4 - binders (donated)
1 - hanger (trash)
1 - broken new years hat (trash)
4 - rotten stuff that I had to clean out of my fridge. UGH! I can't believe we've eaten out so much than an entire cooked chicken went bad.
1 - bag of dog food that makes my dog sick (food intolerances) (donated)

sooo... 11 things out today. I'm sure there was more but it's hard to keep track of it all day and I am not so dedicated to this cause as to carry a notebook like some of you do!

We've been crafting and are out of adhesive. I went hunting in physical stores today and only found ONE, which won't last long. So, I hopped online and checked Google, Amazon, ebay, etc for refills for the dispensers I already own. Turns out, several are no longer being produced. I pitched three such dispensers. (It was hard to do! ) = 3

Yes! Love this. I unsubscribed to several publications--electric and paper--last month, and it's so nice to have an empty mail box/in box at the end of the day. So much easier with out all the subscriptions.

busy morning here! I cleaned the junk pile off the top of my cookbooks and while I didn't manage to get ride of a lot except a big stash of paper, a lot of the stuff there had homes to go to so they went!

4 ornamental objects - trash
1 big stack of papers (count as 3) - recycle
1 shoebox - recycle


and I need help... in the shoebox there were a bunch of little items, most of which have been re-homed to where they are supposed to be. There was also a set of 6 darts, 3 of each colour, plastic. We have no dartboard. I kept them, put them in a drawer where they clearly don't belong because they have no home.... any ideas what to do with these? It seems a shame to throw them out, I don't think they'll make it to the shelf if I donate them but keeping them is obviously kind of dumb. I don't plan on having a dartboard in my house in the near (or distant) future and if I did I would probably get nicer darts. Arg!

I listed them for free on Craiglist and had a taker within an hour. They'll be gone by tomorrow Nice to know they are going to a good home. They don't really qualify as having 'missing parts'... not in my mind at least.

No problem. They are a set... just missing a dart board to throw them at. So technically I guess you are right. and the people who said they wanted them thought they were adult darts, so they don't want them. bummer. here's hoping!

I got lazy with this. It's been a few weeks since I've posted but I've got -

2 pairs pants
2 books
5 makeup items
11 items from my underwear drawer
7 magazines
2 catalogs
chair
old humidifier
box
2 toy trucks
3 little Imaginext accessories
shoebox
2 cards
booklet

41 items + 222 = 263/2010 items gone. We do, however, still have 2 unused TVs and a useless old computer DH refuses to part with.

darts are gone to a new home!
(and as an added tidbit of info, these are the darts that I played with as a kid, so they have a lot of sentimental value, despite not being high quality, so it's hard to give them up but I can't see being as brave as my parents and letting my kids play darts, not for a LONG time!!)

I don't think I'll end up with "credit" from today's activities, but I wanted to mention it because without this challenge it may have taken a lot longer to complete the second task.

I have been casually looking to replace 10-year old to 20-year old cooking utensils for a year or so and stepped it up to seriously looking last week. After TWENTY stores, I finally found replacements today!!! AS SOON AS WE CAME HOME, I unpacked the bag, recycled any packaging, set aside any warranties, washed and dried the new utensils, and threw away the old, rusted items or had DD take the pertinent items up to our charity bag. DH is cooking dinner tonight and is oooohing and aaaahing over the new items!

For my own purposes, here's my list:

[OLD ---> NEW]

set of 5 or 6 plastic measuring spoons (ancient and the edges are shredding) ---> one-piece stainless with flippable silicone ends that provides the four main measurements

cheap apple/pear corer ---> lifetime warranty apple/pear corer (I have purchased too many cheap ones that always rust!)

cheap pastry blender that we use for LOTS of tasks (horribly rusted!) --> high-quality pastry blender (DH is using it for browning ground beef right now and loves it.)

broken pasta server --> new pasta server with hole in center that is one-serving size

scissor-style tongs DH despises and I never use (horribly rusted and annoying design) ---> lifetime warranty one-handed tongs (gravity is involved)

pointy-end, deep well, short-handle AWESOME (But ancient - 20+ years old - and will not come clean any longer and shredding at the edges) plastic spoon ---> narrow-end, deeper-than-average, shorter-than-average-handle silicone spoon (the function should be roughly equal and this was the absolute HARDEST item to replace)

flat-edge, deep well, fairly good spoon that just doesn't clean up well (DH is taking it to work to use in the kitchen there) ---> flat-edge, silicone covered stainless steel spoon with a deeper-than-average well (I hope the function is similar as this was the second hardest item to replace)

I think that is all and I brought home one new deep well wood stirring/serving spoon that is beautiful to look at and fits perfectly in one's hand (both DH & I love it!). I found this in a restaurant supply store tucked in with junky plastic stuff for only $4 (includes tax) and it is obviously a GEM!!! It is so hard to find deep well serving spoons in anything but stainless steel these days. Grrr... We have gorgeous, lifetime warranty stainless steel cookware and using SS utensils scratches it mercilessly. Technically, I need to remove another item from the kitchen to be even and I'd rather remove an additional item or two. I've been going through the kitchen a few times a year for years and always find something we don't use.....

24 more items: email unsubscribe, clothes, toys.

Has anyone found that it takes a few times to unsubscribe your email? Loemans keeps sending daily email.

My total went over 1000!
