    I have to make a cardboard run to the recycling center. You all are reminding me.

    Got rid of the knife sharpener and scissors that were in our knife butcher block. Had them over 20 years and never used them. Now getting to the knives we use will be a lot easier.

    Three bags to goodwill. Books and thread to granddaughters and two heirlooms to son.

    Child went through a bunch of old sports things that had been stored in a downstairs closet. Took several bats, rip board, batting helmet, etc. About a dozen different sports balls ended up in the garbage and the rest will get boxed up for yard sale or donation. Almost ready to start putting stuff back in the closet!!! LOL

    3 containers of flavored salts this morning. I haven't used them in 3 years. Containers in the recycling.

    This is very embarrassing to admit, but I went through my spice cupboards and found 27 bottles of expired spices to toss!

    oh don’t feel bad. We ended up with many many many jars of spices when sets of friends moved and left them as well as lots of other stuff to us. Spices and refrigerators, that’s what we got from them. I have so many peppercorns. I do honestly think the black peppercorns will outlive me. We don’t use that much pepper.

    EJ: I will echo that you shouldn't feel bad; we did this cull a few years ago and probably tossed a comparable number. We've since tried to be more disciplined about buying what we'll use, but Penzey's often includes a freebie to try (sometimes something we end up really liking!), and it is nice to try something new occasionally, and sometimes you'll hit a fail.

    PS: We use a lot of peppercorns!

    I found two table clothes in my linen closet and at least one is going to go. Even for guests I use placemats any more. They are hand me downs from the 60's and sort of neat colorful patterns so will keep one just because or until the next purge. I recall using a table cloth several years ago.

    I love tablecloths! I have way too many and am really drawn to them although half the time we do use placemats instead. I need to count mine and really ponder if I will use them all.
