Day Eighteen - Spring 30 Day Clutter Buster Challenge

Day Eighteen!  Today's post is going to be quick since I still have so much to do on my to-do list.

This is what is leaving my house today.

I have these two beautiful, brass candelabras that I used to keep on the dining room table.  They were nice there but I don't really have a lot of other brass in the house and they are almost too ornate.  We eat at our dining room table almost everyday.  Our kitchen table only seats two and I kind of like sitting at the formal table even if we are just having hotdogs for dinner.  It makes things seem  more special.

But the candelabras were too tall to be able to talk over.  We had to lean side to side in order to have a conversation with each other.  They just didn't work in the space.  So they are now in the donate box which will be picked up by the Canadian Diabetes Association on Tuesday.  I love that I don't even have to drop things off!  They come right to my door and get them.

What do you keep on your dining room table.  Or if you don't have a dining room table, what do you keep on your kitchen table?  (Just between you and me, right now my kitchen table is covered with coats, backpacks and shopping bags.  I think it's time to do a quick pick up!)


  1. My kitchen table is a hot spot and it is a serious fight to keep it cleared off enough sit at. I keep my meds, a box of kleenex and my diabetes test kit there to remind me (like right now) to test. Mostly we eat in the living room, watching tv.
    Since Flylady, I'm much better at a clean counter and can open the door and not be ashamed. From my door you can see right thru my kitchen to the dining nook.

  2. Our kitchen tables is a catch-all for things, too, but I try to clean it off every night. Sometimes I forget, though, and it gets to be an awful mess.
