I came to this realization yesterday as I was trying to find a place to store the deep fryer that I got G.I. Joe for our anniversary.

Which was no small task, since every place that I would normally store a kitchen gadget was already occupied with another gadget.
As I was searching Sasha decided she wanted to count the number of gadgets that I have; I have 11!
Yes, I said "11".
|the electric juicer|
11 gadgets that I am sure I NEEDED when I bought them or that I just HAD TO HAVE when I asked for them for whatever holiday I received the gadget on.
And do I use every single one at least once a week or ,heck, even once a month, NOPE.
|the manual 4 pc grater|
I have gadgets that I did not even know I had and if I did know at one point I sure don't know now.
( know what I am saying :0)
|the baby food maker|
So after seeing how many gadgets that I had I set out to either sell or donate the ones that I really could do with out and keep the ones that I know I will use or that can do double duty.
I did not get very far.

As I was weeding through them I kept thinking about how this gadget works well for this recipe and this one for that recipe and on and on it went. Until I gave up and decided to ask G.I.Joe for his thoughts on which kitchen gadgets he thought we could live without, needless to say he looked at me and went right back to playing the XBox without ever saying a word.
So I still have 11 kitchen gadgets and probably will till one of them finally breaks down, at which time I will either replace it or figure that my life is okay with out having that particular kitchen gadget in it.

|the hand mixer|
|the bread maker and the bread storage container|
|and the ice cream maker|
