The time has come to purge "stuff" from the kitchen and the workshop. Oops! This is when the rubber meets the road.
I have a drawer of small "essential?" kitchen gadgets. Which ones do I keep and which ones to I discard? What goes? What is donated? What hits the trash?
How did pioneer women make to with only sharp knives, spoons and large forks for turning meat? Did they just have one knife? I have more than 10! How did they live without potato mashers, and ricers? How could they live without measuring cups and spoons? egg separators? egg slicers? egg poachers? potato peelers?, cheese graters? lemon /orange zesters? garlic presses? cheese slicers in various sizes for various thicknesses of cheese? whisks? can openers? melon ball makers? olive pitters? cherry pitters? splatter screens?
How about spaghetti strainers, salad spinners, electric mixers, pizza stones, juicers, bread machines, pasta makers?
How did she live without Tupperware, Rubbermaid, Pyrex and Corning? What about spices? She didn't have two drawers of Penzey's Spices, did she. Now, do you see my delima?
Actually, it's now much of a delima. So much of what I named, I can do without. It is just deciding what is most important.
Then we come to tools! What tools can a man not live without in a motorhome? John already has a large drawer and another toolbox under his seat. But what is absolutely needed? We don't know and are looking for suggestions.
Moving right along, I have done some more painting today.I was able to paint the exterior part of our patio doors....another step closer!
Right now though, I think I'll go through that gadget drawer and see what I can live without. Be sure though, to share what you find useful in your RV.
Thanks for coming by. And thanks goes out to new followers Gene and Judy from Blue Roads and Hiking Trails. They share their wonderful hikes as the hit the blue roads. Also welcome are Bob and Sue of Just B S!
Have a safe and peaceful day! And God Bless!
