Before we moved in, our property was in multiple occupation for much of the time. So, when the sale went through, we were left with two sets of crockery, cutlery etc. and, from our point of view, a shortage of storage space, especially for our kitchen stuff (we are both keen cooks). We were in Ikea yesterday, buying kitchen bits and pieces.
So today we got rid of some of the excess crockery, cutlery, knives, storage jars and assorted bits and pieces. Stuff that, in the UK, we would have taken to the charity shop. Ashley took the first few bits to the bin, where they were eagerly grabbed by our neighbours. Hilary took out a great big cardboard box which was taken by a neighbour to share out. Ashley then took another cardboard box of more kitchen stuff.
It is good that things like this do not go to waste
