1,500 things gone, only 8,500 to go
Squirrel took my only salad bowl. I realized it last night while I was tossing salad in my largest pot.
This is where I found it.
Apparently, it’s found a new life as a remote control caddy.
Since I’m on a repurposing jag – I think I’ll reclaim it for salad and give Squirrel one of the many baskets I still have hanging around.
But while we’re on the subject of bowls. I happened to see this in the garage as I was heading out the door this morning:
Poor squirrel. If only that drill was a little smaller, it would have fit in the bowl.
I’m 100% serious when I say, if anyone has any insight into this behaviour, you just might save a marriage.
Of course, squirrel says he’s planning a comeback blog called: “Where Did She Put the Keys?”
If you’re thinking at this point – why doesn’t that woman leave her poor husband alone? Check back tomorrow for my post: “I buy stupid things.” We all have our issues.
My decluttering today was quick and easy. I got rid of 100 things (maybe more) from my oldest son’s school file.
I followed one rule – only keep original artwork. Now I have a collection of the things that represent my son best – not an anthology of worksheets.
I was, and always will be, proud of this piece from preschool:
A minimalist at heart?
What I tossed today: Too many worksheets to count (mixed paper recycling), art with feathers, buttons, stickers etc. (tossed)
