We were cleaning out the kitchen cabinet, and realized that we have 2 or more of a lot of things that we don’t need 2 or more of.
I don’t see everything we own so I think we don’t have what we need so then we buy whatever it is again, and then we don’t realize what we’ve done until we go through things again!
– 3 containers of counter wipes
– 3 bottles of dish soap
– 2 bottles of hand soap
– 2 massive sponges
– 2 bottles of toilet bowl cleaner
– 2 bottles of multi-purpose non-toxic concentrate cleaner
– 2 containers of wood floor solution
Morale of the story: clean out the cabinets more often, keep similar items together so you can easily see what you have, look in your cabinets before you before you buy, remember what you own, keep in mind that you tend to forget what you have (talking to myself).

This has happened to me before. Thanks for the reminder.
Excellent advice. I tend to do this with art supplies. My new mantra is use what I have first!
This is a good input. I find myself guilty.
I actually thought I had extra dish soap and ran out last night XD
