Yesterday I stopped by DSW (shoe store) and browsed the clearance section for a satchel I've been wanting to use. I found a better design than the one I was using that is modestly priced, and found one pair of loafers that are the type that instantly feel good on your feet. Since I'm not in the near future dressing up to go to the office I have some shoes I no longer need. They either looked better than they fit or had a slick sole. So I brought home one pair and I put one pair of boots and one pair of loafers in the donate bin, another pair of worn-out loafers in the trash, and I still have plenty of shoes, but they're only the most comfortable ones. And the DSW shopping bag is now in the laundry room with the donation stuff loaded in it.
Susan, you can scale up the size of the container for cleaning tarnished silver. I can put the aluminum pan in a large plastic dishpan and fill the whole thing with hot water and Calgon - and then put the silver in. But it doesn't leave it as shiny as the TarnX, it does need a polishing rag still.
Lovely weather today, but we had a hard and fast thunderstorm race through at 7am so the lawn is fairly damp. I may mow in the late afternoon. This is my weekend for taking down limbs for bulky waste, and I have a book to finish for book club on Monday. So I'd better stop playing on the computer!
