I knew I would run into trouble with my kitchen packing party, and I was right.. I sure ran into a bump in the road with this one. And I have to confess, I did not pack it up like I should.
I’ve decluttered my kitchen, so many times, that every time I opened a cabinet or drawer to empty it, I took one look and realised that there wasn’t really any reason to pack it, as I would just put all the stuff right back where it belonged… So I didn’t, pack it that is!
But even though I did not follow my own rules on this one, I did however manage to shed a few things after all 🙂
And here it is, my kitchen shed;
- 4 measure cups
- 2 knives
- 1 mixing bowl
- 1 set of tiny glad bowls to store food in
- 1 metal water bottle
- 2 serving bowls
- 1 swiffer duster handle
- 4 cleaning cloths
- 2 dinner plates
- 1 trash bin
- 1 food scrap trash bin
- 2 cereal bowls
- 1 frying pan
- Bunch of small river rock, sand and shells for decorations – count as 5
- 1 terracotta plant watering “tube”
- 2 ice cube trays
- 1 pair of chop sticks
- 1 thong to grab hot bowls
- 1 broken soup bowl – that obviously didn’t want to hang around it’s siblings any longer…
- Bunch of decorate stuff for flower arrangements – 17 items
I can’t believe it, that actually turned into 51 items out-the-door, that’s kinda cool! (small happy dance going on here 😉 )
So what room is next?
As I mentioned in my last post, doing the hallway would just be a joke (or a very easy pass) as my hallway is the size of a stamp, and the only thing in it, is the entrance door and a closet. And not to mention that this closet I have already gone through several times, and there is nothing left to get rid off. If I take a seriously good look, I might find a pair of shoes that could need new shoelaces, but other than that, only a few dust bunnies are to be had 🙂
Then there is the guest room. That’s a whole other ballgame! There is no doubt it needs to be done… but right now it looks like an overstuffed piñata, filled up with; boxes from other rooms that are not quite emptied yet, some of the stuff that is going out-the-door that I’m hoping I will find takers for, piles of out-the-door items I have not written about yet ++ It’s been literally treated as an overflow area during my packing party, and it’s a hot mess.
The guest room is NOT going to be fun, as I have a few big huge IKEA wardrobe cabinets, filled with stuff. Since I don’t have much storage rooms, I use these cabinets to store my Christmas decorations, photo collections, electrical stuff, towels, bed linen, guest pillows and covers, golf stuff, other smaller sports stuff, speakers, printer, cables… you get my drift, yes? It is where I store everything!!!
So this is how this is going to go!
This coming weekend, I will clear the room of all the “junk”, unpack the items that belong elsewhere, and prepare myself…
For the following weekend, which will be crunch time for the guest room 😉
