Simplified 365: The Kitchen - Day 24: Appliances & Gadgets

Simplified 365 - Day 24: Appliances & Gadgets

Appliances and kitchen gadgets are one of the hardest things to sort through, but I have faith in you. 

We are on a hunt for the unloved, unused and single tasking appliances and kitchen tools. 

Do you have a panini maker you’ve only used once since your wedding?  Or the immersion blender that you’ve used 3 times, but then purchased a Vitamix? Or maybe you use the immersion blender every morning when you make smoothies? 

The point here is to make 3 piles.  Use weekly, use yearly for holidays, use never. 

I think you know what to do with the “use never”.  Into a donate bag they go! The use weeklies go back from whence they came; we will organize them soon.  The use yearly: I want you to think about them, think about whether or not there is another item that could do the same task, and whether using it once a year is worth the space it takes up in your kitchen.  If you have a kitchen with plenty of space, fine; but if not, maybe you could borrow a similar gadget from family or friends that one time a year you need it.  

If you need a little inspiration, search for:

  • Blenders
  • Juicers
  • Mixers
  • Hand mixers
  • Immersion blenders
  • Panini makers
  • Electric sandwich makers
  • Waffle irons
  • Toasters
  • Coffee makers
  • Countertop grills
  • Dehydrators
  • Spiralizers
  • Cherry pitters
  • Melon-ball makers
  • Pizza cutters
  • Bottle openers
  • Garlic presses

Basically anything electric or non-electric that you may not be using.
