Thank goodness I am getting better at telling my MIL "no" when she wants to "downsize" her stuff to us :
well, I've gotten most of the kitchen decluttered (I know I said I was going to do the bedroom but I need to catch up on more laundry before I go there). Here's what I've boxed up:
- four pots and two lids to post on craigslist (they are good quality but we rarely use them).
- my "extra" dishes that I never use: 8 dinner plates, 6 bowls, 7 dessert dishes, 5 soup bowls, 2 tea saucers, one condiment tray, 10 glasses, crab forks, an extra pie wedge server thing, an extra spatula, a plastic tub, a popsicle form with most of the inserts missing,
-a pair of stride rites to go on ebay
-plastic colander (the one dh used to use in college)
-two springform pans
-a bundt pan
-a glass half gallon jug
stuff that isn't going to craigslist/ebay is going to be posted to freecycle tonight and whatever isn't gone by Sunday will be taken to thrift on Monday.
my total count thus far is 216 (conservatively because I didn't count every magazine and every article of clothing I got rid of)!
