so many uses, so little space

well, as i'm adjusting to our new place, i am rethinking all kinds of storage solutions and having many "do i really need this?" moments. and as i dutifully unpacked each kitchen box, i found myself, over and over again, thinking about an all-in-one kitchen set i had seen in a crate and barrel catalog a few months ago.

it wasn't long before i searched it out and discovered that it was on sale! it's the 8-piece multi-use kitchen set (that's a mouthful) and it's perfectly neat and clean in dishwasher-safe white plastic. each piece neatly stacks into the next, and the whole takes up no more space than a large mixing bowl. when i think about all the sets of bowls i have, there are maybe two from each set i actually use. the rest just take up space and collect dust.
i think having 2 of these sets would give you a stocked kitchen - this way, even with pieces in use or in the dishwasher, you have backup. i really think this is ingenious. think about how many pieces in your kithen you could do away with if you had just one or two of these. and for $30 a set instead of the normal $50, it's quite a steal.

very tempting thought. my fear is that i'd get two and keep all the other bowls too. the best laid plans...
