One of the principles that is often espoused in discussions around decluttering is the idea of “One In,One Out”.
Just before Christmas I bought a new iron as mine had ceased to work as it should. Since it can still be used (sort of) it would be easy to put it away ‘just in case’. Just in case what? Just in case my brand-new one does not work properly? No, it had to go, so I have given it away.
One of my Christmas gifts was a new frying pan so I have given away the old one. The original is a cast iron Le Creuset pan which we were given as a wedding present. It has given wonderful service but is very heavy and can be difficult to lift so it was time for a new home. I listed it on Freecycle on the recipient is very pleased with her ‘new’ frying pan.
This is my new Neoflam pan. I have yet to use it but am sure it will be perfect.
