Hile Scoop and Bag Clip

We're pretty obsessed with This Thing Now. Here's how to get it into your life.

In an effort to avoid putting things away (my most hated chore), I like to argue leaving everything out on the counter saves time (who wants bother opening a cabinet to get the olive oil?) and that it's a design choice (isn't that salt cellar the cutest?).

And any contraption that supports my lazy rationale is a win. Hence, my affinity for Bú?in's double-duty coffee scoop/bag clip ($25) and filter holder ($45).

The Brooklyn-based, Nordic-inspired coffee shop, which hawks Scandinavian goods in the back of the café, manages to combine big-box gadgetry (the dual combination of scoop and bag clip) with minimalist design, not to mention turning a lowly filter holder (a souped-up napkin holder if we're being honest) into a little geometric delight.

See? Add a wood-rimmed Chemex and you've got yourself a nice little display that never needs to be put away.
