    This post is SO great, because in contrast to so many blogs, magazines, and shows, it really encourages of contentedness and resourcefulness! How many times have I thought, “If my kitchen only looked like…” or “If I only had…THEN I could…” (Obviously, a pinterest-worthy kitchen would be lovely, but it was so great to see that it’s not necessary!)
    I got a great chuckle out of your before/after pics because I was right there with you with the whisk, tongs, and grater! Doesn’t something like mixing with a whisk with a solid round handle that doesn’t pinch your hand or drip rust into your food just absolutely thrilling?!
    Keep up the good work, Eryn. Your posts are well-written and inspiring. I feel like I have a new perspective looking at my kitchen today!

      Thank you so much, Elizabeth, that’s very encouraging! Hahah, a “pinterest-worthy kitchen”, I like that. Yes I used my new whisk for the first time last night and it was a wonderful new experience 😉

    Great, fun, funny, and useful blog post!

    Now to answer your question. IMHO, our best re-purposed item is a 99 cent plastic baby bottle. It is used to tamp down food into canning jars to get the air out, its bottom is the perfect size for this purpose. 🙂
