I have emerged victorious in the battle to reclaim my dining room! After tackling the huge pile of paper, I have discovered a beautiful table underneath. I have cleaned out cabinets and drawers in the kitchen, baskets and shelves in the living room, pulled out all the furniture and dusted baseboards, vaccuumed crevices and scrubbed spots out of the carpet. Two large bags of trash, another (and a box) for donation. You know that cabinet you have you never go into? You know, the one that has all those weird vases and dishes that you don't know what to do with. Well, I went into mine, and found a bottle of white grape juice from when I moved in (3 years ago). Ewww. It was brown. Why was it there? I have no idea. I don't keep food in there.
Among other things I found when cleaning? A piece of mail from last December.
How come I never find a forgotten stash of money?
