Alright...
Come clean...
Have you ever bought something thinking "that would be soooo handy in my kitchen or in my workshop etc ? what about exercise equipment ? only for it to sit in cupboard or garage and gather dust.
We bought a pie maker once, spent the evening making great pies for tea... that was 3 years ago. Found it again when moving into the new house... Wow, lets make pies for tea!.. that was 12 months ago. What about garden tools, used once and destined to sit in the shed forever?

If buying things, using them once or twice then commiting them to the bin or charity shop was and olympic sport my wife would be certain to get the gold medal. LOL (I hope she does't see this.

I bought my wife a Palm Pilot several years ago... she wanted it to keep her organized... She still buys a day planner every year...

She's an avid reader and she wanted a Barnes & Noble "nook" (e-reader)... I talked her out of it reminding her of the Palm experience.

I found the Palm Pilot the other day... still works, but have zero use for it and I think the Palm craze has long ended with smart phones taking their place.
