  •  We bougt cheap (5+ / 0-)

    plastic plates, bowls, glasses (they were 4 for a dollar at Target - about 30 of each) about 20 years ago for picnics and parties.  Yeah, it's a pain washing them all up after a picnic, but it saves so much money not buying paper plates, napkins, and such. And we're still using the same plastic dishes...

    •  Plastic "silverware" (4+ / 0-)

      Sometimes it really is convenient to use. But I end up collecting all of it I can and washing, reusing. Not much ends of in the trash.

      And it is rare that we use it at all. Once or twice a year, if that.

        if I need disposable flatware, I use chopsticks or these babies. I have fallen in love with the disposable plant starch/bamboo flatware because they can be washed and reused numerous times, but if you just had to toss them, it wouldn't be a tremendous hardship.
