21 in 2021, 0/21

This year I’ve made a list of 21 tasks that I want to start AND finish in 2021. I wouldn’t really call them resolutions, because I personally believe that resolutions are about personal growth – but that’s just me; the dictionary definition is simply “a firm decision to do or not to do something.”

Task. Resolution. Potato. Po-tah-toe.

21 in 2021 - a year's worth of half-baked goals. Written and completed in real time. I finally identified my 21 things 🦅 #21in21 #21in2021 #NewYear

I think they’re each pretty self-explanatory, but for the sake of clarity I’ll break down and clarify tasks as this year goes on, so today I’m going to talk about tasks one through four.

  • Donate textiles @H&M
    • I hate throwing ANYTHING away, and recycle all I can. I recycle everything like old sad sheets, worn out washrags, even undies with loose elastic. H&M also takes worn shoes. Sometimes the cashier wants to see the donation, sometimes they direct me to just plop my bag in the bin without inspection.
    • Current items to donate include a batch of Mister Jupiter’s old undershirts, stained onesies, and worn out socks. Just the usual closet consumables (meaning items that are expected to be used and replaced at a high rate).
  • Curate coffee mugs
    • We have a lot of coffee mugs because we like souvenir mugs, and just-plain-silly mugs…but we also kind of hate moving so many mugs.
    • Curating mugs means that I will donate the lesser used mugs, and only keep the ones with big happy memories attached, or other favorites. Right now we have two cabinets full of mugs, but only use one cabinet…so why have two when we only use one?! Adios a dozen mugs!
  • Upgrade shallow bowls
    • A few years ago I donated our mismatched black dishes and replaced them with plain white IKEA dishes. The plates and soup bowls are great, but the shallow bowls (that we use the most) are full of grey scratches from repeated use.
    • We make a lot of gourmet meals and send the photos to friends, but the scratches are distracting. So I want to replace them with a different brand of plain white shallow bowl to improve our food photos. Our friends don’t care. But I care, so I’m replacing them.
  • Donate to Free Little Pantries, local ◻︎◻︎◻︎◻︎◻︎◻︎◻︎◻︎
    • You know those “Little Free Libraries?” Well, Little Free Pantries exist too. The town I live in has a small network (eight of their own, not including local church pantries). Pandemic or not – the Jupiter House is fortunate and we know it, so every other grocery order I add extra pantry goods for the local LFPs. This year I will donate goods to each pantry instead of just one or two.
    • I generally like to donate things like Ensure (you never know who has issues swallowing or chewing), plus soap, or cooking essentials like oil and dry beans.

That’s all for today! I’ll be back when I have made some progress. See you soon I hope.

Menu planning with limitations is getting more common with random food scarcity, or tighter budgets. Here's how I manage unpredictable grocery shopping. #COVID-19 #menuplanning  Picks of the Week, № 5. These are our military picks. Gotta stay caffeinated. #Nespresso #FiveFaves #PicksoftheWeek  Picks of the Week, № 44 is a collection of the toddler's recent favorites. He'll be two soon, so if you have a similar-aged young person, you'll recognize these picks! #picksoftheweek #ladyjupiter #toddlers #boymom
