Dish pan hands

Wash, dry, put away.  
Wash, dry, put away.
Bin it.  Keep it.  Give it away.

Unfortunately not much got put in the give away pile.  Two angel tins and a white display container.  I think it was more of a sort and tidy day rather than a declutter day.  On the upside, I did get the fridge sorted.  Not too many gremlins hiding in there.  One jar of jam that was past its best before date.  No cucumbers that your fingers sink into when you pick them up. My lucky day.  The fridge is sparkly and clean.  About six bottles with a dribble of sauce in them have now been washed and recycled.  Even cleaned the plastic guard down the very bottom of the fridge and captured all those dust bunnies living underneath.

I've done the top shelf of the pantry - put all the vases in the same spot.  One of the declutter rules is if you haven't used it in a year - out it must go.  Only exception is seasonal stuff ie Christmas plates etc. etc.  I had to keep some stuff tho. like the teapot handmade by a friend for a wedding present, the candlestick with my name on it, the ice bucket and water jug I won in a raffle, and of course the silver teapot. 

I'm now halfway through the next shelf down. Medicines, sprays, candles, clutter, clutter and more clutter.  Should be easy to do, the hard thing is cleaning up after the cleaning up.  Must remember to move M's bed back the way it was as he says he's not been sleeping that well since we moved it two weeks ago.  Maybe I need to revisit those feng shui books on the bookcase.  Sleep well.
