First Tally for December

will be posted below and then moved to the tally page. Despite the fact that we’re cleaning & culling daily, the numbers are still really small, or fairly small anyway.

In the first 5 days of this month, I’ve managed this:

2 toilet brushes, “moonsuit”, needle threader, 1 turtleneck, oil bottle, 6 rags 12
sponge, slide box, 2 owner’s manuals, 2 spice bottles, broken ruler, 7
space filler for between appliance & counter 1
