We decided to go with this two-tier drying rack over on the rolling cart to see if we could fundamentally improve our dish situation.
If you have a plastic utensil holder and want to avoid that grimy mess on the bottom, this is the metal drying cup we almost purchased.
This is the drying rack I’ve seen on sustainable housewares websites. We knew it would be too small for us, so we went with something from Amazon.
Moving the drying rack to the rolling cart meant we had to move the microwave to the counter, which has actually made it easier to plug it in and microwave rather than needing to roll the cart over and rotate it every time.
We decided to go with this drying mat because the wool is more absorbent than cotton and the linen sleeve matches our kitchen towels almost exactly.
We cleared out our center upper cabinets to be a baking cabinet rather than storing all that stuff in the rolling cart, which is harder to get into.
If you missed our discussion about finally buying a roasting pan after years of using disposable ones, check out episode 4.
We picked up this grill pan at Target because the one we had was impossible to clean and we avoided using it at all costs.
We also decided to finally get new cookie sheets after giving up on removing all the baked-on crap on the ones we had.
I bought our last wok while I was in college, and the finish was chipping off. This one is definitely an upgrade.
It was finally time to ditch our hole-y Tupperware and get some new ones.
We’ve had this knife sharpener for a long time but totally forgot we had it until we were cleaning out our drawers. We watched this YouTube video to learn how to use it and finally sharpened our chef’s knife.
We’ve recommended these drawer dividers before, but they’re so, so good. We cleaned out both our drawers and reorganized everything so we can actually remember where it goes.
This bag came with a pair of shoes I bought, and I held on to it so I could find a use for it. We decided to hang it between our oven mitts to hold towels so we could create more room in the drawer they used to be in.
To make even more space in that drawer, we bought this vintage aluminum foil holder on Etsy. We’re storing aluminum foil, waxed paper, and parchment paper in here.
