Thread Name: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House

The afternoon packing stint was productive, after I realized that I could start with appliance duplicates I've wanted in Ohio-- to think of packing as 'shopping the house'!

So the hutch base's purge began after I realized I can take my old faithful rice cooker to Ohio now that Hardi just HAD to buy an instant pot. Looking for the rice cooker, I saw 2 small crockpots and a huge antique turkey roaster which I bagged (dust and all) for Goodwill. I packed the rice cooker box with a china teapot, because social life in Ohio has me serving tea weekly and that teapot will finally see regular use. Also added, 2 more place settings of our flatware, and a silicone drainer.

Hardi will hopefully pull out the rest of the hutch base's contents I can't reach, tonight, and dust out the shelves, which will make room for boxed cookbooks now clogging the hutch's upper section. Also to be packed for Ohio, a special one plus my late mom's waffle iron for my Ohio son. A box or two of cookbooks will go to the library sale, along with misc farmette books.
