    No, it don't if you think back what My wife and I went through when her Father passed! 4 @ 20 yard dumpsters and 5 weeks of house clean out! I feel the same way Molly!!! ;) It cost us nearly $1700.00 just in dumping fees. :eek:

    Yikes! And it was probably stuff that he had an emotional attachment to. But getting rid of stuff doesn't have to mean getting rid of memories. Hoarding and burning wood is good therapy, into the stove it goes, bye bye and thank you very much!

    A guy replied to an ad I put on. I messaged him back. He said I'll take it! We met 10 minutes later.

    Not really in some cases! I'm not exaggerating when I say they saved "EVERYTHING" ! they were folks from the depression era. Her Mother must have had 2000 Parkay, promise, and Bluebonet butter containers in the basement. They were old farm folks and froze stuff in those. I trew away 12+ "Full" boxes of butter containers and 4 lid boxes!!! They had a Freezer as big as a 1955 Buick and as old! "And still worked fine"!!! We gave away about 5000 mason jars. She had many "Thousands" of paper shopping bags, they saved every box things came in since WWII. I threw away about 700 + bottles of dried up spices. Molly, I could go on and on but you get the idea!o_O

    Yup, I've seen that also. Guess that's why I'm somewhat of a saver, too. Just a novice compared to them, though!

    I also forgot to mention in my above statement My wifes Mother "Bless her" must have had enough "paper clips" to build a Destroyer! :confused:o_O Now, to play devils advocate here, she had her own small hair salon for 55 years but we found cancelled checks back from 1965 to present, about 900 Million rubber bands and maybe 17,000 bread twist ties:faint:. After they passed, My wifes Brother Rummaged through the house before she got there and "WE KNOW" she had about $10,000 in cash in shoe boxes. "All Gone" and couldn't prove a thing! :headbang::mad::headbang::mad: When confronted about it, he said... "Quote" What money? :mad::mad::mad: I wanted to kick his @$$ so bad but cooler heads prevailed, (and it wasn't mine).... :headbang:

    Just read through 87 pages and about 4 years worth of collections growing!

    Lots of good stuff in here.

    A question I have that I didn't see specifically answered. Should i care about a little rust on the underside of the pan?

    I have two Lodge pans that are about 6 months old. Near daily use. The undersides are rusty. Should I do a maintenace program on them or let them be? The cooking surfaces are nice. Eggs slide right off.

    My BIL got me Lodge seasoning spray and the chain scrubby thingy like in this pic from an outlet in Tennessee.
    The scrubber works better than I expected, but the seasoning spray is just a pricey gimmick.
    Its the same ingredients as Pam cooking spray (canola oil) but without the aerosol. And the pump/spray pattern is less than ideal!! (notice the nozzle points up? yeah, I sprayed the back of the stove, twice!)

    Yup, that's what I've been using for years now, plain old pam. When I do my first coat I use crisco in the oven or grill between 375º and 400º for an hour.

    So you reheat the skillet after cleaning and a quick spritz of Pam?
    Thats what I've found works the best. It dries and spreads the oil thin...

    When I take a pan down to "Bare" Iron, I first coat it with Crisco and cook it off for an hour as above. Then Pam all the time after.
