Things that are most likely the devil:

     What do we really need? And do we need what we have? And could we possibly need more?
     Curious about that, I decided to do an inventory of sorts. In my home, here's what I counted:
  1. There are at least 11 keys on my laptop that I’ve never used.
  2. I have 67 blank CDs and 13 blank DVDs.  (Um, how much data could I possibly need to store?)
  3. We own 5 cameras.
  4. There are 6 bottles of shampoo in my shower and there are 3 bathrooms in my house.
  5. There are more than 25 coats hanging in various closets in my home.
  6. There are 36 dinner plates in my cupboards.
  7. There are 43 DVDS in our TV cabinet (for one TV).
  8. There are 6 phones in my house (and 4 people in my family).
  9. We own 2 popcorn-makers, 5 frying pans, 11 pots, 2 crock-pots, 1 grill, 2 griddles (and there are 4 burners on my stove).
  10. There are 53 electrical outlets in my house, many with something plugged in.
  11. I have one banana guard—a plastic case that prevents the banana in my lunch from getting bruised. Seriously.
  12. And finally, there are 372 headache pills in my cabinet. Maybe now I know why.
My conclusion? Stuff is the devil.

After reading this I have come to the conclusion that you need another popcorn maker:

@LoC Hilarious! (And that is one serious popcorn maker!)

@Missy Crock pots are useful, but two are just excessive.

I keep finding stuff that doesn't belong to me.
Do I count that too?
