I bought two trolleys, one of which lives in the bathroom, from the charity shop when I very first started there, I think they may have even been my first purchases. You'll have to take my word for this as I accidentally deleted the before photo, but it was in a sorry state this morning, overloaded with all manner of things - bubble wrap, toys that other people had given me to give to my nieces, tea lights, straws, empty bags. The bottom shelf had given up!
The shelf back was popped back in place and the whole thing primped, now it contains what it should. At the top the essentials of life - crisps, chocolate, bread (in the fabric bag) and the medicine box. Middle shelf contains spare dried goods and the bottom holds old newspapers, I use them to line the bunny litter trays - the freebie property paper from the supermarket is particularly good.
Everything else just needed to be dragged out, shelves cleaned, and everything rehoused. I did give some of the shelves a bit of a rejiggle, hopefully it makes sense to Dan, as it's his bread making stuff I've moved.
Lots of space! Since this picture was taken I have drunk the Cherry B (I couldn't find out if it was sfv) and the Vimto, together I call them an Up The Clarets. It goes with my two other football related drinks, The Steaming Clattenburg - Pimms Winter, vodka and hot apple juice, and The Dyche which is Benedictine or Jagermeister with ginger beer. Slight wander away from the topic there.
I did find a couple of things to remove from the house
Mung beans. We've had these for a looooooong time, they just don't agree with me, my belly swells up like a gigantic, pasty beach ball, not pleasant. The tonic water is a leftover from when my brother came to stay, he didn't drink it and it's not been looked at since. The beans are in the bin, I don't know where the tonic water will go.
Despite me being as forceful as I can be without causing a rift, every Christmas I tell my family I don't want presents, every year my SIL ignores me and sends something on behalf of the children. That's fine, but I would rather receive something they'd actually chosen than this (it would be a pair of Minions socks). Don't get me wrong I love benedictine, but it's not vegan. I've mentioned it to her, to my brother and to my mum, but every year the bottle of bene turns up. I think Dan is going to offer it to his friend who has probably never tried it - with him not being from East Lancs and all that. While I'm on the subject - fridge magnets, why do people keep buying fridge magnets for me? I can't stand them (the magnets, not the people).
At the very top live tea and coffee pots, jugs, empty jars. Next one down, noodles, rice and grains plus tins. In the middle tea, herbs, spices, spreads and for some reason onions. Bottom shelf, breakfast stuff, nuts, seeds, dried fruit, oils and vinegars, crackers etc.
The jackfruit remains uneaten.
