Friday Bargain Bin: What to Eat With Your Allowance This Week

Victory Garden Pickle Kit, $14.95 (was $19.95)
Did you grow a bunch of veggies this summer but forget to make enough friends to share them with? The discount pays for shipping! Throw some carrots and cauliflower in that polish one.

Victorinox 8″ Chef’s Knife, $27.52 (was $40)
I highly recommend taking cooking classes for fun, where they’ll teach you this is the best knife — no need to spend hundreds. Just keep it sharp! And since you’ve already earned free shipping, throw these in your cart. They are the best, but are easily thrown in the trash by dummies.

Rabbit Wine Stoppers, $5.50 (were $6.99)

Baking With Julia, $25 (was $40)
This is seriously the best baking book in the land and it’s not even written by Julia. Start with the white bread, end with this insane Tourte Milanese. Holy crap. Orrr, go new school:

Stump Portable Electronic Stand, $14.99 (was $24)
The modern-day version of those disgusting, batter-covered plexiglass book holders your mom’s weird friend used to display The Silver Palate on her kitchen counter.

Mikuni Wild Foods of the Month, $139.95 for three months
Any gifting coming up? Three months of “two pounds of rare mushrooms, greens, fruits and vegetables.” You can buy this when you’ve pickled the veggies you’ve already got, young lady. (Psst, Mom — You can never send too many morels.) Speaking of shrooms…

Curious Deciduous Salad Plate, $7.95 (was $16)
Just read the comment on this one.

Baker’s Edge 12×9 Pan, $19.99 (was $39.95)
I’m not sure I agree with the premise of this product, but maybe you do? Care to elaborate?

Shiny Black Bag From Upscale Grocery Store That European-Type Ladies Carry Around NYC, $30 (was $40)

Notte by Marchesa Silk Kaftan, $445.50 (was $990)
And this is what you shall wear to host your dinner. Just kidding, wear this. Just kidding, wear this. Just kidding, wear this. Just kidding, wear this. Just kidding, for real this time, wear this. Or this.
