Splurge, Save, Steal: Build a Better Breakfast
Look, I know you have a million reasons to skip your morning meal: a long commute, desire to sleep in, desire to not burn anything before 9 am. But when you can find the time for it, treating yourself to a leisurely breakfast is always a good choice. That’s why this week’s picks from Apartment Therapy Marketplace are all about the most important meal of the day, and how they can help you reach some tasty goals before heading out the door.
Splurge: Handmade Wooden Egg Holder
This isn’t a splurge because of an insanely outrageous price tag, but rather the luxury that comes with something that you technically don’t need. This handmade egg holder not only adds some rustic vibes to your kitchen; it also keeps eggs secure and close at hand for when you’re whipping up a frittata or pancake batter from scratch.
Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $50.
Nothing can affect the outcome of a day more than coffee. This Starbucks coffee maker comes with a complementary milk frother, meaning that you can whip up a rival to your local coffee shop while getting ready for the day. As a bonus, buying the coffee maker and milk frother new would set you back a little over $200, but buying this set will save you $140. Because you know what pairs well with coffee? Saving money.
Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $60.
Steal: 4-Seater Round Dining Table
Every enjoyable meal needs a place to happen, since it’s hard to enjoy a plate of pancakes while balancing them precariously on your side table. This modern dining table is compact enough to find a home in even the smallest apartments, and the perfect spot to take a minute and enjoy your culinary creations. And while you’re at it, enjoy how little you had to spend to get there.
Available on Apartment Therapy Marketplace, $299.
