8,200 things gone, only 1,800 to go
I was going to do a post on Squirrel’s garage tonight but I’m too tired to properly enjoy it. I’ll put that off until tomorrow and catch you up on some miscellanea.
Remember when I pulled 100 condiments out of my fridge on Day 2 and only put 30 back in? Well, 15 of them have not been touched since that day. Tonight was as good a night as any to bid them adieu.
Top Scotch? What was I thinking? Everyone knows Hershey’s chocolate syrup is the only ice cream topping.
Same thing here. This lot sat in the cupboard for three months silently expiring.
Normally, I don’t count a fridge or cupboard purge in my 100 things, but none of this stuff had been touched since the day I started.
Plus, I’m running out of things to get rid of. That’s right! I’m running out of things to get rid of – even I can’t believe I just wrote that!
Sure, there are still a few boxes and bins in the garage and Squirrel’s office to go through, but I’m elated to say that the bulk of the work in the house is…drum roll please…finished.
I was forced to go out to the garage tonight because the house purge left me hanging with only 50 things.
Fortunately, Squirrel still has a few tricks up his sleeve. Check out this bucket of bolts he had stashed away in a cupboard.
I especially appreciate the sawdust. Wish I could count it.
But wait! There’s a silver lining.
I can recycle the hundreds of screws and bolts I found at Habitat For Humanity’s Restores. They accept new and used building materials, appliances and home décor items. As with anything, call first to see what they’re currently accepting before you make a trip out there.
I love it when I find a good home for our things.
According to Squirrel our roller blades from 1998 are also in the garage. I doubt anyone will be lining up for these vintage babies but, if I find them, I promise to take a picture of me rollerblading.
Now that’s got to be worth something!
What I Tossed Today: condiments, supplements, toys, towels, pottery, coffee mugs, muffin tin, the perfect pancake (frying pan), nuts and bolts
