Why Do People In Minnesota, Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin Have More Than One of These 15 Items?

No one really knows why people in Minnesota, Iowa, Wisconsin, and Illinois tend to "collect" some items more than others.  We aren't talking about your forks, blankets, or the items that you truly need more than one of.  These are the items that you really could just toss or recycle...or NOT BUY IN THE FIRST PLACE because you already have one.

I dare you to walk in a house in one of these states and go through cabinets and drawers to see what you can find.  I bet that you will find at least 9 of the 15 items below in duplicate.

Not sure why, but people in Minnesota and Wisconsin have more than one of these 15 items.

If you walk through a house in Minnesota, Wisconsin, or Iowa, there is a very good chance that you will see some items more than once. Yes, we are talking about those duplicates that we have that we aren't always sure why...but we just have a tough time getting rid of the extras.
