Tools in the Kitchen

When it comes to my kitchenware, I like to mix thrift with a few well-made items. I try to save Amazon gift cards and use those on kitchen items I’ve been wanting instead of spending money on them.

Here are some of my favorite kitchen items that I use regularly that I think are worth the money & others items I save for thrift prices.

Garlic Press

Cutting Board-Bamboo or wood are best

Food Processor

Good Mixing Bowls


Mini Rice Cooker

Good Knife-Again, a gift. But this time from my Aunt & a small pairing knife which was a gift from my friend Jill. I’m so blessed! Although I got them as gifts, I’d surely buy them in the future and recommend them for all your kitchen chopping, mincing and slicking needs. Here are the knives I have: Zwilling J.A. Henckles.


I have purchased many things for my kitchen from thrift stores. I love being able to get great products at a much lower price. Here are some things I’ve purchase from my kitchen at various thrift stores:

White Ikea bowls

Brown Placemats

Blue Napkin-99 cents, Alturas Ca.
