7 Things You Always Thought You’d Never Need

Doodads, knick knacks and gadgets galore.

When it comes to home organization, there are basically two kinds of people: minimalists and messies. Okay, perhaps that’s a bit of a stretch. It is, however, safe to say that most of us aspire to be the former rather than the latter. Speaking from my own experience, it’s not exactly easy to pull off. Especially if over the years you’ve collected a gazillion doodads, knick knacks, and other odds and ends that clutter your drawers and shelves, and usually just end up collecting dust. Not all such things are worthless, though. There are a handful of kitchen utensils that may seem superfluous and nonessential, but in reality hold great value. We’ve compiled a list of these doodads, knick knacks, and gadgets, and wholeheartedly recommend having them in your home kitchen!
