I had been meaning to buy flatware but every time I tried I would just stare at my options, get stressed out and leave the store.
And now I have service for eight people.
I also bought a whisk and really small frying pan. And then got stressed out an left the store.
But, a few days later I went to Target and I bought ever more kitchen shit. I was delighted that I could get so many things in orange and purple.
One motivation for minimalism is thinking about having to move. But, I realize I have two really large couches and having a set of mixing bowls or not isn't really going to matter.
