I am not one to make New Year resolutions; at least out loud. I mean I do think the standard get in shape one but that is daily so that one doesn’t really count. I am not a huge fan of clutter yet it seems to be almost impossible to control. There are SO many things that come into the house that stay for sometimes way longer than they should. I will take full blame for most everything that has to do with the kitchen, cooking, cupboards and pantry.

We’ve been in the house 14 years this week. I went from having barely any storage to having what most would consider a ton. It might have taken me a while but I am now over flowing with “stuff” It might have something to do with me loving theme parties, me writing a weekly food blog, or me just loving glasses, dishes, bowls, serving trays, appliances and gadgets, oh so many gadgets.

I have decided that this will be the year of tackling a drawer, cupboard, room or closet one at a time. I figured that wouldn’t be too difficult. I didn’t give myself a time table, I didn’t tell myself I HAD to do this; I figured it would be best to just do it. So far I have gotten through 5 or 6 cupboards and a portion of my clothes closet. In one cupboard I had a dozen or so margarita glasses??! I don’t even like them; tequila and I broke up well over 20 years ago. So they all; along with many other things went to Goodwill. I now I must make a small confession. After I left goodwill, I immediately drove to Pier One and bought martini glasses ahhhhh Life is Good!
