9,400 things gone, only 600 to go
I can see why I avoided the china question for so long. It’s easy not to question an item when fits a recognizable category.
You’ll remember early on in the project that I often struggled to recognize things in my own home. There were plastic bits, toy parts, pieces of string, broken chalk, silly putty, nuts and bolts, silly bands and odd-shaped batteries I’d never seen before. I found plastic pieces from the car, McDonald’s toys, bike tires, furniture parts, spiders and fries. Gross!
But when something fits a category like fine china, it pretty much sorts itself. Who cares if there are 80+ plates that I don’t use?
It’s all china and it belongs in the china cupboard, right?
Yikes! That’s the kind of thinking that got me into this mess in the first place. So with all your comments and suggestion I garnered the strength to set aside the 16 pieces I actually want and need.
I’ve listed the other 131 pieces for sale. Gulp! Thanks for holding my hand through this. I’m delighted to have these useful pieces in my rotation.
It’s easy to fall into the keep it because I already have a place for it trap.
It can happen to anyone, even Squirrel.
It looks like I’ll have my work cut out for me in tomorrow’s inventory. For those of you who are waiting for it, here’s the rest of my kitchen inventory.
Better get yourself a coffee.
