The Heart of the Home

Any time we have people over, they always congregate in the kitchen.  It seems appropriate that the kitchen is where we have spent the most money renovating as well.  Since we are having Thanksgiving at our house this year (for the first time!), I decided to make the kitchen my next room to declutter.

I am getting rid of quite a lot, but we love to entertain so there was a lot to begin with.  Here’s a run down of what I’m keeping:

12 place settings of everyday dishes
Ninja Blender/Food Processor + accessories (LOVE this so much – I even used it today!)
KitchenAid stand mixer
Small hand mixer
Waffle iron (We use this every month to make a giant batch of waffles to freeze)
Large serving bowls
Large serving platters
Bread basket
Corningware Set
Pyrex Set
Baking pans (muffin pan, cake pan, etc.)
Silicone muffin liners
Silpat baking mat
Food scale
Rolling Pin
Misc utensils (can opener, spatula, pizza cutter, etc)
Chef knives
Coffee mugs (way too many, but my husband is attached to them)
Everyday drinking glasses
Bottle opener (CRUCIAL!)
Glasses for alcohol (red wine glasses, champagne glasses, beer glasses, etc)
Martini shaker
Fine china
2 travel mugs
Large beverage container
Salad bowl
Lidded cake caddy
Mixing bowls
Cutting board
Glasslock containers (for weekly meal prep)

It still seems like a LOT, but this is just the first pass.  I’m selling a few items (I’m looking at you, fondue set) on craigslist in hopes that I can make a little bit of money before the holidays.  I could probably let go of lots of our glasses and such, but I feel so fancy drinking from a wine glass instead of just any old glass 🙂 Perhaps I’ll do another decluttering session before we move, but this is a good start for now.
