Declutter Update (Update #4)

oh yes, you're reading that right.  i finally got to the kitchen declutter.  i mean, i only started this project in october, but still.  the kitchen kept getting pushed to the bottom of the list.  i know a lot of my kitchen things (namely related to baking and hosting parties) are in a box in my mom's attic that i desperately need to go through.  but for today, this was a big project that i'm happy to have crossed off my list.

48% (i definitely used 'sets' this time as opposed to individual item counts, but i think i did it fairly in the count)

good lord, kitchen stuff adds up fast.  i really think i got rid of a lot, but there's still that much more?  and more things at my parents' house?  i didn't even think i cooked that much!  what do you think anything else i could get rid of?  is your kitchen stash bigger or smaller?

only 2 more areas to get done, exciting!
