How would you suggest I divide my shopping budget?

RickDagless | Jun 21, 2010 08:11 PM

I'm a recent college graduate and I'll be moving into my own apartment soon. Currently, I've been using my flatmates' pots, pans, knives, etc. so I'll need to stock my kitchen when I move. I do have some plates, bowls, and a slow cooker but little else.

Over the past few years, I've set aside around $4-500 for my kitchen. How would you recommend I divide up this money? I don't need much advice on what specifically to buy, but I would like to hear your recommendations on how much I spend on pots/pans, how much on knives, etc.

If it helps, I'm a vegetarian, so most of my meals are heavy in legumes.
