So I'm sorting through all my cabinets, and it hits me:
The guilt of stuff unused.
You know what I'm talking about. The second breadmaker that you picked up for double-batches of cinnamon rolls. The Italian platter that was half an inch too wide to fit in the kitchen cabinet.
I look at these purchases, and I regret the money I spent.
But that's no reason to hang on forever. Accept that I'll never preheat the bread warmer before dinner starts. Give it to a friend who has always wanted one.
Find the surplus and make a plan for using it up. Heavy on vases? I'll be sending a lot of bouquets this spring.
The less you spend on your purchases, the less you will regret the ones which are mistakes. And every shopper makes them, no matter how cheap or smart you are.
Do you have something you wish you'd never bought? What is it and how do you plan to let it go?
