How many items on your kitchen counter?

I know this is kind of random, but how many items do you keep on your kitchen counters. Currently I only keep my coffee pot, a coffee cup tree, my kitchenaid and spices on the counter. I am moving into a much bigger house and have a feeling the counters are gonna look so bare.

I probably have a bit too much on my counter, but we don't have much pantry space for some of these things. Fruit basket, food processor, can opener, canisters, coffee bean grinder, drip coffee maker, espresso maker, flavored syrups for espresso, spices, utensil container, and toaster. I'd love to have a better organized pantry to be able to get at least a few of these things off of the counter.

I have a decor vase with flowers, a chicken wire decor basket that I keep medicines in, knife holder, my husbands protein powder, a coffee/tea maker, honey comb jar, an antique hot water jug that I keep utensils in, a rooster by the sink that has an open back for my dish soap and dish rag, a scentsy, and oil and vinegar dispensers next to my stove. Kind of a lot of stuff

Microwave, coffee pot, tea rack, knife set. I have a tiny kitchen, with barely any counter space.

Four. I hate things on the counter. I hate clutter. I don't even keep my toaster out. Only my mixer and two coffee pots and knife set are on the counter. People laugh at me but oh well.

Because one coffee pot isn't good enough? haha kidding. I kind of want to do a coffee bar at my new house but am afraid it will look too cluttered. I totally wouldn't laugh, I don't like lot's of stuff either.

Sounds like you have a cute country style kitchen.

One is my kuerig and the other is a 10 cup coffee maker. I like the instant hot water from my kuerig for my tea and small coffee later in the afternoon. Or the kids and their hot chocolate in the afternoon. They can make it themselves.

I wanted a keurig so bad for the longest time, our coffee pot finally gave out last month and so I broke down. I am not nearly as in love with it as I thought I would be....
