I had to think about this for a little bit:

Water purification tablets
A few scarves (which I'll be selling/donating now that I recall that I have them)
My laptop (I sit in front of a computer enough at work, I use my kindle or phone at home)
fire extinguishers (been meaning to check if mine are on the recall list, there was an article a few weeks ago)
apron
grill pan
fitness jump rope

Actually, I have an elliptical but I use it pretty regularly. The only thing hanging on it are my resistance bands which, come to think of it, I hardly ever use. :rolleyes:

Waffle Iron
Toaster
Electric Can Opener
George Foreman Grill
Bathtub
Rice steamer/cooker

In fact, the only small appliance I use on any regular basis is my crock pot.

Also, closets and dresser are rarely used. I have tendency to buy only clothes that don't show wrinkles and live out of laundry hampers in between laundry days. Everything clean is in the hampers in our Doortal (walk through closet/half bedroom thingie, it needs explained) and dirty stuff goes in the other hamper in the bathroom.

If they're more than a couple of years old, replace them. Larger commercial extinguishers are serviceable but most smaller ones that people have at home are not.

This motivated me to finally go and look up that recall, because I really didn't want to pay!

both models that i own ended up being on the recall list.

I filled out an online form with the manufacturer and should be getting 2 replacements for free within '10-15 business days'

If anyone else is curious if they're eligible for free extinguisher replacements if you have a Kidde fire extinguisher,
More info:

Online recall form:
https://inmarmarketaction.com/kidde/
even if you aren't 100% sure if yours is impacted, if you plug in the model and it's not on the list, then it's not affected. or you can fill out the whole thing with the serial numbers and all and the confirmation page will tell you explicitly that it's unaffected or affected.

We have a Total Gym, a Nordic Trac, an Exercise Bike, an Ab Crusher, and about another 6 or 8 smaller pieces of equipment, that since I had my knee replaced, hardly ever get used anymore.

Just a suggestion, but don't ya think the bathtub should be used at least once a week?

There is a separate corner shower that gets used daily. The bathtub is just a tub, and even though it has jets, it's smaller than me by a large margin, and when I sit in it, i have to cross my legs, which is uncomfortable. Sorry to ruin your joke though. :p

Forget the bathtub. The George Foreman grille is what I'm concerned about.

An astute observation, Ralph. And a very good point.

all the unused waffle irons! waffles are so good.
I don't eat enough waffles to justify having a waffle iron but I could sure go for some now. Blueberry and pecan.

Also, some of us appear to be sitting on $$$$...throw those unused items for sale on OfferUp, LetGo, or Varage Sale.

When I lived in Pennsylvania, I bought an awesome winter trench coat that I love so much. Now that I live in Texas, I don't get much opportunity to wear it. So there it is, hanging in my closet. *sob* :(

Well, now you can use it as an excuse to go on vacation in Pennsylvania, anyway. :)
