I've also gotten rid of at least 90% of the spider webs that have accumulated over the years... we don't use the basement except for one little corner to do laundry in. After having vacuumed up a good deal of the chipped paint from the floor (maybe 40%) and gotten rid of most of the webs from everywhere else it already looks kind of cozy; okay, that's a stretch, but comparatively I think I can say "kind of" cozy.
I thought I'd share with you some of the most interesting of my basement discoveries today. Again, for any new comers, my husband and I purchased his grandparent's house when they passed. The family took the things they wanted and left everything they did not.
This little guy is rusty as can be but I think it's splendid. It's probably something that will continue to live in my basement pantry for a very long time just because I love it.
I've never heard of nor seen a "frozen food box." This package is honestly completely full of the things. It's one of those odd finds that just leaves you feeling like you've stepped back in history for a moment, you know, before Ziploc. I don't feel like throwing these out but I certainly don't know what to do with them.
This has probably got some value in it. I'll try and sell it on Etsy as soon as I can figure out how to calculate shipping... there are just some things that seem too complicated.
In other very non-interesting news I ended up getting a few groceries today. Tomorrow will be a no spend. I used my $10 store reward and spent $3.35 out of pocket, stuck to my list, and only went $1.15 over what I'd hoped to spend.
Average daily spending for 2015: $16.35
