I’ll be the first to admit I have a gadget obsession.Â If you can find any space on my kitchen countertops, you must be in the wrong house.Â I have choppers, toasters, can openers galore, everything you can imagine.Â And I use most of them frequently.Â
However, there are those little gadget guys I never ever use.Â Either they’re too big, can’t find them or I just plain have no use for them.Â But you can’t throw them away, you’ll need them once the garbage pickup has come & gone.Â I know you can empathize with my situation, which is why I am dedicating this post to wasteful gadgets.Â
First off, unless you have a medical condition, who really need help opening a can top, enough to justify this Ring Pull & Jar Opener?Â If I can’t get right under it, I take out my trusty butter knife.Â Wasteful gadget #1.
Let us all unite in that we can live without a Lettuce Keeper.Â I mean, is the refrigerator drawer not enough?Â Do you need to keep your Iceburg for over a week?Â Wasteful gadget #2.
Is sifting really that bad that we have to buy, and try to find room for, a Battery-Operated Sifter.Â I can see possibly getting my granny one for her birthday, though she’s tough as nails and still mows the grass, but I like the Zen of mindless, rhythmic sifting.Â It’s the peace before the storm of baking.Â Wasteful gadget #3.
I know I’ve been harsh on the gadget-loving world, which includes myself, but after looking at the lack of counter space in my kitchen and the overflowing drawers and cabinets, I needed some motivation to kick the habit.Â What about you?
