Many of us are guilty of buying new electrical gadgets that we only use once and then store away in a cupboard. It is easy to get swept away with marketing and buy gadgets because they are sold in such a way that makes us think that we need them. For example, you may go to your local supermarket and find an egg cooker that will cook boiled eggs in under 10 minutes. You may think that this is useful and instantly put one in your trolley, but will it really save you that much time or be a lot easier than boiling a pan of water?
Most gadgets are designed to save time, money, hassle or mess. Some gadgets are sold that they will do all of these things. Gadgets for the kitchen are often the thing that most people say they have too many of. If you have not used a gadget for a number of months, you may not really need it. Rather than just putting it in the bin why not try and sell it and recoup some of your money back. You may wish to donate your electrical goods to a charity shop but not all can accept them, so it is worth checking it first.
