[last used] Again, no idea

[difficulty level in getting rid of it] Easy

[destination] Thrift store

[info] Yes, I’m making a big deal out of a 50¢ pencil sharpener.  Give me a break, I listed a $4,000 computer at the beginning of this challenge.  I have several of these in all types and sizes.  I don’t know where half of them came from and I don’t know why I’ve kept so many of them.  I have at least 5 more to get rid of… somewhere…
