We all love adding things to our home, especially if it’s a brand-new house. But there is a big difference between what we want and what we need. Here are five things you really don’t need at home:
1. Fine china:
First off, they are really expensive, and if we are being honest, they will just end up collecting dust in the cabinet. Instead, choose a set that you and your family can use every day.
2. A full knife set:
With the exception of chefs and kitchen enthusiasts, not a lot of us need a full kitchen knife set. What you do need is a chef’s knife, paring knife and bread knife, and you’ll be good to go!
3. Throw pillows:
Throw pillows make for great accessorize, but they do not add to the comfort of the couch in any way. In actuality, they can make a couch look extra cluttered, and they are a handful to maintain.
4. A set of Tupperware:
Yes, we know that you need them to store leftovers, as most people do, but that doesn’t mean that you need a 15-piece set. Generally, you will use around 4 or 5 pieces, so opt to purchase those instead of an entire set that will just take space in the kitchen.
5. Specialty appliances:
waffle and ice cream makers, toasters and juicers… Unless you’re a chef, then there is no need for these items to take up space in the kitchen.
