I decided it was time to clean my pantry. I had to. I couldn't get the door to close. I really had to give myself a talking to. "It is time to throw some things away," I told myself. Let me see what can go? The margarine containers! The margarine containers? Now why was I saving margarine containers? Oh, yes, they are nice for leftovers. Then you can just take it to work, heat it up, and throw away the container when you finish eating! So why do I keep bringing them back home and washing them? I call it recycling. No, it is called hoarding! At any rate I have talked myself into throwing way the old margarine containers. One garbage can full of margarine containers later I can close the door. You will never believe what else I threw away. Oh that's right you will believe it, of course you would have thrown it away a long time ago, it is me that can't believe it. I went through the dry goods. Those #10 cans that you get in dry pack. I threw away two cans of fruit drink, one chocolate pudding, one vanilla pudding, raspberry flavored dried apples, and part of a can of macaroni. Why? Old. Really old. Plus Joe can't have the sugar in the drink and the pudding. Now I keep going back to the pantry and opening the door just so I can see it shut again. Wow that is so cool.
Now as I type I am looking at the stack of phone books. Why do I need 5 phone books in the kitchen? It looks like something else needs to go.
