After college, I inhered my mom’s million-year-old Farberware and a toaster oven the same age as me. Since then, I’ve accumulated enough kitchenware that my kid’s bedroom closet acts as a storage space. Some of the items I’ve bought, clearly, are not the most necessary. Below, though, are the ones I can’t live without.

  • Skoy Cloths

    Great, eco-friendly towels you can use to wipe up spills, clean your counters, and whatever else. They are easy to clean and last a long time.

    Buy it
  • The Spice House

    This is my favorite place to buy dried herbs and spices (and almond extract, vanilla beans, mushrooms, and a million other things).  Imagine a world where spices are both better tasting and less expensive than their grocery store counterparts and you have this place. I cannot say enough good things about this store, from the selection to the people who run it and work there. They frequently have free shipping deals so be sure to check their social media. (I swear I do not work for them, I am merely obsessed with them.)
