REALLY early spring cleaning

It's 8 degrees out and I started spring cleaning last week. I don't like to spring clean in the spring. That's when I want to be working in the garden or playing with cement and broken ceramics in my little outside sculpture corner! I promised myself that after New Years, I would get organized and start getting rid of crap that I haven't used in ages (or ever), room by room. I've been pretty good about it so far. I went to Home Depot and bought a bunch of plastic tubs in different sizes. I finished the laundry room and the bathroom. How the hell did I wind up with 20+ kinds of body lotion? I don't think I've EVER bought any... Much to dispose of in there!
I organized my sewing studio (formerly known as a dining room). Oddly, there was nothing to get rid of in there...hmmm.
Then I started in the kitchen -- ugh. Five big bags gone and a bunch of stuff to Freecycle. But now I'm stalled. I found these. I am officially sidetracked!

Cookie cutters

Gift from a friend...6-7 years ago

Never used -- not even once

Over 100 of them...what to do, what to do?

Bake cookies? Nah, I don't think so. I've been wanting to try discharging fabric and I picked up some Soft Scrub, regular and gel type, with bleach a while back. I found some old black sheets when I was working on the laundry room. I think they're cotton. I could cut them into FQs and play with the bleach and cookie cutters... Hey, it's too early for spring cleaning anyway!
