you, I enjoy crafting & even making cards. Sometimes
    I remind myself that if I make just 1 card a day at years end I’ll have 365 cards.
    (never happens, because I invariably give them away… but the PRINCIPLE is
    sound.) The more streamlined I can keep my house, the easier to clean, organize,
    and have time for activities I love…

  2. I’m preparing for another foray into the closets & cabinets to pull out things I no longer need. I have been working on a new plan of eating. Once I have figured out what I really find myself preparing on a regular basis, I will declutter what I don’t use. I really need to declutter so I have everything easy to reach.

  3. I just took 18 more items to the thrift store this week! All things I was not using enough to justify keeping. It feels great!

    I love seeing your emails in my inbox again!
