Anthropology's latte bowls are the perfect size. I use them almost every day. I use them for cereal, decorating, as a candy dish and for serving side dishes. They come in almost every color imaginable and they are microwave/dishwasher safe.
I find it very important to keep blank note cards on hand at all times. They are perfect for letter writing , birthday cards, wedding cards and most importantly thank you notes. I love the plain pink note cards from Papyrus.
Because I am an organizational freak, I absolutely love the Container Stores clear drawer boxes! They are great for organizing socks, underwear, bras and tank tops.
