How many slotted spoons does a kitchen really need? Not too long ago, I went through my kitchen and got rid a bunch of ‘clutter’. Apparently, I didn’t take a critical enough look at my kitchen utensils. I pulled everything out this morning, and boom…I have 5 different slotted spoons. I can not think of a time when I would actually have a need for all 5 of these spoons.
Instead of looking at these utensils and thinking about what I have to get rid of, I thought about which utensils I would like to keep. I looked at them and decided which ones had been used recently. Those are the ones I kept. Then, deciding what to get rid of was a not hard at all.
Forget about the ‘what if’ and the ‘just in case’. If you haven’t used it in the past year, odds are that once you get rid of it, you will never miss it.
