Too Many Plates and Cups

Do you have a family of four, and twenty-five dinner plates and glasses in your cupboard? It is always good to keep a few extra plates, bowls, cups, and mugs on hand for potential guests, but don’t overdo it. Take the number of people who live in your household and double it. Remember, these things get washed and reused. At the very least, you don’t need 50 coffee mugs.
