This Week on the Home Front Part 6

I completely cleaned out my pantry this week!

Good finds: 2 new saucepans that I had no idea were hiding in the dark recesses of the top shelf and two Ronald McDonald houses full of can tabs to donate.

To Donate: Candle holders that have been in there since before I moved in almost four years ago.

Combined - plastic utensils. Instead of having five bags/boxes of them, we now have two, one for spoons and one for forks.

To Throw Away or Recycle:
old grocery receipts (a huge stack of them)
half a bag of peanuts
a broken measuring cup
corn meal
two half-used containers of bread crumbs
half a bag of sunflower seeds
chocolate coffee - old and will never get used anyway
23 plastic grocery bags
Christmas resealable baggies from 3 years ago
honey
half eaten can of cashews
sponge mop replacement - wrong type
cooking oil - old and cloudy
dusty, plastic spoons
vacuum belt for vacuum we no longer own
empty wine bottle
2 candle jar lids
a bottle of saki


It's amazing how much accumulates in your pantry!

Thank you of thinking of me during my move. Now I still have a lot of unpacking to do - but that's on the back burner for now :o(

Isn't it sometimes difficult to make decisions of what to get rid of but then it's so nice when there are so many obvious things?
