After having lived on my own and mostly cooking for myself for 3+ years and accumulating many pots and pans and spatulas and baking pans, I still only have one spoon. I got my spoon in Taiwan in 2007 (yay AID!). It has a bird on it.
And here’s a list of things I have more of than spoons:
dish drying racks.
large jars of peanut butter.
Shoutouts to my little brother, who helped inspire this post. I’m thankful to my parents (2), roommates (2), friends, family, and my privilege to have >1 of all of these items.
