Hey – Happy Wednesday! So I’m back at it today- following through with the 500 Things Decluttering Challenge and I’ve actually done my decluttering before supper. YAY!
Today’s assignment was to declutter 25 things off the kitchen counter. Okay – so I may have cheated a little on this. I truly use about 99% of the things I keep on my counter regularly.
Today, however, my counter was covered with all the dishes the kids washed (and didn’t dry) last night and other things that we do use all the time (hello silverware!) but simply wasn’t put away. Things I couldn’t/wouldn’t get rid of.
So instead, I got 26 things total off the counter and out of the drawers and out of the cabinets and pantry. I threw several things away immediately and ended up adding more to my giveaway box: a cup, old plugs for griddles we no longer have (FOUR of them??), a broken cutting board (why? – and this will be fire starter), random odd plastic things, and more. I also added the Snapple off the counter (we did NOT like that stuff) and 2 boxes of cookie mix that we won’t be baking.
It doesn’t look like much – and it’s really not – but it does feel pretty good to get rid of a few more things. I think I’ll close that box up tonight and start a new one tomorrow!
So here’s my running total:
Day 3: 26 Things Decluttered
Total Items Decluttered So Far: 156
Have a great night!
