Yesterday I found that some things from the 'let go' box made their way back into my cool uncluttered kitchen drawer - a couple of twisty straws which are almost impossible to clean. They are gone as of this morning.
Other things made their way into the bathroom to be used as "cooking show" utensils while she took her playing in the bathtub baths.
And finally, the husband didn't think one's kitchen would be complete without metal tongs.
I'll keep working on it.
