When my daughter was younger, she had an Easy-Bake toy oven. It ended up on a top shelf of a cabinet after she stopped using it, and then it just stayed there for years…

Of course, there’s no reason for it sitting around so long. A toy oven belonging to a 22-year-old college graduate is about as obvious as clutter gets! I’m not even going to venture an explanation for how I let that happen. Anything I could say would be, well, half-baked.

About Clutter Comedy: Every Sunday (which I envision as a day of rest after a productive week of de-cluttering) I post a Clutter Comedy article describing my most memorable clutter discovery of the week. Other bloggers who wish to join in are welcome—just post a link in the comments! There’s no need to publish any “before” photos of your clutter, if they are too embarrassing. The idea is simply to get motivated to clean it up, while having a bit of fun too!


  1. An original easybake oven might net a pretty penny (at least gas money for job searches) on eBay for your sweet college graduate… Our clutter may be someone else’s collectables! ?

  2. OH Meg this made me laugh out loud! 🙂 Thanks for your posts that make me smile. We had one of those ovens too! Have a great day!

  3. I loved my Easy Bake Oven. The cake was a little lopsided, but I was five, I hardly cared. I thought the light bulb in the back was magic…
