I was going through my cutters tonight and realized I have several duplicates. I was wondering what everyone does to avoid this. Do you keep a list somewhere? I was thinking of putting a list as a memo on my phone so I would be able to look before I buy but if anyone has other ideas, please share!

 

Or can one never have too many cookie cutters? :wink:

I keep a list in my head; retrieval is faster than storing anywhere else.

I did an inventory and now I have a list on my laptop.  Since my phone is not all that smart, I printed out the list in a very small font and I keep it in my wallet.  It has saved me from buying duplicates a couple of times!

As long as there's room in the garage, or the attic, One can never have too many cookie cutters.;-D

I think subconsciously that's the reply I wanted. After I got done chastising myself, I saw Sur La Table had a bunch on sale for $0.76 so I ordered even more. This is getting to be a pricey habit. I do this for fun but I am hooked. My friends don't mind, though. Free sweets for them!

then you may also call them 'Fondant Cutters' and shop till you drop.

I really like your thought process!

AI use an inkpad and stamp new cutters on a piece of paper (several shapes to a page) and keep the pages in page protectors in a binder organized by category. These come in handy if I want to repurpose a cutter. I trace over the shape and try drawing new designs.

Another genius idea. I think I will try that!

Quoted for truth.

Duplicates don't bother me too much. I use them as an excuse to swap for other cutters with other decorators! Also, you can always turn them into gifts. Place the cutter on waxed paper, pour in some melted chocolate and then add some sprinkles (coordinate with different holidays, if you want). When the chocolate is set, place in a plastic baggie and tie with a pretty ribbon. (I love finding ways to share chocolate!)

GeminiRJ:  This is the 'Sunflower' cookie cutter that you use for your 3D turkey cookies, correct?

Yes, that's it! I cut off the bottom 3 points. You could use a round cutter or a flower cutter if you want..I just liked the sunflower best for doing the turkey feathers. I also use it to make peacocks, so you can at least get multiple uses out of the cutter.
