Unitasker Wednesday: Everyday Objects

All Unitasker Wednesday posts are jokes — we don’t want you to buy these items, we want you to laugh at their ridiculousness. Enjoy!

Flowers in a can. Simplistic and minimalistic — something that many of us here at Unclutterer appreciate.

You too can get this contemporary look for your home with items from the Everyday Objects collection from Tiffany & Co. For a mere $1500, this sterling silver coffee can (coffee not included) can display the daisies you hand-picked while you were skipping through an open field in joyful bliss. You could spend about $30 to buy a coffee can (coffee included) and some silver spray paint but it won’t be exactly the same.

If the coffee can doesn’t interest you, placing a sterling silver crazy straw into a bone china paper cup would add a touch of elegance and whimsy to your kitchen for only $345. You just wouldn’t get that same feeling from the $22 you pay for the stainless steel straws (that you can actually use), stuck into robin’s egg blue paper cups.

So, if you’re looking for the ultimate gift to give someone who already has a lot of everyday objects, check out Tiffany & Co. Everyday Objects collection which transforms utilitarian items into handcrafted works of art while simultaneously draining your wallet.

 

Thanks to Unclutterer’s Editor-at-Large, Erin Doland for this wonderful unitasker suggestion.

    My favorite is the $500 am/pm pill box – because I need to remember what a luxury taking medicine is. Clearly I’m not their target audience, but how stupid are these things. Buy the cheap version and donate the difference to a charity.

    So glad to see/read Erin’s still around! I hadn’t seen her in ages; seemed like she’d just dissolved in thin air.

    I really wonder who buys this shit.
    I can’t help but wonder if the pics are photoshopped. Surely, nobody has a 1,500 dollar coffee can hanging around in storage, just waiting for it to be sold.

    Related: a $600 “champagne saber,” a knife specifically designed to open a bottle of champagne. https://www.anthropologie.com/shop/claude-dozorme-champagne-sabre

    There’s something really offensive about these items. Like the bourgeoisie co-opting mass produced goods for the actual masses. Usually the booj shy away from consumer items once they become available in mass production to the working class; their elitism kicks in and they again search out something “unique” and expensive that isn’t available on an (as yet) mass scale.

    Regarding the pencil cup, I’m still using a Clabber Girl Baking Powder can as a pencil holder on my desk, and I purchased it in 1989!
