10 Things to Do With $10: Kitchen Accessories

It's a rare day indeed when we at LearnVest suggest you spend.

Usually we're helping you stay on budget, earn more and save for your top financial priorities. The reward of that, after all, is a steadily growing savings accounts and financial peace of mind.

But we also believe in letting ourselves splurge every so often. (Here are rules for doing it right.) In fact, if done right, it actually promotes a healthy relationship with money.

Which Gadgets are Crucial in Your Kitchen?

Pop into LV Discussions and tell us about your favorite kitchen accessory—and where we can find it!

Which is why we present another edition of 10 Things to Do With $10, just in case you have a little extra cash lying around at the end of the month for a quick pick-me-up. This time we themed it around a popular holiday activity: cooking. Since we're likely to be spending a lot of time in our kitchen at this time of year, we could use a little culinary cheer.

We've already told you which big ticket kitchen appliances are worth it; now here are a few small, clever tools that make good investments. (Psst ... they also make great gifts.)

    since i can not find the discussion topic i will talk about it here on this page.  for kitchen accessoris i would use the poach pods. they come in twos and they are great for poaching eggs. they are about $10.
    as for food, one should have staples in their pantry. staples like bags and cans of beans and oatmeal. beans cost about $.79-$1.29 at the store and i like the oatfit oatmeal because you can microwave it in 90 seconds and it helps lower your cholesterol. oatfit cost about $1.69 for a pack of 5. its well worth it especially if one is diabetic.

    The OXO measuring cups are one of the greatest designs in kitchen tools.  I have given them as Christmas gifts in sets for friends, family, and school teachers.  Everyone loves them.

    I like keeping my coupons in the car. I have them handy when I need to stop at the store with my list. I look over the sale ads on Sunday and make a list of good deals from each store. I try going early Sunday but sometimes will shop later in the week.
