This is 100 times more expensive than necessary. I have had a kitchen for 50 years and most of these items are luxury goods not necessities
Hi Dee! Of course, you can buy these at dollar stores to save money! (I shared Amazon items because they ship internationally, so it’s more available to more people than a dollar store) But I honestly use most of these (or similar) items. I hope I can give some ideas to anyone who just about to set up their kitchen or anyone who wants to expand their kitchen tools. -Love, Anna
Hi, thank you for these, they are quite helpful because we will be moving in fall and someone has already indicated interest in our current place, not just the house but everything is included and so, we are just leaving with our clothes. You can imagine how happy I am with these items listed and amazon ship internationally is a plus.
Much love from Nigeria
