Ok, so I counted and I have 18 boxes of kitchen stuff. Now, this does not include the 10 + boxes I already packed before we even put the house on the market and are in storage at Ben's parents house, and I will still need to pack about 4 more boxes before the move on Monday. That will make roughly 32 boxes of kitchen stuff! Does that seem insane to anybody else? I realized the kitchen boxes were getting out of control, but there was nothing I could do to stop it. I saw the egg separater that I have NEVER used, and thought, "do I really need to pack this?" And then I panicked and thought to myself, "of course I do! What if someday I become the type of chef that is in desparate need of an egg separater on a regular basis? What a waste it would be to throw such a wonderful instrument away!" And so, alas, I am left with at least 32 boxes of kitchen "essentials" to pack, haul, move, unpack, place in a drawer at my new house, and waste away never to be used- just the same as it is not used here.
So here is the question: What useless piece of equipment do you have in your kitchen that you cannot part with, but you really probably should?
