Knowing that you should purge an item when it’s no longer useful and actually letting the item go are two different things. When it comes to letting go, it’s always the ridiculous things that are the hardest for me to part with.
The bowls work perfectly… all but one of them. The lid on that one doesn’t fit right. He’s quite tricky about hiding his “lid fit” problem. The lid fits perfectly well at room temp. But the next day when I pick that little guy up out of the fridge, whoosh, the lid no longer fits and I end up with a mess.
It took me over a year to figure out what was going. When I tested the lid after cleaning up the mess, the lid would fit just fine (dun dun dun dun) until the next time it went into the fridge. The plastic lid on that one bowl contracts just enough in the cold refrigerator to pop off the edge of the bowl.
(Luckily, I still have 3 others that are cute AND work perfectly.)
