Domestic Decluttering : Week 7 of 52 -- Decluttering Pots and Pans

Boy, it’s been years since I looked through my pots and pans/overflow utensil cabinet! Took everything out and spread it on a towel on the floor.

How did all the stuff in the photo above fit inside?

I keep utensils in this drawer that I need, but aren’t used every day.

Had a lot of duplicate and triplicate utensils, though  — I think most of them were from hosting my son’s wedding a few years ago and from a short-lived barbecue phase.

I had pots without lids and lids without pots.

But the crux of the problem was  an enormous blue speckled kettle I bought years ago at Goodwill that took up a lot of room.  What was I thinking?! That I’d cook for a football team?

Because the kettle forced me to cram everything else in the cabinet, it made getting the crockpot from the shelf above it a precarious experience — and it made the whole cabinet very, very junky.

Because I removed the kettle and quite a few other things, the cabinet doors that wouldn’t quiiiiitttte close (see above) at the beginning are now neatly closed  — and everything inside is lookin’ good!
