With a pending move in the next few months, it might be time to step it up again with the decluttering. I plan to end today with a stack of cookbooks ready to head out the door. Since I moved my remaining cookbooks onto the shelf in my craft/storage room, I'm realizing how little I actually use them. Having to go into a different room to get the book makes it much more clear how often (or rarely) I'm pulling one out to use. The ones I have on my iPad get used much more often. It's definitely time to thin the physical ones out a lot more. Getting down to just the one bookshelf seems like a real possibility soon! I'm amazed that I started out with an overflowing 6' bookshelf of cookbooks and am down to just 2 of those 5 shelves left and soon will be down to 1.
The bamboo dish drainer that is not the most stable thing to use and holds much less than you'd think... and the plastic tray that goes under it. I like the idea of the bamboo, but hate using it. I've been using the broken dishwasher to drain dishes and it's nice having the extra space for larger items without a need for creative stacking. lol If my next place doesn't have a dishwasher, I'll get a metal rack that will be easier to clean than this.
