How many plates, bowls, glasses and serving bowls does one person need? It depends on how much you entertain. I don’t entertain very often so when I went through my inventory of dishes and serving bowls I had an abundant supply of stuff I didn’t need. Mismatched and gathering dust.
Here’s the key – What do I find myself using all the time? What do I use when I entertain? For example: Even if I don’t entertain all the time I know I will need a good sized platter for turkey or appetizers when I do choose to entertain.
And do I need all of those sets of wine glasses, martini glasses etc. or would a few glasses do when company does come over? I kept a set of wine glasses and two martini glasses.
My purpose is to downsize and free up space in my mind and environment to lift the load of too much stuff.
