Keeping with the theme of the kitchen, let’s take some time to declutter kitchen gadgets. You know, the cotton candy maker, the quesadilla cooker and pretty much anything with the word “magic” in its name.
All these items eat up precious storage space in your kitchen. So today, we give you permission to tell your inner Martha Stewart to shove it, and get rid of any gadget that you secretly think is useless.
Maybe it’s the As-Seen-On-TV item that never worked as advertised. Or the Wilton Cake decorating kit you bought before you failed Cake Decorating 101. Evaluate anything you haven’t used (or enjoyed using) in the past six months. We just finished Christmas, Thanksgiving, and Labor Day: If you didn’t use it during those Celebrations of Eating, when will you?
Not all gadgets are bad, but it’s up to you to decide which ones make sense in your life. The rice cooker gets used three times a week in our house, so I’m going to keep it even though many people would say it’s a waste of space.
Now the egg slicer on the other hand…that might be negotiable.
