I haunt the second hand stores in my area. Budget wise best bet for me. Takes a bit somtimes to get what i need or wont. I only go when i got the few dollars in my pocket. Its a game though. You see it you wont it get it. Because you go back for it chances it wont be there. Iv gotten my $5 percolater coffee pot i love. When you live n apartments that occassionally gets lots of bugs. Call me paranoid but im not liking the drip pot then lol i had one roaches in an out. My mom has sent me lots of brands new gadgets bless her. Iv gotten my pots , pans set $5 when i was able to stop being homless. 4 Plates $3, 2 bowls $1 2 coffee cups $1 silverware - knives $2 im still searching so with time i know i will find more. **** santariay isn't an issue most things if you have dishwasher put it in not dishwashwer no big deal get dishwasher soap put stopper in kitchen sink start runinv scalding water an add the dishwasher soap sit the things in let them soak a bit an then come back finsh cleaning. Appliances cant go in dishwasher no big deal use cleaners an clean. I was raised an Army tough Brat by my Dad Seargent First Class Army Retired an a Threifty Well Mannered Sothern Belle By Mom Antique Dealer Retired Given that pedigree lol me an thrift stores are best buds not bragging trying to explain there are thing that can be unsantary yes.

We go yard saleing, so we have gotten a bunch of stuff second hand. A few cast iron skillets $1 each Over a dozen small drinking glasses 25 cents for all I'm sure there's more than that, but that's what comes to mind.
One of those big honkin Kitchen Aid mixers. My dad never uses/used it so he gave to my son and I.

A hand-me-down small cast iron skillet for many years. No price, but a great deal of sentiment has built up between us. Things to drink out of and put things into I have made on the wheel. In general, I have few kitchen things and few of them are new. These objects, when I hold them or use them, take me to a particular time and place...Maybe too heavy with memory they are.
I just got a bamboo steamer, for 5 bucks! I got a metal bowl thingy, with a banana hook, replacing my fruit/veg bowl, and a separate banana hook. Couple of bucks. I got a plastic bag of butter knives. 3 bucks (where do they go???)
I might go back for the spice rack. After almost thirty years in a kitchen I think I want one.
I want a wand blender, but I've never seen one.
What cool kitchen stuff did you find? Best of all, PLEASE boast about the price. March
