It’s full steam ahead for our move next week. As our household purging continues, I am reminded that I’m really not that sentimental when it comes to “stuff.” I cannot relate to hoarders. First, I hate clutter. HATE. I’m a minimalist. Second, I try to live by a general rule that my wise Mom once said to me, “If you haven’t used it in two years, you’re not going to.” It’s true.
I do, however, cling to so many of my kitchen appliances which have collected dust, cookbooks I haven’t opened in eons, utensils where their function eludes me, and an apron that I have never worn once.
Got me thinking – if my house caught fire and I only had time to save one item from my kitchen/pantry, what would it be? (Keeping in mind, I could be risking serious injury or death, here.)
It was challenging for me, since I cook almost every night and find ALL my kitchen accessories vital. But, if I had to choose just one thing, it would have to be my nonstick-12 inch-deep sauté pan. I rely on it for 85% of the dishes I make.
Funny thing is, the original owner was Paul. Along with a toothbrush and chair, it was the only other physical item he brought to the relationship when we moved in together. Personally, I think it sealed the deal. The man knows good cookware…even if he did use it as a large paperweight.
What item would you save? It can be anything – spices, a spatula, a chip-clip.
