Thursday, Use that crap up!

     Well I am on day three of no diet coke and I am cranky and headachey but persevering. As usual I am having a hard time getting back into the shop after and almost 2 week hiatus.  I love to be lazy and get nothing done in there.  Well I can't say I was really lazy yesterday as I hit my exercise goal and steps of 12,500.  But I did no sewing.  There was work brought in so I have no excuse not to get something done today.

     I deep cleaned under the bathroom sinks in the master bath and the spare bath upstairs, also a little out of the kitchen.  Just in those areas I found 96 things to get rid of or donate.  Today I will tackle the kitchen sink and some other cupboards.  What do I really use?  How many do I really need?  Is this necessary?  Also I am looking for things to use up.  These 1/2 full conditioners, that I found and expensive face and eye creams that have been given to me.  Use this crap up!

These are things I found that I need to use up, and I am going to, so I don't waste.  Now I did not buy any of these they were gifts, my family must think that I look old or something. I am always getting wrinkle cream and night creams.  Is it a hint?


I found three bottles of 1/2 used conditioner under the sinks, so these will get used before I open another bottle.  I can be so wasteful. Also a really nice jar of bath salts, so I will use these, silly not to.

I will make a shrimp salad for a funeral tomorrow.  Hub's will play at the funeral and take the salad with him as I will have the Littles.

So today I am going to:

1. pay bills
2. make a shrimp salad
3. clean under sink in kitchen
4. Make  spaghetti and meatballs for hub's, I will have meatballs and salad change up did frozen soup in stead
5. sew uniforms, a bridesmaid dress, shorten coat sleeves, and 3 or 4 zippers.
6. take a small load of things to goodwill
7. exercise and get in my steps


     I am off to set the world on fire, or myself whichever comes first.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  1. You are doing great! When we moved, I found SO many toiletries that we'd never used. I posted them on our local freebie swap, and they were gone! I didn't want to move them. It really opened my eyes to how much junk we have, or duplicates we don't really need. I'm better now, although we still have areas where we have too much.

    1. I am really trying to just declutter and get rid of as much stuff as I have. It is hard after years and years of accumulation.

  5. Wow! Cold turkey on the diet Coke? Very impressive and something I don't think I could ever accomplish - I am doing more of a "step down" plan. ;) I, too, have massive amounts of decluttering to do around the house and I'm sure I will be in the same boat regarding beauty/bath supplies.

    1. I would love to step down but I have tried several times and then I am right back at my old self. Yes use that crap up!

  6. Hopefully the headaches will quit in a day or two. Today the master bath cabinets are on my decluttering schedule. There are so many items in there that I need to either use or get rid of. I am tired of being bound by stuff!

    1. It is amazing how much stuff we accumulate. I did not get the sink done yesterday but I am going to after the babies leave.
