    I use reusable decorative plastic tubs that look like they belong in a movie theater.

    For those of us that are rather "overly endowed" in the nose area....Kleenex are not a real option.
    I'd be better off just plunging one nostril, and giving a big blow right on my hands/shirt/pants and surrounding area. I sometimes think I need one of the suction thingies like my dentist has.

    I'll use the same coated small paper plate for a week to heat up a microwaveable sausage biscuit. (my breakfast of choice lately) When I finish the biscuit, wipe the crumbs into the trash and the plate's good to go for the next day.
    When I was married and we used paper plates, to clean up after dinner my wife would scrape and I would erase.

    I will agree, but I will add that Chinet plates are the Velcro shoes of dinnerware.

    Over the sink. Damn. *makes note*

    I NEVER had sardines any other way than eating them out of the can. (I love sardines, the cats love me)

    I think everyone agrees directly from the can standing up is the best way to deeply enjoy baked beans.

    I remember being stuck without power after a storm for 10 days when I was 9 and I still like Chef Boyardee ravioli straight out the can...

    I eat out of the pan. I’m not dressing fancy to go for a run.

    Eating TV dinners from aluminum trays while listening to the Beatles reminds me of my childhood.

    We're the first place in the world to ban the selling and usage of plastic knives, cutlery and plates.
    We've always been a leader in this area and re-cycled since the mid 70s.

    I just ate an apple fritter off of a paper plate with a plastic fork and drank milk from the jug. Clean up was a breeze lol.

    So, what about just making a sandwich and serving it on a napkin?

    No.

    Paper plates are the Huggies of dinnerware. You throw 'em out after only one use.

    Plastic take-out containers are the sweatpants of dinnerware.
