Modular-Shelving-System

One of the reasons we spend so much of our hard-earned money (if you consider paychecks accrued by writing about the latest bacon-covered foods and iPhone accessories “hard-earned”) on stuff for our home is because we get tired very quickly of how our place looks. We’ll put up a print, get a new coffee table or run some lighting and after awhile we just get sick of it. This is exactly why this Modular Shelving System is right up our alley. The bamboo pieces can be connected with the pegs in a dizzying array of combinations, leaving you with a world of possibilities for storing your Blu-rays, books or CDs (if you still use those things).

Laguiole-Oyster-Knife-IF2

While you can go all MacGyver and shuck oysters with a screwdriver or other household tool, we highly recommend you invest in a good oyster knife. Why? Well, for starters, it’s safer. The best oyster doesn’t taste so hot when you’ve got something sharp stuck in your palm. Secondly, it makes the process easier and a bit more refined. Laguiole is an iconic name in knife making and the French brand has you covered when it comes to shucking thanks to the Laguiole Oyster Knife. Made of 420 stainless steel and complete with a wood handle, the Oyster Knife measures 6 ¼” and makes easy work of even the toughest shell. You just need to supply the cocktail sauce.
