I am on a constant mission to declutter the house. I would really like to pare down everything by about half. Last night I worked on my cookbooks. I told myself that I could only keep half of them. After all, how many cookbooks do you need that you don't use? Besides, I look up a lot of recipes online rather than searching for them in the cookbook. I didn't take any before pictures, but here are the after pictures.

This is the box that is going...this is the new and improved cookbook cupboard. There is no need to worry. I will not be running out of recipes anytime soon!Here is what I have gotten rid of today. It will be an ongoing list as I get rid of more stuff.

- 10 t-shirts
-pair of sweatpants
-2 sweaters
-4 dress shirts
-a pant suit outfit
- a hands free computer speaker thingy
-an Elmo little tin lunchbox thing

Oh come on, just get a bigger cookbook shelf...have you seen mine lately, I know you have! But i don't even own 10 tee shirts so I guess it equals out.
