I took advantage of Crate & Barrel's annual Free Shipping promotion and ordered a bunch of semi-useless semi-useful stuff for the apartment. Take a look see:
1. Useful - Savannah Charcoal Rug Runner. The previous one had been chewed on, peed on, and maybe even pooped on by Buddy. The cleaning lady (Yes, we have one. It's so worth it to avoid fights with the hubs) didn't like it b/c it'd get caught in the vacuum and now is all misshapen. Everyone will be happier now.
2. Useless - Woof Dog Bowls. Let's face it, I bought these b/c they're cute and under the guise of keeping the dog bowls clean and in rotation. (They also have "meow" ones for kitties!)
3. Useless - Gallon-size Glass Jars. Our kitchen counter is already pretty crowded. No need for more stuff. Again, under the guise of "for snacks" and "for dog food." Mm hm.
4. Use...ful? - End grain Chopping Block. It's pretty and I didn't have one on our registry. Reason for this one? Wood blocks are better for our new fancy knives. HA! I'm so good at rationalizing my spending. Edit: I really like this board. It's easier to cut on and has lots of space.
