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.

I have wooden spoons. I don't grab them often. I don't know why, they just never really appealed to me. Maybe for mixing mac and cheese, or making stew or chili, which I don't do often enough. One of them should be tossed, too. The handle has quite the warp in it, but it still "works" so I keep it

I have a couple of handfuls of wooden utensils. I mostly buy them on a whim, generally from the local Krogers, who has racks of gadgets at 10 for $10. When they wear out or break, I throw them away. Lately, I have acquired a few silicone items, and like them, especially basting brushes. They are easy to clean and don't rust. Found a silicone 3" scraper with one round corner, which is really good for cleaning the tin interiors of my copperware. I too am following the practice of ridding myself of at least one thing if I get something new.
