Update to Clutter Busting

under the kitchen sink

Proof that we have too much stuff: finding something that you didn’t know you even had. For me, it was an enamel pasta pot, a little basket (tucked into the pot), and a thermos. You may be wondering… How the heck can you lose a pot? It was tucked under the kitchen sink, probably since the time we moved to this house almost six years ago.

Bonus reward: We have been wanting a thermos for the kids lunches but were reluctant to purchase one.  Hmm, I wonder if I do enough organizing a pizza stone will magically appear somewhere. Yeah, probably not.

I am determined to make progress, with your help. Here is a list of my clutter busting accomplishments this week, so far. The new accomplishments, since I last posted Clutter Busting, appear in bold.

How have you been doing in your de-cluttering efforts?

  • Flat surface two (Bedroom dresser)
  • Pots and pans
  • Small appliances
  • Flat surface 3 (Left kitchen pantry)
  • Under the kitchen sink
  • The Car (Hint for those in freezing weather: Grab a laundry basket. Make a mad dash to the car. Fill the laundry basket. Dash back in the house. Sort in the warmth of the living room. Oh, and don’t forget to wear shoes. Brr.)
  • One large food pantry
  • Magazines
  • Flat surface one (Produce bin)
  • Toys (one large contractor bag–whoo hoo)
  • Children’s books
  • Children’s videos
  • Adult Books
  • Cookbooks
  • Adult medicine cabinet
  • Children’s medicine cabinet

I also want to get back into the habit of practicing small kindnesses each day. Because I’m mostly isolated at home this week, the recipients were mainly school bus drivers and neighbors. Fortunately, that still got me through the week.
