I’m a College Student with a Tiny Apartment (and Budget) — These Are the Kitchen Tools I Swear By
When I moved into my college apartment at the beginning of my junior year, I couldn’t contain my excitement about cooking for myself and saying a permanent goodbye to the dining hall, but I quickly discovered that my cramped little kitchen didn’t have quite the same bells and whistles as my parents’ kitchen back at home. I had to be strategic about which products I bought in order to accommodate my limited storage space and tight budget, and it ended up being a lot more doable than I’d expected. With the right products, you can still whip up a ton without overflowing your cabinets and emptying your pockets. (And you don’t have to give up every little cooking luxury — I keep a small jar of Maldon sea salt on my counter.) Below, I’ve rounded up six items that I recommend to make the most of your limited space and funds.
