    Tonight will be a jacket I am now too hefty to fit into. Have two of these, but keeping one for when I go to city meetings so I don't wear my regular one with the company logo. The company might not want to be associated with my activism, so I squeeze into it.

    Oh no, Early, that's no fun.

    I just went through the cabinet with the plastic wrap and baggies and such. Apparently I am utterly enchanted by tiny little Ziploc type baggies, the size to hold a pair of earrings or a couple of coins or an acorn or something. It seems like I've held onto every one of these that ever came into my possession. I got rid of a lot of them, but I did keep the very best ones, lol. I did substantially decrease the contents of that cabinet though.

    How do you all store the boxes of plastic wrap, aluminum foil, wax paper, etc? Do you have those storage things that attach to the inside of the cabinet door?

    Two small saucepans and a bottle of hot sauce.

    rr - I just bought a thousand (yes, 1000)of those little bags. We use them for jewelry repair bits, actual jewelry until it's ready to go sell, and for the jewelry sales in the museum shop. I didn't really plan to get so many, but they were just a tad more expensive that the 100 pack, so... if you find yourself needing more, let me know lol.

    Yeah, bummed about the table - when you depend on the universe to provide such things, you can't be too picky, and they don't come on demand. this, I believe, is universal payback for refusing to bring home a free metal top outdoor table from a sale last summer, lol. Because we already HAD one. Until, we didn't.

    Just took about 10 pounds of paper/magazines/cardboard etc to the recycle trug from a random-box storage room mini-purge. Put 2 shirts into the thrift box. And removed about a half-pound of dust/lint/floating dust buffaloes from the top of the fridge and several cabinets, into the compost bucket.

    Kitchen storage - I don't have much. We just make do as best we can. I use a fair number of those little half-shelf things from various stores to give me more room for short items - I find them quite helpful. I have a larger one in the chimney cupboard and my foil, wax paper, and plastic wrap go under it, and the baggies (quart, gallon, and washed-for-reuse ) sit on the top. Works for me, but people's kitchen storage in old houses are wildly different, so as always YMMV.

    The boxes of plastic wrap, aluminum foil, etc. are stored in a drawer. We have a lot of storage in our kitchen.


    I have enough aluminum foil to last a lifetime because a friend gave it to me. I’m now consciously using it up.
    I am not a serious person.

    Lol Early, I will keep you in mind if I ever need more.
    Thanks Early and Iris for your input on storage. I think I'll have to see what it's like when the new cabinets are actually in place. Most of our drawers are going to be those pull-outs, so this will be a whole new world for us.

    We only use aluminum foil and that is stored in the same drawer as our silverware and ziploc bags. The drawer is right by the oven/stove so it's very handy.

    I returned a sweater to the Gap on the last day of the month! Total for month: 14.
