To learn from our past and to live for our future.

We are not (I repeat, not) a paper-free kitchen family. Our daughter has food allergies and the risk is too high to not use paper towels, napkins or paper plates. For a long time I was feeding snacks with half of a paper plate. That got a little wasteful and expensive. Now, I will use napkins instead, unless it's yogurt or something messy. I have found that after the holidays that decorative napkins go on sale very cheap. After Valentine's Day, I found several at different stores for just a quarter each for a pack of 20 or more napkins. Hearts are good year round and make snack time a little fun, too. I also bought disposable heart plates for 37 cents for a pack of 10 at Wal-Mart for our little one's birthday, which is in August. I spent just under $1.50 for 40 plates.
I would be willing to bet there will be some nice flowers and spring-type napkins available after Easter.
