If you do a lot of cooking from scratch, it's important to have the right tools. You can find a lot of good cooking items at thrift shops and discount stores, but a good set of knives will probably not be there.
But Living Social has a great deal on an excellent knife set. You can get this 18-piece knife set for only $35! The set includes carving, chef's, chop-and-scoop, filet, paring, and cheese knives; two all-purpose slicers; eight steak knives; and a pair of kitchen shears.
To get your set, head over to Living Social and find this deal under Nationwide Deals.
