I cleaned out my kitchen junk cabinet and got rid of:
- all my mugs (probably about 5)
- all my Ikea kids plastic ware (2 sets each of bowls, plates and cups - I think there are 6 colors?)
- a few misc. utensils that I never use - butter knife, Pampered Chef onion holder
- 2 pitchers I don't need
- about 5 boxes of teas I haven't drank
- and some other things I can't remember

I haven't updated in a while, so I hope I can remember everything!

-- 7 broken ornaments
-- 1 carload of paper and cardboard recycling!
-- one tabletop Christmas tree and TONS of bows
-- bag of trash from the garage

There's more, but I don't remember now

I'll call all of that 20...

I made my goal of 100 items sold/traded/gifted/donated this month! Now off to the "2008 items in 2008" challenge ...

We used 12 old tiles I found in an upstairs bathroom from a previous owner of our house which we made into photo coasters for Christmas gifts.

I also cleaned out a bunch of junk from the girls' toys. Maybe 20 items?

My total so far is 50. There are just a few more days to get it up to 120!!

I meet my goal of 500 items for December.
The basement looks nice. The 3 kids was able
to run around even. I cleared out 1 of the small cold celler.
Now I need my dh to go through his stuff.

I went through my jewelery box and threw out about 40 things. Earrings with no matches, cheap necklaces and other stuff I've had since I was a teen and am still hanging onto...why???

I would like to get a nice flat box that will fit inside a dresser drawer. Any suggestions?

The jewelery brings my total to 90.
