Here are twelve items from my home that I have hung onto for years, that I have finally gotten out of my life!
How long owned? 15 years Times used? 1 I got this at a Pampered Chef party. Why did I keep it if we never used it? Because it's Pampered Chef!
How long owned? 20 years Times used? 5. I got this when we first started homeschooling 20 years ago. I thought it was such a great idea to make my own games to reinforce what we were learning. I think I made 5 games with it.
How long owned? 10 years Times used? 0 My mother-in-law gave these to me around the same time. She is an amazing quitlter and I wanted to learn to quilt. She did help me get started, and she and I made some cute quilted pillows together, but I never used these books. I kept them because, well, she gave them to me.
How long owned? 11 years I did get a lot of use out of this book. But since my Kitchen Aid mixer broke 4 years ago, I use new recipies for things like pizza dough, and I no longer need this.
How long owned? collected throughout the years Why do I need so many tubes of cortizone???? I tried to remember the last time we used this, I think Sophie needed it once last summer. I kept one, and threw out the rest.
How long owned? 7 years Times used? 0 I was given this in a box of science paraphernalia. I thought Christian might need it for an experiment. Nope, he's never used it.
How long owned? 8 years Times used? 0 I bought a few of these, I used one, and this has sat in a drawer since.
How Long owned? 17 years These books have meant a lot to me. I have read them both twice. "Confessions of an Organized Homemaker" was the first home organizing book I bought in 2000. And "Sink Reflections" was purchased in 2006. It's time to pass them on.
How Long owned? 16 years Times used? not many I got this when my oldest was in 3rd or 4th grade. I thought it was the coolest! But realistically, my kid's preferred other ways for learning the times tables.
How long owned? 27 years Times used? not many I think I bought this the first year I was married. Sure I used it some throughout the years, but mostly it stayed under my kitchen sink, shoved in the back behind the cleaning supplies and bags. I certainly haven't used it in the last 5 years. I thought everyone had to have one of these, even though I water my one plant under the faucet!
How long owned? 20 years I love these math blocks! I got them out of my favorite homeschooling catalog. I wanted to keep them for when I have grandkids someday! But they are missing some pieces, and my someday grandchildren can play with other things.
