Forgotten Space

Posted by Alexandra on September 2, 2011 in Clutter, DIY |

Since I will be moving to a new house, as soon as I finish repairs and remodeling, I decided to try and get rid of things I don’t need and reduce the amount of stuff I have to move.  So this week I tackled a kitchen cabinet that is used for storage.

I don’t even remember the last time I really looked in the cabinet.  The bender is probably close to 30 years old.  Yes it still works and I kept it as a back up.  I will have to think about letting it go.  I also found a set of Oneida Arbor Rose silverware I didn’t even remember I had.


The picture doesn’t do the silverware justice, the silverware is really lovely.  I will have use them when I move to the new house.

The other thing that I discovered was I had lots of plastic utensils and styrofoam plates and bowls.  I stopped buying styrofoam several years ago but evidently still had a stash in the cabinet.


I guess I will take these to a party we will be attending next week.

Here’s what I ended up with:


Not a lot of things were eliminated but at least I  know what I have now. What about you, do you have spaces that you have forgotten what it contains?

I am participating in the 52 Weeks of Organizing Challenge hosted by Laura at Orgjunkie, and Organizing Mission Monday at Organize with Sandy.  Please check them out to find other organizing projects.
