Re: Let's talk dishes

Going along with that "buy an extra box of spoons" suggestion, I also recommend buying an extra set of dessert plates or saucers instead of a whole 'nuther box of place settings for 4 or 8. Littles don't need full size plates, and honestly most of the time adults don't either. Studies have shown that the bigger your plate, the more food you put on it. So if you are watching your weight, you are better off using smaller plates. And even if you have bottomless teens, they can always refill their plates and actually have to think about what additional food they want to put into their bodies.
