You know when you have that one item in your kitchen that you use multiple times a day that you should really own like five of them? Because inevitably it is always dirty, having just used it? Well, that would be my kitchen shears.
I kind of use them for everything. Cutting grapes for my toddler to prevent choking (who am I kidding? She still shoves them all in at the same time anyway….). Snipping my basil plant, sun-dried tomatoes, and anything else where I just don’t feel like whipping out a knife. And of course, cutting meat. Seriously, I can’t imagine using knives for cutting meat. Maybe if I had like the sharpest knife set in the world I wouldn’t think this way. But I don’t and it’s so easy trim and cut meat portions with just a few lil’ snips.
The current kitchen shears that I use the most are these babies by Henckel. They are decently sharp, and maintain a good edge with a little love from a steel now and then. The pieces come apart so that they clean easily. Yes, I’m happy with these shears. And the best part for me really was the price. I think I paid a whopping $2.
Now folks, I’m not really a coupon clipper. I tried that once and it just wasn’t my thang because I could never really find coupons for stuff that I actually bought on a regular basis. But I do know my pricing. I know when a dozen eggs goes up by 10 cents at the grocery store. Not that I mean to be a price stalker. I’m just kind of a nerd like that. And I do still get me a good deal when it’s convenient. My secret to some fun kitchen gadgets for super cheap: The Kohl’s $10 Gift Card.
I just randomly get these cards in the mail once in a while. How did I get on “the list”? I don’t know, but I don’t complain. I have never really shopped at Kohl’s, and I think for the most part a lot of the stuff is overpriced, but not a few select items marked down for “the deal” along with the $10 gift card.
You see, I get one of those cards and then I go straight for the kitchen section. (Of course, plan it around your other shopping or outings – otherwise you’re still paying for “the deal” in time and gas and that’s just not cool). I find what’s “on sale” and hovering somewhere in the $10-20 range after their mark down, and then I get something fun for the kitchen for next to nothing.
So do me a favor the next time you get one of those cards (they just mail them to everyone, right?)…..send it to me. Or just go pick up some of these shears or some other ridiculously good deal.
