I've been wanting some white everyday dishes for quite sometime now. Our current everyday's, while saying microwave and dishwasher safe, haven't really held up that well.
Most of the plates have chipped edges, as do the coffee cups. I don't really MIND eating or drinking off of chipped dishes, but it is a little embarrassing to offer your mom or neighbor a chipped coffee cup. Right? Plus, lets face it, white dishes are just classic, and while I like our blue and whites, I'd like something less busy.
Well, we've been trying to follow the Dave Ramsey financial peace program, so the only extras we've bought lately have been baby related. Even those have been few and far between and only at extreme deals.
I found a pretty and inexpensive set of dishes at Walmart that I wanted, but at $29 for a set of four, we'd need at LEAST 2 sets. That's at LEAST $60, which might not sound like much, but technically we've forbid ourselves from spending anything extra. (By the way, being so frugal is really working - in just one month of saving.. printing coupons, no eating out, no extra anything- we've managed to fully fund our $1000 emergency savings plan AND pay off a small balance on our Lowes card. Sweet. We felt so strapped before and I felt like it would take MONTHS to reach the required $1000 for the initial emergency plan, and I had no idea doing that in ONE month would be possible.. never know what you're capable of until you try, right? I guess this just shows how liberal we were with spending before and we didn't even realize it.)
Well, in our mailbox this afternoon was an ad from Ikea. We're so lucky to live within a 40 mile radius of one of these stores. I remember having to drive over 3 hours when I was a kid.
Does anyone have these and can you tell me if they chip easily?
Thanks in advance!
