Alex told me that I should have opened the cabinet doors to show how well I had cleaned those, too. The interiors, not the doors! I actually did clean some of the doors that had been caked in sizing because I always iron in the same spot.
By weight and number the big winner in 'things that were thrown out' was half-used candles. I don't know what I thought I was going to do with all those candles that I had totally forgotten were there.
Note to family: please do not consider this a golden opportunity to buy me more candles.
Note to self: please do not consider this a golden opportunity to buy more trash to store in those shelves.
Query for others: What can I get/do to spruce this place up? It's booooooooooring and beige. Luke and Alex suggested I paint the walls bright orange.
Note to self: Never let Alex and Luke decorate their own room.
