They better not care if we sell it! The pile in the garage is growing by the hour!

Though, I finally did have to put my foot down. At that point, I had a baby AND was preggo. Didn't have a lot of time to go through things and didn't have a lot of space either.

Hope you have a killer garage sale . I could use a good bundt pan over here, but like you said...shipping is a killer!!! I love to cook and in particular bake. Sounds like GMIL did too. Though, irony is, I have the smallest kitchen of anyone I know who is in a 4 bedroom house. So, I am really picky though...don't have a lot of anything. BUT, I do have three waffle irons. But, waffles are my favorite breakfast out there and I USE THEM ALL! LOL :
I am guilty of giving things away that should probably be tossed because I am too attached to them. I tell the receiver (usually my sister) to toss whatever they don't want and I won't feel bad.

Three waffle irons sounds like a great idea. I can't bring myself to buy one because I know I'll be stuck in the kitchen cooking them while everyone else is eating and talking, etc. I don't want to be left out! But to have 3 going at once would be sooo efficient.

I would love a bundt pan too. For monkey bread.

My ideal waffle maker would be one that would make three belgium waffles at once. I wish they weren't such a pain to store. (I have two, and one of them I don't even really like, because the squares are smaller and the waffle comes out thin and crunchier.)

Incidentally, there's no reason why they can't wait until you're done with all the waffles. That is what I do. The most I use at one time is two (two outlets anyhow LOL). Maybe if I had more counterspace I could use them all at once. Usually I use our belgium waffle maker and Hello Kitty Waffle iron at the same time. They do store easily, on their sides, so don't take up much space. The kids are VERY enthusiastic about the hello kitty waffles. In fact, my DH bought the maker for my DD's birthday!
