Well, he does, but there’s something nostalgic about his mixed business card collection

Here at Krrb we’re constantly immersed in the latest design trends and we’re not mad about that! Often times there are some trends we come across that we can’t seem to agree upon. Today Chrissy and Mateo check out what creative people are doing in terms of exposed storage and decide if they love it, or want to leave it.

At some point closets and dressers start overflowing and you are left with items strewn across the bedroom. I repurposed a ladder bookshelf as storage for my bulky sweaters and at first it looked nice, but soon turned into a disaster. The folded sweaters began to look as if they had a life of their own, spilling off of my shelves and taking over the room. Today we look at a few different ways that people are utilizing exposed storage and decide if we’re fans or not

Move-in day in full swing at colleges around the country and we’re getting nostalgic about our own days on campus. Decorating our dorm rooms, meeting our roommates, sitting down in that lecture hall.

What’s Cooking — Foods You Regularly Toss in the Trash

What's Cooking — Foods You Regular Toss in the Trash

For years, whenever I would buy carrots or turnips I would chop off the greens off and throw it in the trash. That wasn’t edible, obviously. One day I came across a recipe for pesto using these greens and my jaw dropped open. You can eat that? It took a few minutes to process that all along I was throwing good food away. That was immediately followed by concern about what other foods was I wasting.

The fact of the matter is that when you cook you make garbage. Sure those coffee grounds can be recomposted along with banana peels and eggshells, but scraps and odd bits of foods can be repurposed into some edible, nay, something delicious. After all, prices are increasing for quality food and the average American family throws out about $2,000 worth of food a year. And it’s not just in home kitchens, chefs in restaurants around the globe are becoming more conscious about maximizing the use of food to cut down on waste. Just this week, Italian Chef Massimo Bottura is repurposing leftovers from the Olympic Village (estimated to produce 16 tonnes of food waste feeding Olympic teams) to feed people in need in Rio. If that doesn’t inspire you to look mindfully at the way you cook, these recipes will

How To Score Big At Stoop Sales

Welcome to New York City, home of the dollar slice, the Yankees, Coney Island and of course, the stoop sale! There’s no where quite like a perfectly pitched stoop to pass on your secondhand goods to an expectant new owner. With an ever-changing inventory of kitchenware, closet cast-offs and literature of all sorts, we should all be overjoyed that Brooklyn Stoop Books have taken it upon themselves to document those up-for-grabs hardbacks, paperbacks and other reading wonders found on stoops throughout the borough.

I spent this past weekend welcoming stoop sale season with open arms and an open wallet. I had seen signs advertising Saturday sales and I knew the warm weather would bring sellers to sidewalks everywhere. So I strapped on a pair of comfy sandals and trekked through the neighborhood — and the day was a success. As stoop sale season continues, you’ll want to keep your eyes out for finds in your own neighborhood, free or otherwise. I spent a total of $20.50 and walked home with a vintage tin, two pieces of army surplus goods, a nearly new pair of Timberland boots, a wood engraver and a handkerchief featuring the map of Los Angeles
