Inadvertent Decluttering

My mother dropped my glass double walled loose leaf tea mug on a large glass jar, shattering both into a hundred pieces. There was glass everywhere.

While I liked the mug and used it fairly often, I suppose it’s one less thing in our house. This was actually the second glass┬ádouble walled loose leaf tea mug of mine. I had bought this one to replace the one I dropped and broke the last year. Fortunately, only the inside glass part broke then, making the clean up much easier than this time.

Considering the fragility of these mugs, I don’t think I’ll get a replacement. I can just pour the loose leaf tea through one of our various strainers/sieves or use the several disposable loose leaf tea bags we have lying around the kitchen.

I’ve got to say that this type of inadvertent decluttering is very refreshing. I didn’t have to make any decisions about whether to keep or get rid of something and with no effort on my part, there are now two fewer items in our kitchen.

Collectible Cereal Boxes?


I found some cereal boxes from the 1990s in our basement.

Yup, it’s that bad. We have kept cereal boxes for 15 years. Sigh.

These lovely varieties feature Tiger Woods (when he was still wholesome enough for Wheaties), Shae-Lynn Bourne and Victor Kraatz, and Eric Lindros (it looks like it’s signed, but it’s not a real signature).

Well, that’s three more items for the recycling bin.
