current shoe obsession
alas, the sneaker. (because I live in nyc and walk a ton!) but not too sneakery of a sneaker. more of a sneaker disguised as a shoe, like a mary jane style or a high-tech looking black one with a metallic accent. how about Royal Elastics? I must go try some on. I really like the non-sneakeryness of their styles.





click clack containers

My food after Click Clack. Peace of mind.

Today, I spent my day sorting food. And repackaging food into pricey airtight rectangular containers made in New Zealand which I had to purchase at The Container Store. I remember seeing these containers, perfectly shaped for small urban kitchen cabinets, a year ago. I wrote down measurements in my notebook for all the food I needed to store, and marched to the Click Clack display with my tape measure. Thankfully, all the sizes I wanted were in stock at the 58th Street store. We simply don't have the space for round containers. As I write this, all I can think of is the costly Japanese square watermelon, apparently invented to save space in store displays, and in people's refrigerators. But can that really be true?

Anyway, too many dollars later, I have the perfect containers to keep my food airtight and yes well bug-free. If it weren't for the critters, I would not have spent the too many dollars. I would have kept the food in the packages they came in, as I always did. But now that I own the Click Clack containers, I am pleased as punch, and feel that at least it is a good investment. I kind of like click-clacking them open and closed. And I have the peace of mind knowing my lentils and other foodstuffs are safe.

In my mind, the Click Clack containers are similar to the Japanese square watermelons.
Costly, but great space savers.
