One of many duplicates we found we had after my husband and I moved in together. Shame it took me over a year of marriage before we decided to part with it. Especially given that neither one of us drinks coffee.
Cost: I think my husband spent about $20 on this.
What convinced me to get rid of it: Seeing both of our coffee pots stacked up on top of our cabinets while I was digging for a mug for tea, the only hot caffeinated beverage we drink.
Fate: The “free box” area in our apartment complex’s basement.
Total money wasted on junk this year: $73.
