I managed to do two more cupboards, one large one with double doors above, and one half size with a single door below. I have one cupboard and a drawer "calling" to me and I expect to tackle it soon.
My head is stuffed up right now, which is affecting my energy ... and my enthusiasm, but I'm ready for another spurt! It feels good to get fierce about stuff ... and to revel in its disposition. If it leaves the house, yeah!

I did manage to clean out two large cupboards the other evening that would basically be called a pantry. Two shelves in each, at least 2 1/2 feet deep and at least 4 feet wide. These cupboards are under a counter about 9-10 feet long. I'm guessing. I'm not at home right now where I can go measure. You get the idea. I decided to find out what I actually had in there, throw away anything too old and unacceptable, organize them, and make a list to pin inside the doors on each side as to what is in there. The shelves are so deep I don't like everything pushed to the back if I can help it. Things disappear in there.
I was amazed to find I had 4 cans of crushed pineapple, 2 cans of chunk pineapple, 1 can of sliced pineapple, 3 small cans of pineapple juice ... 6 jars of spaghetti sauce ... 3 cans of pizza sauce ... 12 or so cans of tomatoes and tomato sauce, assorted styles ... etc., etc. You get the idea.
I still have to transfer my scribblings into a useful list form for the doors. I wrote down everything I put back in the cupboards and on which shelf. Pat myself on the back!
I intend to use up all the ingredients in my cupboards!
Because those cupboards look so good, I'm feeling a strong urge to work on one of the cupboards above this area and one of the drawers.
A wee bit of progress.

Stone, Stones, Stones
Letting go, letting go, letting go.
And when I finish this inital pass, I'll go through the titles again. Maybe I can make a molehill out of the mountain. It looks like it will still be plenty big ... I certainly won't be deprived of reading material, but maybe it won't be so ... over the top.
