      Out: very large suitcase that would not fit in the small closets in the new apartment. Sold it on CL for really cheap just to get it out of my hair.

      In: two deck chairs for our new balcony. I haven’t had outdoor space in 10 years so I’m excited about this new apartment’s balcony. I could have lived without the chairs but they were relatively cheap.
      Out: lots of flatted boxes to recycling

      Out today: a couple of old college notebooks and flash cards. For some reason it is hard for me to let old homework go because it took so much time and effort.

      Sold a white dry erase board on CL. I got it from an ex and didn’t need it anymore. CL is great to get rid of stuff… if only buyers showed up on time. Oh well.

      Sold an coffee table on CL. It was super heavy so it couldn’t move with us.
      Also out to donation: white ribbon from our wedding and sunglasses that were a little dated.

      Gave away a creme brulee torch to a friend. I’ve had it for 6 years and never used it. I don’t even have the creme brulee dishes anymore. She seemed excited to receive it. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Unexpectedly sold a broken dresser on CL. A couple came over to see the nice one that I had listed but they saw the broken one and said that they preferred it. I was going to let them have it for free but they insisted on giving me a 10 bucks. Life is strange sometimes.

      Out to donation: extra ice cube trays bought for a party 4 years ago and a plastic pitcher. We have two nice glass pitchers that always get used instead.

      Dish sponges/cloths

      @snosie washing the sponge in the dishwasher works. It definitely gets rid of the smell but only works once or twice.
      However the key to keeping sponges clean for a long time is to put soap directly on the sponge when you use it and squeeze it out when you are done. Before we married, my husband didn’t have a dishwasher and he would always comment that my sponges smelled (can you believe that we had this conversation?).
      He taught be those two tips: put soap directly on the sponge and make sure it is dry as possible when you are done.

      Brought to work today: box of popcorn packets (given as a gift) that I didn’t like but I thought that maybe some co-workers would. I also took in a lot of legal pads that I bought as a mega-pack from Sams ages ago. They will actually get used there. ๐Ÿ˜›

      Dish sponges/cloths

      I use sponges but I cut each one in half. I realized you don’t really need the whole sponge and it makes them last twice as long. I tend to wash them in the dishwasher when I feel like they need to be clean and when they are beyond saving, they get used to wash the showers. ๐Ÿ™‚

      Sold a small side table on casters that I bought for college 10 years ago from Ikea. I think I got good use out of it, but there was no real reason to move it across the country.

      Out today: two ill-fitting shirts that were in the maybe pile for months. I tried them on again today and decided they weren’t worth keeping.
