Although Mom's move to Tennessee has been put on hold, I'm going forward with cleaning out cupboards and closets. It's going to be a long process since I don't have much free time or energy. I'm hoping I'll be more motivated once I start seeing some results.
We've lived in this house for about a year and a half now, and as a result, have accumulated some junk. I'm by no means a "hoarder", but I could possibly be classified as a "hider". Out of sight, out of mind is one of my many mantras. And it has now come back to bite me in the butt.
This is a cabinet that's in the kitchen island. It comes in very handy when you want to clean off the island. I found some stuff I hadn't seen in awhile: my divorce papers (ewwww), and baby pictures of the girls (awwww). Of course in the mix were plenty of useless items, such as old phonebooks and dead batteries. In the end, I cleared out a lot of extra space. Perfect for when I have to clear off the kitchen island again.
