Just a few more bags; housecleaning

Posted by on March 30, 2012 at 2:09 pm.

Our home is looking empty, after my decluttering a few weeks ago… Items we haven’t used in a long time, were either given to the Purple Heart or tossed in the trash.


This past week, I did collect a few odds and ends, that I must have overlooked. Since they were too battered, the only place for them was the trash. Our trash delivery, runs on Friday, and so I had one trash bag full of the ‘decluttered items’ I’d gathered. I ran into a slight problem… I forgot to set out the bag. Whoops! And so this afternoon I trotted the bag of trash to the local dumping zone. Since I’m local it didn’t cost me anything. Just my time and gas.

I haven’t done any cooking today, and I might keep it that way. We have leftovers. The day after I made the chicken fried rice, I made two types of burgers; chicken and black bean burgers. Perhaps I’ll get a chance to take pictures, and post them today, if not I’m sure I’ll be able to post them sometime this weekend.

But back to housecleaning…

Am I missing the items I parted with? Not really, those that were in good condition went to people that could really use the items. The rest were recycled, and tossed in the trash.

Question: Have you been staying on top of your housecleaning?


  • I can’t say I’ve done a lot of housecleaning, but I did decide my bathroom needed a little bit of sprucing up. This involved taking down the covers around my lightbulbs in there, taking them into the kitchen and giving them a good cleaning, which I think is the first time in the 11 years I’ve been in this house I’ve done that; that’s a shame, I know. Made me feel better though and it’s brighter as well. lol

    Hi @Mitch Mitchell,
    That brings back memories, I remember doing that with our old light covers. With the new ones, they’re enclosed, so don’t appear to get dusty, but I’ll still be taking them down (eventually) to clean them.
