If you tend to open your kitchen cabinets with a sense of trepidation because you're never sure what's going to fall out on your head or feet, it's time for an intervention.
Don't feel too bad: Kitchen cabinets can quickly turn into a messy black hole — a place where things go in and never seem to come out, unless they're avalanching. What can you do? Invest in some cabinet organizers. We've rounded up 10 of them that will make your kitchen (and your life) run more smoothly. Read it on The Kitchn.
Have you heard? Bowls are the new plates. It's true. Everything from smoothies to grain-filled dinners are being served in bowls these days. While you've always eaten your soup and cereal out of bowls (you're not an animal!), you may find yourself reaching for them far more often — especially if you've been eating more yogurt lately.
If that's the case, using the same old dish over and over (and over) again can get old. Like, really old. Do yourself a favor and get some new bowls to help fun up your routine — and the look of your kitchen cabinets. Maybe one (or some) of these? Read it on The Kitchn.
Mary Poppins: the nanny of all nannies, the British lady who single-handedly got two kids to clean up their rooms by merely singing a song, transported them into cartoon fox hunt with a random Cockney chimney sweep by somehow jumping into a chalk drawing, used a clever bit of reverse pyschology to get them to go to bed (the song "Stay Awake," of course), and educated the kids' banker father about the evils of capitalism like a young, beautiful, more realistic Bernie Sanders. The guy was named MR. BANKS for Christ's sake, but somehow she got him to give up on money and go fly a friggin' kite. What a miracle worker.
You wanna be as big of a badass as Mary Beyonce Poppins? You can try. First step? Wear this Mary Poppin Bottles T-Shirt ($28, Buy Me Brunch) and stuff your giant bag with bottles of alcohol instead of a full-sized hat rack and then sing "Spoonful of Sugar" when everyone's taking shots.
If you're a lover of food, you probably spend most of your money on meals — whether it's your fondness for the taco truck, your penchant for fancy cocktails, or your desire to eat at the newest, hottest restaurants. Why not save up by using one of these appropriately food-themed piggy banks? Read it on The Kitchn.
