Day 2: Under the kitchen sink. Today's soundtrack: Best of Simon and Garfunkel
|Wow look at all that stuff!|
Why are these things even under there? A lot of stuff just needed to be returned to where I use it, like these planters.
Away with things that I don't use. This box of gloves made me sad every time I saw it. It was leftover from when I was helping to care for my dad at his home during his last days. I think I didn't want them to go to waste or something. Bye bye gloves.
Sorry Amy Daczyzn, but I can see no daily use for bread tabs.
Now this is useful...3 empty orange mesh bags become one new scrubby for the sink.
A jar of rubber bands and tiny toys. It's like a reminder of the kids' toddlerhood in miniature. For now it stays.
Hello, fire extinguisher. Thank goodness I haven't needed you lately.
Two Jones soda bottles with a photo of my brother and sister in law. I had these made and gave them out as a favor at their rehearsal. They were cool and all, but hanging on to stuff like this amounts to living in the past. "Remember that one time when I had that cool idea?" Maybe I need to make space for even more cool ideas.
Finished. Clean, a few useful things are left. Like a frozen juice container---great to pour hot grease into for disposal. Also a small stack of yogurt cups for painting projects, with the vow that I don't keep anymore until I'm out. Things that actually get used in the kitchen are all I have room for. Total time was far less than I thought: about 30 minutes. I even wiped it out.
