Today I was going to attack this closet that's been at the back of my mind ever since I started this project. Most importantly, it's my videography equipment closet, but it also contains a lot of other things: various folders and boxes full of God knows what, my guitar, a file cabinet full of outdated files, and so much more.
I don't want to go in there.
Today I was going to.
But then Quinn asked me to make cookies and I sort of wanted to do that anyway because I was taking dinner to someone this evening and wanted to add some yumminess (oatmeal and M&M cookies definitely fit that bill).
While in the middle of that process, I found my Secondary Utensils Drawer:
I had originally repurposed this drawer during a decluttering frenzy last fall that was really more of a reorganizational frenzy.
At that time I put all the utensils I didn't use very often in this drawer. (Hence "Secondary Utensils.") When I found this drawer today, I realized that I could actually junk a bunch of this stuff.
Quinn took liquid antibiotics for the first several months of his life, so every two weeks I would go refill his prescription and get another syringe with which to shoot it down his little newborn throat. I kept a couple because they can be useful, but I got rid of eight of them today. I also got rid of three of the little dosage cups that come with medicine.
I don't sift flour, so I got rid of my sifter (that is what that is, right?). We had two knife sharpeners, so I got rid of one. I tossed the storage compartment for my blender, because the blender lives in the drawer and doesn't need a storage compartment. And a couple assorted other things.
Here's my drawer now:
It will quickly regress to look like the photo at the top, but at least it will have less stuff.

Oh! Oh! I put the dinner I took to my friend in a cloth bag and told her she could keep it. So...
