A while back someone suggested I get smaller dinner plates since we were trying to cut back on our serving sizes. It didn’t seem like a good idea at the time because, as much as I love kitchen gadgets, things like plates and glasses are just necessary things and they don’t excite me. I guess because I would feel bad if I broke something I really like or something that was expensive . . plain Jane plates . . it doesn’t bother to me if one accidentally gets broken, though I can’t remember the last time we broke a plate.
I was tired of looking at my ancient white Corelle and decided to find some new smaller plates. I made the mistake of telling Vince I was looking for new smaller plates. Mr. Bargain Shopper took over and he found all kinds of discounted plates. NO! I know what I want and I’m not getting something just because it’s on sale.
I wanted Fiesta Luncheon Plates and I wanted them all to be different colors. Vince found some on sale . . four . . all the same color. NO! I don’t want all the same color. To save his life, he could not figure out why I had to have all different colors . . just because that’s what I wanted!
For about $5 more . . total, I was able to get what I wanted. That will bother him every time he uses one of these plates!
I’m betting that lime green one gets lots of use! :)
