Got rid of old artificial tree stand, paint pan, wire shelf and brackets, old heater. Still trying to dry out old cans of paint. We also emptied a rusting from the bottom metal cabinet. When DS get a chance to help take it out we will get rid of that too. It was here when we moved in 24 years ago.

Seven more long sleeved shirts added to go to the consignment shop. Got A LOT of new dish towels at the house warming, so older ones will be going to the church. Just need to go through them.

The small desk in my dining room is now tidy. Threw out a lot of old pens and pencils, note papers and such.

Some paper plates, unwanted decor and some cheese spreaders have been added to the pile. I am still hanging on to "entertaining" items. If they are not used over this Summer then they can go. We rarely entertain large groups anymore.

About maybe close to a third done in laundry room. Have thrown out old cleaners and some I just don't use, tubes of flea medicine for cats (haven't had for about 7 yrs.-inside), have some of swifter pads laid out to ask Jaymee about.

Found several light bulbs all through out cabinets and the garden gloves--probably 7 to 9 new pairs. And several packages of the Affresh washer cleaning tablets. At the time this is the only room that I am doing cleaning behind doors.

I threw away a lot of that kind of stuff when we moved last year. I need to do a re-do and see what we have/haven't used since we moved into the house. So easy to just stash laundry room/cleaning stuff and never touch it again. Out of sight, out of mind...

I have two bags of clothing and miscellaneous "stuff". One more bag and I'll summon the Vietnam Vets.

Suggested to DH that he part with T-shirts showing trucks he doesn't own. Before he could say they were "work shirts" I reminded him that he doesn't work anymore.

I have donated 2 pairs of lovely dress pants, 2 cardigans and 4 work blouses. I am now required to wear a uniform to work so will no longer need some of the things in my wardrobe.

DH went through several things and has a small pile that he will offer to his friend - or his friend's son - whoever is the right size.

2 ugly dish towels

Dd took two grocery bags of winter clothes to the homeless shelter where she volunteers. I'm hoping to make another drop off to a donation center this week.
