Progress Report, Day 2

Today we finished the dining room/foyer & tackled the kitchen. CJ was out of school, and was a big help (at times). I've realized I've bitten off quite the mother lode!

At the end of the day...

Boxes to Consignment: 2 (for a total of 5 so far, which will all be delivered tomorrow!). Another set of glasses (which I was using instead of the ones in my china cabinet that I really love) and coffee mugs are among the "treasures". (*We won't even discuss the ginormous box of trash...)

Most Difficult to Part With: How many plastic cups and ugly salt/pepper shaker sets does one need?! No heartache there. I did have a few second thoughts about some old cookbooks, but got rid of several I can't recall ever using.

Reward: Labeled cabinet shelves so every dish, mug & appliance has a fixed home. No more T*pperware containers without lids. A pantry I can open in front of guests without shame.
My back is aching and my feet are sore, but I'm SO GLAD I'm doing this!
