As our day-to-day lives are changing, many of us are spending more time at home — with our families, in our kitchens — than ever before. But between balancing work and home life (and home schooling life) all in one place, it can be difficult to prioritize cooking up delicious meals every single day.
Not to mention, with back-to-school on the horizon, schedules will soon get hectic and time will become limited. That’s why, meal prep this fall is going to be more critical than ever before. It’s not only essential to eating healthy, but also staying organized during the school year.
From chic, durable cookware and bakeware, reusables, meal prep containers, handy kitchen appliances, cutlery and gadgets, here are a few essentials to add to your list of stay-at-home essentials.
