So, I did this today:


I went through my plastics cabinet and matched up all the containers and lids, and these are the leftovers.  After I snapped this photo, I threw them out.  I think President Obama could get a budget deal through Congress and not feel as satisfied as I do, looking at this picture. Because now I have room in the plastics cabinet for the 3 stacking cooling racks I bought on a whim last December.  For the past 4 months, they've been wandering around the kitchen, looking for a home, and today? They found one.

I love happy endings.


  1. I so very much need to do this. And clean out a lot of other closets and cabinets as well, but who's got the time? One shelf at a time...

  2. You do know that as soon as you throw those remainders out, their respective tops and bottoms will resurface? Under a bed, down behind the stove/fridge, in a forgotten lunch least that's what happened to me....

    1. They have been living in my cupboard a really long time for just that reason. It took everything I had to toss them yesterday.

  3. Tomorrow you'll find at least 1/2 the lids that were missing ;)

  4. You threw them out? NOOOOoooooo! I need that red one.

  5. the lids are with the socks, right?
