After shifting to a new place, getting the right equipment’s to start life in a new city can make a big difference.

Here is a quick guideline for you to follow when you hit the stores.
Multi-purpose containers are a saviour when it comes to stacking your pulses and spices and everything that comes in the wide umbrella of a kitchen. Try getting containers in sets of six with at least two variations in sizes to maintain uniformity on your racks.
