I don't know about you but I don't have a lot of free time and I don't want to spend all of it in the kitchen. Currently, my extra moments are spent having fun outside, which is WAYYYY better than stressing in the kitchen.

Try asking, does this support my goals?
If it's a YES, keep it.
If it's a NOPE, then trash it!
