Your new set looks terrific...I like wooden spoons (olive wood are great), but I recognize that silicone is great to cleaning pans after making sauce.
Oh, and relative to being a pack rat... I used to be just like that until I decided to get rid of something every time I bring something new to the house. This applies to clothing, tools, cookware, you name it. That makes me think twice before buying/ordering anything.
