Pantry cleaning

Yikes! I just spent the last hour or so deep cleaning our big pantry/coat closet (don't ask-I don't like the shared space!)
Things I threw out: 
3 boxes of cereal
2 boxes of granola bars
2 boxes of Cookie Monster alphabet cookies (for the longest time those were the only cookies my son would eat & not everyone sold them ��)
2 boxes of instant breakfast
1 box of confectioners sugar 
2 boxes of brown sugar &
3 jars of jelly-the strawberry was the oldest item found, it expired in 2013. Everything else was between August & December.

Laundry room supplies

I didn't get a before picture but this is what I used to keep my laundry supplies in -
It wasn't too sturdy but I couldn't find anything I liked beside the $600 vanity that I really wanted so it did the job.
I was visiting a friend & she had this little piece of furniture in her garage waiting for the trash so I brought it home.
Besides it being white & matching my laundry room it also fit perfectly behind the door.

This small change has made me so happy �� I still want the $600 vanity but I don't mind waiting.

It is with much sadness I report that we no longer have a royal guard at the hovel. Our big handsome Caine crossed the Rainbow Bridge on April 8th.
As I type I am tearing up but I keep reminding myself that he now has finally met up with our beloved Tasha who crossed the bridge in 2005. We had always said how much we wanted them to meet.
In his honor I am keeping his line in the blog description.(which I just realized is a few years old since he went up to 122 pounds)
