I've lived here in this little flat for 15 months now.
Before I moved, I cleared out lots of stuff that I knew wouldn't fit and stuff I thought I'd probably never need or use again.
When I unpacked here and found I still had too much stuff, I sent a few extra garbage bag loads to the nearest Goodwill type place.
Now I need to go through some cupboards and do it all again.
There are things in the back corners of cupboards, stuff in the top-of-wardrobe section, bits and pieces in the cabinet under the bathroom sink that I haven't even looked at the whole time I've been here.
Like the half dozen bath towels that I never use because I prefer the larger bath sheet sized towels.
The sheets that are worn in the middle and I was keeping to use as cleaning rags, but really, how many rags does one person need?
The big and medium sized frypans.
I cook for one now, so bought a small frypan and that's all I need.
I can ignore packets of dried foods, because they'll keep and eventually get used (pasta, rice, custard powder), but I'll check everything else in the kitchen cupboard that I call a pantry.
I started last weekend by tossing spices that I knew were at least 5 years old and I hadn't used them at all apart from the one or two teaspoons needed when I tried a new recipe.
Recipe wasn't something I liked enough to make again, so the spices got shoved into the cupboard and left there.
Now they're gone.
I should probably cull my t-shirts too.
And all those Cheap-as Chips bedsocks that are all stretched out.
Oooh! This is going to be fun.
