Are you guilty of buying
Useless Kitchen Gadgets??
I have discovered in life that there are many things we don’t need. I once heard that the Dalai Lama said he only has 13 possessions. (I have that in odd socks alone) So we decided here at the Temple that we’d have a clean out, or at least review for you, totally useless things that should be removed from all homes.
If you are guilty of buying any of the items we post about, please give yourself a little slap on the hand and sit quietly in the corner for five as you think about why you did this.
We also encourage our followers to pause before their purchases, mainly of the kitchen kind and ask yourself, do I really need that. This relates specifically to items such as a doughnut maker, crepe maker or any other maker that will lead to unhealthy eating or that resembles another kitchen item but has renamed/packaged to be branded another. (eg. a cheese slicer, we believe a knife will do the same thing)
If you go through with your purchase, ignoring our advice, we ask one thing; if you find you don’t use it for an extended period, donate the purchase price to a charity to redeem your silly mistake.
Here is a quick list of things we have come up in a quick five-minute session.
- Asparagus steamer/boiler. Asparagus really don’t mind lying horizontal in a pot, we asked and they’re fine with it.
- Those little travel knives and forks that dismantle in half: Umm did they take up that much room anyway?
- Wine bottle necklaces: Wine looks pretty already and doesn’t need any bling to make it more appealing.
- Wine glass ID jewels: Who cares who’s glass your drinking? If it’s near or full it’s mine. Besides, I can always tell which one is mine as it’s either in my hand full, or at the end of my outstretched arm awaiting a refill or in a random spot (most likely the washing machine. I put it there when I used the toilet) with my reddy/orange lipstick smudged all over it.
Please let us know of any other useless items we can avoid.
Ommmm from the Temple.
