Defeating clutter through simple actions

I started reducing kitchen clutter with one simple, effective step: jettisoning martini glasses. We had 3 sets ot 2 martini glasses. After a few years in our house we never had used them. Not even once. I thought about getting rid of one set. Then we would have reduced them by 30 percent but still be able to serve 4 martinis if occasion called. What? Who was I kidding. We never would be serving martinis. We don't even have the proper ingredients! So I reluctantly added all 6 glasses to the donation box and didn't look back. 

They have never been missed. And now the kitchen has less stuff. So what's your kitchen's martini glass? Find it and get it gone.
