clutter is a decision deferred

I've cleaned out the stuff in our living room and kitchen/office area. The bathroom/laundry area is for tomorrow and the bedroom for Friday, with a final push in the basement over the weekend. There was a moment where I asked myself why we still have three bottle openers. And a cheese slicer. We have two DVD players (one multisystem, the other US) and no TV. Heck, we might need all this stuff again if we move overseas.

Even though I did major uncluttering when we left Ouagadougou, and once again when we left Little Rock, I'm surprised that there's still a ton of stuff to give away or trash. MoBob for example has collected a wide variety of different cables and adapters. Not to mention two printers currently residing under the bed. They have been there for a year. Don't ask me why.

I've decided to order from Peapod (Giant) than Safeway from now on. Their website is much easier to navigate, there's more available (I was surprised when I ordered from Safeway last time that spaghetti sauce was not on the website), they accept coupons (Safeway doesn't), and they can leave a delivery unattended (Safeway always requires a signature upon delivery). My only beef is that there seem to be fewer Giant store brands than Safeway items. But overall the total price was about the same, so Peapod it is.

Do you do all your grocery shopping online? This isn't something I've really looked into, so I'm very curious.

We have two DVD players for the same reason (come to think of it, I think we have three...for shame!) We need one to play the movies we bought in China (that we never watch) so we brought home one from there. And don't even get me started on cables. I think they breed when no one is looking!

We don't have a car, and figured that the delivery charge was about the same as metro/bus fare for both of us round trip. So it's more convenient all around. I also find that I don't make any purchases "off the list" since I'm not wandering around the store.

Maybe the printers have offspring by now!
