Well, not really. I still have the drawers and side cabinets on the lower section to do, but this is the last of the upper china cabinet. 🙂
Gone are 6 big beer glasses from Dick’s last resort, a large red glass bowl with silver ornaments in it, several un-matched wine glasses, and a few other smaller items. Re-organized and looking much more pleasing to the eye. 🙂
Today I tackled the last drawer of the buffet and the other side cabinet area.
I also decided that it is now time to take the mircrowave that I removed from the kitchen over to Goodwill. I really do not miss it, and have found that if I have something to be re-heated, I use more traditional methods (aka the oven, or on the stove). They don’t really take that much longer, and I have to tell you, the food actually takes a whole lot better than when it is heated in a mircrowave. It retains the moisture and flavor. 🙂
Here is the drawer and side-cabinet before the cleaning:
Here they are after:
Missing – the candle and cups from the cabinet (both off to the resale shop); several table linens have been removed. I also decided to dedicate one drawer to the napkins, that way they don’t get all crushed and the table linens are better organized.
In anticipation of taking Sunday off (see below) from decluttering, I tackled three of the drawers of the dining room buffet. All of these basically hold table linens and napkins.
I culled a few older table linens and moved some paper christmas napkins to a more appropriate place in the cabinet in the laundry room, where my other paper napkins reside.
Okay – so I took Sunday “off” from decluttering. I was still very productive though. I power-washed my driveway. That took me a good 3 hours, and it looks great! Of course then I had to get cleaned up and ready for the Super-bowl. I will get back to decluttering Monday.
I have a large dining room buffet cabinet that really needs some de-cluttering work.
This is what I took out of one cabinet area
What was this Christmas stuff – candles, cookie tins, and a candle holder – doing in there? ? Well, you can’t put candles in the attic in Houston… they will MELT; and we don’t have basements, they flood when it rains. That said, I obviously haven’t used them, so why keep them?? Okay – here is my plan; keep the star candles for the national holidays (Groundhog day (tomorrow!!), Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day)… But wait… where will I store them?? Maybe they will take a spin on ebay and then off to the resale shop…
This is what the de-cluttered buffet cabinet looks like now
