Journey to the forgotten places... the final episode

So - it's been several days now that I've been working on my cupboard.  I have to say - this afternoon, I am just OVER IT!!!

It's been easy going, just taking it in little chunks, but Ken has decided that this decluttering stuff is good, and so we've been to the dump with a trailer load of stuff, and now he's giving the garage the once-over.  The good thing is that lots is going in the bin, being sorted, and will leave the house... eventually. 

With the demise of my brother's house and now the subsequent sale of their home, I'm sure that he's going to need to be restocking some of the necessities of life.  Such as tea towels, bins, glasses, serving dishes etc.  All of that is in the "to leave" pile but now, instead of removing things immediately, we're storing them in case he needs something.  Hopefully it won't be too long, but I truly can't see the point in getting rid of stuff for him to then go out and need to buy it. 

Anyway, back to the forgotten cupboard.  Have some pictures - the whole way along...

The final product.  I use everything that's in this cupboard regularly...
I'm really glad I took pictures of the journey!!

I took everything out, and again, put like with like.  I could then see what I had and what needed to go back in....


  1. Well done Sharynne! I did some similar decluttering recently, putting like with like. But I didn't manage to actually throw anything much out. Some things I may only use once every 3 or 4 years, but I DO use them.
    Some of my excess might go to our daughter in law, who has just moved up here with hardly anything.
    The pantry is in a real mess again, so that will get sorted again within the next few weeks. :)

    I noticed you decluttered the grog from the cupboard............ ;o) glad you had your priorities right Sharynne! Woo Hoo!!

  3. Wow what a neat cupboard now! Can I suggest you print out your pic of how it is supposted to look and stick it inside the door with clear contact. Then there will be know more excuses of "I didn't know where it goes" and you will keep yourself in check befoe it gets cluttered again.
