Return the China or Buy More?

Recommended Posts

Jamy if you are getting china from family and you don't think you will use it then return it and get something else like a dyson or something.

I don't think China has to be super expensive, and it can be something nice to have but if you are going to have to buy a whole bunch and spend money on something you don't think you will use, then just wait for the china you will get passed down.

That's what I'm thinking....and the few occasions my mom pulled hers out I had to walk around the table on eggshells as I was reminded how important it was. I'm too kick back for that...anything that can't be replaced easily bothers me and then it isn't fun anymore, it's nervewrecking smile41.gif

It seems that china is for other people - like "I'm having so and so over, get out the china." I know some people like it themselves too, and I love a pretty table but I also love Le Creuset and I've been eyeing this french oven that makes my heart smile...lol It's $260 but if I returned the china it would be free. That's a lot for one pot but I would use it often and love to cook. I can eat off of almost anything but I can't cook in just anything. That's my fetish.

Oh, and Galit how cool that we picked the same pattern...it really is beautiful. Maybe I'll keep the 2 sets for romantic dinners between DH and I?

OK I'm driving myself crazy now fryingpan.gif

I would keep it and continue to collect it for birthdays, if it goes on sale, etc.

 

We did not register for formal China, and in a way I regret it. Our everyday plates are formal enough that we can dress them up, but tomorrow night we're having a dinner party, and it sure would be nice to have some real china for the occasion.

It's rediculous to drive yourself crazy over a bunch of plates! It sounds to me like you already know what you want to do, so just return the china and get the french oven of your dreamscheer2.gif

I really forget we have it so we may just take it back....if I ever make a move I'll fill you guys in :P

funny this was bumped. we registered for china the week before my shower just to appease my in-laws. the only set we got was from my students about a week ago...so we don't know if we return it, or use all the gift cards to buy the other 7 sets!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
