Should it Stay or Should it Go?

I need a little help from my readers (if there are any). Last week I removed this cookie jar (left) from my kitchen counters. I was using it to hold kitchen utensils.  It has no lid, so it’s obviously not going to be used as a cookie jar. I shoved it on my hutch because that’s what I do when I don’t know what to do with something. So my question is, do I get rid of this thing? Or is there some brilliant use for this of which I am currently unaware?  Should it stay or should it go? Bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum-bum . . . If it goes there could be trouble. . . if it stays there could be double. . . (okay, got carried away there for minute).  I’d love some input!

This is what I’m attacking this week.

This is my hutch that ends up as the catch-all for whatever I don’t want to deal with right now . . . or whatever I don’t want to walk “all the way upstairs” at the moment.  This is actually one of its better moments.  I de-clutter it frequently, but it inevitably gets cluttered again. I’m creating a system; a “command center” seems to be the latest word for it. Wish me luck!

  1. I vote that you keep it and plant a pretty flower in it.

  2. I like it and think it could have several uses. But, I think it’s perfect to hold utensils and that’s how I would probably use it. lol Sorry I couldn’t be more help. 🙂

  3. Take it to the Goodwill, that way you don’t have to feel guilty about getting rid of it! 🙂

  4. I have a terrible time getting rid of things, but… if you can’t think of some way immediately to use it, then give it to charity. That’s what I would (try) to do. But in truth, it would probably go in my pantry, waiting for that moment of inspiration when I suddenly knew how to creatively use it. Maybe I’m not the best person to give advice about this… 🙂

  5. Probably a wise suggestion. 🙂
