Field Lilies, with her decluttering effort called Making Space. Why not join in, and maybe write a post a week about how the endeavor is going? I've been working at this, and here's my Week 2 report:
November 9 — a piece of cardboard (the back of a stationery tablet). along with a matching sized piece of carbon paper. Stashed in my stationery cupboard, it was obviously something I’d used in crafting or writing something or other, quite a few years ago. No idea what the project was anymore.
November 11 — 6 mugs being rehomed to our little camp. We found a great Black Friday deal on a Keurig for the camp, but we’ve realized that not every mug is a practical size for it. I winnowed out my mugs yet again and chose some of the larger ones to take to the camp.
I also went through my dishtowel/dishcloth/potholder drawer and threw away 1 potholder. 4 potholders are going to the camp, where the only two I have there are rather thin but have sentimental value. I am also taking 4 dish towels to camp.
November 12 — a glass tumbler with log cabin scene going to the camp.
A paperback book, a heavy glass stein, and a slate wall hanging with a teddy bear motif headed for the thrift store.
I cleaned out my utensil drawer and threw away the following: 2 old containers of dental floss which I kept there for splitting cake layers (haven’t done that in years!); an old metal pastry blender and donut cutter; a tupperware gadget for buttering corn; assorted plastic ware and plastic cooking gadgets like pasta measurers, etc. A metal gadget which seems to have been a spout topper for a tea kettle. I don’t even remember what it is or why it was stashed there.
November 13 — to the trash: 1 rusty melon ball cutter.
Headed for the camp: 2 ladles, one large and one small, 2 pie servers, 2 paring knives, 2 large knives, 1 bottle/can opener; 2 sets metal measuring spoons; 1 apple corer/slicer.
