In an effort to simplify my life and create space, I’ve been systematically removing things from my house. Today I focused on a couple drawers in my kitchen. What did I find?
One peeler that I never use,
another peeler that I use if I can’t find the one I really like,
and then there’s the peeler that I use and like (the one with the blade that swivels).
Three! So today, two peelers went to goodwill along with a box of other miscellaneous things that I don’t use or don’t need. I was keeping two peelers just in case they were needed (large peeling party?), when in truth I only need one peeler.
Having more than I need clutters up my kitchen, my house, and my mind.
Are there things that you’re holding onto just in case they’re needed?
