New IKEA for the Kitchen: 15 Maybe-Good ThingsKitchen
We have a love/hate relationship with IKEA when it comes to kitchen supplies. (Well, and everything else too, I suppose.) On the one hand, you can find some terrific kitchen tools at low prices. On the other hand, we’ve been guilty of buying too much and taking home low-quality things we just never use. So now we usually stick to our tried and tested favorite kitchen tools from IKEA.

Instead of separate mugs, small and large glasses, and wine glasses, we’re looking for an “everything” glass. We love the double-walled Bodum glasses, and even found a great stacking version, but at $19.99 – $29.

Kitchen Keeping: How Many Sets of Dishes Do You Own?Kitchen
For some of us, our obsession with all things food doesn’t stop in the kitchen but extends out into the dining room. We’re talking plates, bowls, and glasses. Passing by a yard sale or a store display, sometimes those dishes just call out to us! Do you collect multiple sets of dishes or are you satisfied with just one?We think everyone should own at least one set of basic white plates and bowls. Food always looks rich and elegant when framed against white.

6 Reasons You Need Cloth NapkinsKitchen
Even if you think they’re fussy or too much work, we’ve got some good reasons why you should own (and use!) cloth napkins. No one wants to use paper napkins that are going to disintegrate after a few quick hand wipes during a messy meal. A cloth napkin can stand up to the messiest fingers — every single time. If your response to the gripe above is to just use paper towels, please stop right there. Paper towels (and paper napkins) are super wasteful.
