My mother always used to say,
For every pot, there is a lid.
She was referring to love, meaning that for every person, there was a good match out there, someone who could “complete” them.
But let’s think about this literally for a moment. Is there a lid for every pot in your kitchen? Is there a pot for every lid? Are there lidless pots and potless lids lurking in the deep corners of your cupboards? Why are they still there? And what are they waiting for?
If your kitchen has extra cupboard space you don’t need, and you have spare time to search through that space, then keeping extra lids or pots will work just fine for you.
But for the rest of us, who want to save space and time, let’s keep only those things which serve a purpose, ok?
