I can relate. Every so often, Mother goes on a 'purging'
ritual, whereby she discards everything that SHE doesn't

My mother has a batterd old 9x13 baking pan that she got as a wedding present 55 years ago.

When she recently moved from the big house to an apartment, I again offered to replace it with something new, and she refused. She said she had put a clause in her will that the pan is to be buried with her. She said she intends to bake a Chocolate Chip Date Cake for the Lord when she gets to heaven and she'll need her pan. I couldn't argue with that!
So true! I reach for utensils I have had forever, instead of the new ones even though the new might (or might not) do a better job. I am a creature of habit. DH keeps hinting the kitchen could do with a good clean out and purging. LOL
