This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Because you can never have enough clutter in a kitchen.

Here are some items that I extracted using the cloner, and made them buyable from the catalog, so you can make your sim kitchen uglier. All are quite cheap (around 15§) and can be found under Decorative/Misc. Yes I call them "decorative" although they will not add to your sim's moodlets. Hence the title.

The ice cream carton and juice box are known from the fridge. I gave them new texture, and while they will never go bad and smelly, they can be used for eating, but I don't recommend that.
The stack of envelopes is just a recolor of the magazines object.
The rest are cooking props. You can even place some small objects into the bowl (with moveobjects).

[EDIT 18. Aug.] I added non-interact versions of the objects, so your sims won't eat or clean them up now! Replace the old ones if you want.

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).


Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Now all we need is stuff like the salt and pepper thingy we had in sims 2, and empty jars or something like that. Fruit bowls are also welcome.

I take it you are not a modeler, but at least as a modder maybe this request won't go unnoticed, and I'm sure loads of people want that kind of stuff.

Thank you very, very much for your endeavours to make a home from houses. These kitchen objects are not useless at all. They make a kitchen "alive" and comforatable and - most important - a real home. Kitchen without clutter look like from furniture catalogue and cold. It was high time that somebody took care of the great "small things". Go on by creating this kind of things: better to have a small, cosy house that looks vivid inside than a stylish palace that's absolutely sterile.

Anything more like this is extremely welcome! Spoons? More pots? Anything! Like the tools they use for tinkering! lol Also love that they don't give a moodlet, I was worried someone would make stuff like this as decorations and then all my filthy, run-down, cluttered shacks would be Nicely Decorated lol
