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.
From the pantry, some bbq tools we don't use anymore. ..a bunch of recyclables...old cereal for the compost pile...and bunch of plastic bags to go back to the grocery store for recycling...and trash!!!
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.

~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)
