Kitchen drawers....

One of my favorite sayings is "Have space, will fill."

One day this week...I decided to clear/clean out my kitchen drawers. They looked organized enough...but ugh.  I even brought my Dyson vacuum in to do the sucking once the drawers were empty.

How many cheese cutters/knives/slicers do I need? Maybe one. I have about 5.

How about those melon-ballers? I had 2. Buh bye.

I don't know why I have a baby-sized rolling pin (was it my daughter's)?

Oh, and I have a butter slicer ---- so every slice looks identical. Toss it.

I don't have a clue what the flat wooden thing is that has 4 holes (various widths) in it.

When did I last use an ice-cube picker-upper? How dainty....these days I just shove my cup/glass under the icemaker.

How many bottle openers do I need...especially those that have advertisments on them? Nada. Don't all bottle tops twist off these days by hand?

I'm keeping the yellow plastic thing that assists me in scooping out honey that my neighbor gives me by the jar.....yummy!  But last year I couldn't find it and so I just used a spoon. It's so cool that he harvests honey and shares it with us!

I'm keeping the plastic tops for my seltzer/soda bottles to keep the carbonation in them.

How about the apple slices and cores at the same time. I guess you put it over the apple...push down....and woosh! Sliced apples.

I have a mechanical peeler/slicer/corer somewhere in the kitchen. I got rid of our apple tree once it started tearing up the carriage house (Carl's shop) floor. Bad tree....but good apples for cooking, but not for eating raw.

And yes, of course, there's the 'Coupon Cutter'...that combination ruler and newspaper coupon ripper. Who keeps/tears out ads these days? I did, until BBB (Bed Bath & Beyond) stopped mailing me their coupons. Now I get them online.

I showed my friend this stuff yesterday....and I think he took one thing. It's a new world out there. And I'm attempting to fit into it.

Live richly, marilyn
