One of the first things needed for kitchens in stock is cookware as you may buy cookware pretty cheap, but it is highly advisable to buy the best quality cookware that you can afford. Cheap cookware will not last very long and will have to be replaced often, whereas high quality items can last for many years. Watch for sales, and consider buying in pieces instead of an entire set if you are on a tight budget and just be sure to buy pieces that can be added to so you'll end up with a matching set. You will also need some dinnerware that you can buy at very reasonable priced items or you can spend a lot. This is an area where you may want to save some money, so you can just start with a cheap set of dinnerware for 4 or 8 people. Now you have to pick up silverware but be careful not to buy really cheap silverware because it will bend and can possibly even break. Quality silverware is not as important as having quality cookware. You can pick up good quality glasses for a reasonable price as thicker glass is usually better, as they will be less likely to break. You may buy a set of insulated plastic cups as well as they are great for everyday use and is unbreakable.
You'll need a set of knives which is very important part of your kitchens in stock. You can get a decent set of knives in the market at affordable prices. There is no need to buy the most expensive set, but never buy the cheapest you can find otherwise you'll only end up in sharpening the blade of the knife. You will also want to have a set of cooking utensils to start out with as these don't have to be fancy, and you can get them at extremely cheap rate.
