Today I dropped my kids off at school and came home, rolled up my pajama sleeves and got busy! I pulled out a big trash can and started in the pantry. Next I moved to the famous "junk drawer" and my goodness, junk it was! I didn't even think twice, just kept filling up the trash can. Next on to the junk-drawer-overflow-drawer! Come on, seriously? Then onto the two utensil drawe … [Read more...] about Time to Go!
