Day 3 of De-cluttering

Well, Day 3 for me was the lower cupboards in my kitchen.  Wow, I found so much.  I definitely made the 10 mark a few times over. 

Things I found:
  • Sorted all the containers I have and removed numerous lids that had no container.  I saved one extra lid just in case I find a missing container.  They'll probably be found in the sandbox or as a cat's dish or something and I won't really want to use them.
  • Coffee can lids (3)  We use the coffee containers but not the lids.  They are great for dispensing chicken feed etc.
  • a bundt pan that is way to small for our familly.  I have a regular sized one that works better for us.
  • Grill tools (yes, more) that we have the equivalent of.
  • Silverware that matches nothing (we already have two full sets)
Now my "Tupperware" shelves are organized and I found some things I'd been missing again.   Oh, another thing that may be an incentive to you, it took me all less than a half hour to organize and get the kitchen back to normal.

Enjoy your day.  A few minutes clearing our your cupboards will help you when you're looking for containers to put lunches in etc.  If you work and need some time with your kids, play the matching game with them while they discuss their day with you.  Have them sort the containers with lids that go with them.  If they do this, they'll be more apt to want to keep it that way when they put dishes away. 

Making the most of today,


  1. While you are cleaning out cupboards have you found and old fashioned applesauce masher and water bath canning pot/supplies? I left them there when I moved out and I wondered if they were still there. If you use them, keep them, but if you find them and they go in the throw away pile, let me know. :-)

  2. No, not in the kitchen. I found a couple of canning jars in the attic, but nothing else up there. I don't even think it's in the basement. It may have found the throw away pile before we even moved in, sorry. But I will watch for those things.

  3. It's my fault for leaving them there in the first place. I never would have thought I would want them again. I figured since I was moving into town I would never have a garden and can again. Who of the other renters may have taken it with them. It's not a big deal, I just wondered! Have fun cleaning. :-)
