Or something like that. I'm moving hopefully as of tomorrow, and I am looking over my lists of things I need to get for my new place. Dividing possessions always seems to leave the most interesting holes, such as forks, spoons, and butterknives - but no sharp knives. Pots and pans, but no oven mitts. So I survey my list of must-haves and something is rebelling against the idea of going out and buying all of these things. It isn't like I know how to make knives or bottle brushes or can openers or serving utensils - I just hate the idea of contributing to the manufacturing machine. So my goal is to find as many of these things secondhand as possible, but I'd also like to make a few if I can - make my new apartment feel more homey. So the list is below, and if you know of a way to make such things or have seen a tutorial, please let me know.

Everything else I am hoping to scour craigslist and the local goodwill for in the hopes of promoting second lives for useful, but unwanted things. I want them, I swear!
