Kathleen is thinking of painting that table white, what do you think?
Thankfully Fall has finally come to LA. The air is crisper, the days shorter, and the urge to nest is fierce. This week we're in the Kitchen doing a deep clean to jumpstart our new, healthier apartments. Since this Cure is full of collectors, we will no doubt fbe finding ourselves amidst a lot of stuff in the kitchen. So remember as you try to whittle it all down:
Do I use it? Do I love it? Does my apartment need it?
Your aim here is to end up with one matching set of dishes that you use (that you love!). If you need to finish out a set, note that on your repair worksheet.
So don't be afraid to toss/recycle/donate:
• Any food that is expired or unused for more than a year
• Cups, glasses or dishes that are chipped, stained, unmatching, extra or unused.
• Cookware, tupperware or contraptions that don't get used (that breadmaker seemed like such a good idea at the time, but now it's eating up counter/cabinet space).
If there are things you're uncertain about, put them in your outbox: this is where items get to rest while you work on the kitchen. You don't have to throw it away, just put it in your outbox. You'll revisit it later.
