- Dish Deposit- how else ya gonna say china hutch??
Well, I was sitting in my recliner, surveying my
kingdom living room, and enjoying the view. The nice, uncluttered, clean deceptively clean looking, view. And, I was thinking of what my next Declutterathon project could possibly be; since my whole house was pretty much decluttered down to the bone!
AHA!! Or so you thought!! Yes, or so I thought! Until my roving eyes landed on this.
Oh yeah, the corner hutch/ china cabinet/dish deposit place. (At least, that’s what Granny always used it for; me? This and that, some of whatever thrown in for good measure.)
I thought it looked like some books on the top shelf, but I wasn’t positively sure, so I ventured closer. Sure enough! Books!! Lots of books!!
12 to be exact! How did I not go thru these already when I went thru books last time?? Got me! Anyway, the cookbook is a no-brainer donate! Then the 8 romances went straight into the trash. I still can’t understand how they’ve been here in my house the last 11 months, when I’ve been purging so much!!
And the 3 keepers.
Grace Livingston Hill romances are so sweet, old fashioned, and Christian. She includes the plan of salvation in each one. Remember when I agonized so over my 3 boxes of Graces???? Some that I’d had for 4 decades?? Yeah, well, I still think about them occasionally, but still haven’t cried over them!! (And I know I could still name a large percentage of them too! I loved those books!! But as it turns out, I’m loving my clean open spaces even more!)
Then the drawer, in the middle. In my other trailer, this was supposed to be my office drawer, since I didn’t have a desk. Now that I have a desk, all this has a home to go to. YAY for knowing where stuff belongs!
Ah! Looks good! Ahem. Oh, okay, except for those 3 things it looks good. I’ll take care of them, but no need for another pic!
Then the shelves below. Not too bad! Only 2 things!! The printer paper goes in the desk. Let’s see what that other thing is.
A box. A completely empty box. Since I’ve been using the antenna for 10 months now, I think it’s safe to say I’m keeping it! Recycle away! Empty shelves never looked so good!
No dishes deposited here, and no more junk books either!!
