Since we’ve decluttered our bookshelves yesterday, I thought we could move to an area we may have missed while reviewing our books. That my friends, is the cookbook section of our house!
I don’t know about you, but I still have a few cookbooks hanging around. Some were given to me as gifts. Others were hand me downs when I got married. I’ve even bought a few.
But, here’s the thing.
I look up most recipes online.
Now that’s not to say I’ve never looked through my cookbooks to make a recipe. But it’s rare for sure.
Last week I finally came to grips with the fact that I barely use cookbooks and they’re just taking up space. I put all but 2 in the yardsale pile and moved them to a hidden cabinet in my kitchen.
The best part is we now have an entire empty shelf! My kids are going to be the lucky recipients of that shelf because the’ll be able to put a basket of toys to play with downstairs. They’ll be happy to play. I’ll be happy that the toys are contained when not in use!
Again, declutter cookbooks. Take a look through your cookbooks today and see if there are any you can pass on.
I’d love to see what you declutter today. Upload a pic to instagram and tag me in it (instagram.com/idreamofclean) so I can see!
Your assignment for today:
- Continue working on habit #3.
- Sell, donate, or give away at least one cookbook.
- Keep working on your cleaning schedule.
