    OMG! I was cleaning the top of the fridge which I don't do as often as I should. You could have asked me 100 times if there was anything in the cabinets above the fridge and I would have told you 100 times NO! I decided to look and there were more freaking coffee cups!! Plus a salad bowl that was still unopened, random candlestick holders (we own no candles by the way), and some wine glasses and three bottle of alcohol (and neither of us drink!). Into the trash with all of it!!

    We only have one local thrift store and it is only open when I am at work. If you drop stuff off when they are closed, they fine you. I guess they have security camera that can read license plates. Not worth a ticket to do a good deed unfortunately.

    Dried beans keep for years. If the popcorn pops and smells good, it is fine. If it doesn’t smell like popcorn, it probably won’t taste good either, but it won’t hurt you.

    I went through my large pile of books waiting to be read and culled out the ones that have been there for years, that I obviously don't want to read. A couple are action and adventure that my MIL in the nursing home would enjoy, so I'll bring those to her and donate the others.

    I know. I have been giving stuff to AmVets and Purple Heart lately but they have stopped coming around for pick ups. Used to give a lot when boys were little and out growing everything so quickly.
