I spent years living with roommates, using mismatched cups and plates. At one point, I think we only had two forks between the four of us. Needless to say, the second I had the chance to decorate and furnish my own apartment, I couldn’t wait to pick out my own stuff, especially when it came to kitchenware. I needed everything from full dining sets to cups, silverware, you name it. Starting to shop, though, was a little overwhelming, because there’s so much choice out there. All I knew was I wanted affordable, useful, and fun products.
After I began my search, I found a ton of handy and stylish things on Amazon, H&M, and Urban Outfitters. From fruit-emoji-themed plates to luxe gold knives and forks, I feel in love with so many things. Ahead, I curated a list of my 50 favorite finds that all cost $50 or less, so you can shop, too. So, what are you waiting for? Now’s the time to throw out those old dishes and treat yourself to something new. Take a look.
