Day Fifteen - Spring 30 Day Clutter Buster Challenge
Today is the half way mark in our 30 Day Clutter Buster Challenge! Give yourselves a huge pat on the back because you have all been doing a wonderful job!
Today after you declutter something I want you to do something just for you to celebrate. Curl up with your favourite book or magazine, watch a favourite movie, give yourself a manicure, or even take a piece of freshly baked banana bread to your daughter (this one's for my mom!). You deserve it!
Today this is what I got rid of.
This is a coffee percolator. It's the kind that has a basket on the top to hold the grounds and then sits on the stove to brew. I think I bought it because it brought back memories of my beloved grandmother. She had a glass one that she would brew coffee in on the back burner of the stove. Whenever anyone visited Grandma she always offered a hot cup of coffee and a seat at the kitchen table to chat.
But I've discovered that I just can't brew coffee like Grandma could (not that I ever had any of Grandma's coffee but everyone else seemed to like it). I went back to using a regular, electric percolator and this has sat in my cupboard for a long time. It's time to let it go even though I smile and remember Grandma every time I see it.
What did you declutter today? And what are you doing today that is just for you? Don't forget to reward yourself!
p.s. I mentioned that my youngest P was in a cooking competition yesterday. He won and now goes on to provincials! I am one proud mama!
