13 Categories of 13 Things I'm Getting Rid Of

Thursday Thirteen

The Captain will be home today – so I decided to clean up (he’s a real neat nick) I knew just tossing out 13 things wouldn’t make a dent – so I decided to find 13 things in 13 different areas or categories around the house.
1. Kitchen
Set of 3 bowls with lids (alright, they were whipping cream containers), a ladle and whisk – must be for an army mess hall they are huge, a metal scoop, a wooden spoon – still in the paper wrapper from the ice cream cup,
Set of 7 corks from wine bottles – I think I got them in a $1 box at an auction, a rubber ring from an old canning jar, a paring knife – broken tip,
a rusty butcher knife, bear honey container with too dark honey, plastic cap from a cough syrup bottle, clear plastic tube from ????? – it’s cracked, and a broken night light with an extra cover

2. Books - this took the longest – I must have over a thousand books – but I have a hard time parting with any:

Wow that's quite a bit of stuff!!

amy said...

What a list, thats awesome!

Kristi K. said...

That's a great idea! I could probably do a list like that and not even see a dent in my excess junk. But it sounds much easier to do categorized that way. Cool!

JAM said...

Great Gooble-dy Goo, woman!

You're just a wee bit of an overachiever this week, eh?

We actually need to get rid of a bunch of stuff around our house too. I'm too lazy to make a list of them though.

Good work. I'm sure the Captain will be proud.

What would posess you to get rid of a whole bag of pinecones!?! LOL
I'm guessing that since you are getting rid of a cassette holder of tapes, you don't miss the one that I found of yours in our garage??
I want those decks of cards! We can't keep ONE good set here, and you have enough to throw out 7 sets!
Don't send me any, though, because its probably cheaper to buy some.
