Works for Me Wednesday

I really love Dollar Tree, especially in the Spring when they are stocking all their spring and summer items. We went to Dollar Tree last week and I found something that I had to buy.

We use lots of paper plates in our household for breakfast and lunch, we don't have a dishwasher in our apartment. A couple years ago I had purchased some Straw Paper Plate holders from Wal-Mart. They were OK, but they get dirty, get stuck on clothes, and tear very easily. We ended up throwing them out last summer. We have been "doubling up" on plates since then. I did not like doing this as it "doubles" the expense of paper plates because then we run out twice as fast.

I found some really nice Paper Plate Holders last week at Dollar Tree. They are made of hard, durable plastic, are washable and come in variety of colors. I purchased 3 packs, each pack has 4 holders. I bought the boys "Colors", as we color code things for the boys since they are so close in age.

Here are the pics:

We have been using these daily since Friday and we really like them! It cost me $3 for a total of 12 holders. I am going to go back very soon and get a few more packs. I will save the other packs for summer time picnics and camping. I have learned with Dollar Tree: If you see something you like, buy it in multiples as it might be gone for good the next time you go!!

These Paper Plate Holders WORK for ME!!
