    Sold a small bar cart on FB marketplace yesterday afternoon. I have a couple of boxes to go to the thrift store on Friday. I have two bags of egg cartons in my car to give to my egg lady. Took a kitchen trash bag full of plastic bags to the recycling tub at the grocery store yesterday.

    I used our local FB gifting page to give away 2 wine glasses, 3 martini glasses, 4 mojito glasses, and several cookie cutters. Still waiting for someone to bite on the 6 pilsner glasses. No, we did not become teetotalers, we just do not need as many specialized types of glassware as we had accumulated.

    I have been working with a container principle with organizing. I bought a glass front wall cabinet from Habitat for Humanity, not very big, and all my really good glassware has to fit in it. So I am now at my limit, no more glass unless I get rid of something.

    I collect champagne glasses so I guess I don't actually collect them anymore now, I just have a collection!

    I broke the last wine glass from my mom’s set of wine glasses, not purposely.

    I have several champagne size glasses from her but they are no fun, they’re so tiny. I may or may not move them to another house.Since they tend to spark more irritation than joy, they will probably not move with me.

    Over the years I have "not purposely" broken more wine glasses than I could possibly count!

    I actually like the idea of the "stemless" wine glasses as a replacement for ALL my drinking glasses as they seem fancy enough for wine, yet just as good for orange juice, water, whatever. Maybe someday. Mugs are a totally different animal. LOL

    We have 2 tall champagne flutes remaining of the 4 we bought before we were married. Some specialty glasses are justified! However, we do tend to use pint glasses for a lot of things including mojitos, beer or cider. In our little house, it is better to go with multi-taskers whenever possible.
    Actually, the pilsner glasses wouldn't make terrible champagne flute stand-ins, they are quite tall and slender. I will still try to re-home them though. We don't drink all that much champagne anyway.

    When I moved I only kept the stemless wine glasses because they can be used anytime.

    I drink wine from a glass juice jar when there's no company over. It goes in the dishwasher. If there are guests, then a "real glass" is used!

    Back to forbidding hubby from looking in the trash bin! So.many things went that I filled a couple of trash bags. There's the beginnings of breathing room in the kitchen and my closet is much lighter too.

    A big screen tv that wasn't smart was not grabbed by anybody before trash pickup, so its in the landfill - not what I thought would occur. It did work, and I taped a sign on it. Oh well.
