Life's too short for dishes that can't go in the dishwasher.

I know right? At the time, when we got married, I really didn't think much about it -- we didn't have a dishwasher in our apartment. Lol.

But I also didn't have a place for the china either.

The one time husband used the good crystal I just about died.

I think it's time I use it or seriously consider selling it all.

I'm not saying everyday but do you really want to never use it? If it was me I would use it once a month just cause. Pick a sunday everyone will be there and use the good china. Hand washing dishes once a month is not a huge ordeal.

Nothing makes Hot Pockets and Mountain Dew special quite like the good china and crystal. Tongue

You know, my apartment has a dishwasher, and I've never used it (I've been living here for over 9 years now). It's just simpler to do the dishes by hand -- and they get cleaner. Call me a luddite, I guess.

If I lived alone it wouldn't be an issue.

But.....damn kids use around 10 glasses a day, three coffee mugs and 5 small plates oh and maybe bowls.

That's just the kids. My mother in law runs her dishwasher once a month if she's lucky.

We run ours sometimes twice a day. Consider

Ya, for a single guy with simple (some would say boring) eating habits, keeping up with the dishes ain't that hard.

You'd love me, then.

I've been known to take a single plate, knife and fork and use only those for days at a time, and I drink almost exclusively from plastic bottles, which I reuse constantly.
