I thought it would be fun to post what we got rid of doing the spring fling. I'll post mine has soon as I'm finished the top cupboards.

How about you?

In the box to give away/ donate... a few glass pots I haven't used since we moved here 2 years ago. Cleaning supplies I never use. A swiffer wet jet. Expired foods, not too many. A small box of dessert plates and tea saucers that I never use.

I am cleaning up a floor vac to take to the thrift shop, a picture I had hanging in my kitchen that hangs behind the door and I never see, as well as a mini chopper- I haven't used either in atleast 4 years.

Some jarred pickles and beets and some salad dressings from so long ago I am not sure when. I combined some pasta boxes and tossed a lot of papers. I tossed out some margarine tubs. I don't need as many as I had.

threw away quite a few things...cole slaw dressing, moldy cheese,couple string cheeses that fell behind the veggie bin who knows when, old salad dressing, apple. Put things that go together on specific shelves.
Sad & good at the same time is that I know the whole family will notice I cleaned the fridge. Oh, also did my counters & canisters. I'll tackle the insides of the cabinets tomorrow.

I finally finished in the kitchen. I got rid of:

~2 old jar candles
~lids and containers that didn't have matches
~jugs that didn't have lids
~empty bottle of cleaners
~a pack of cleaning wipes that were dried out
~some stuff in the fridge that hadn't been touched in weeks
~a few things in the counter that I've had since we left Lumberton last year
~a lot of plastic bags
~vacuum cleaner bags that went with our old vacuum
~excess papers and junk in general


Lets just say its a good thing trash day is tomorrow as because the can trash container is full now (Its a good thing there is a mechanical arm that picks it up and dumps it instead of trashmen)
