  • I don't. I feel guilty when I use them. I think that they are wasteful trash. JMO.

  • I use them for things like pizza and take out sometimes but I prefer real dishes... less garbage to take out each week :) but then again I have a dishwasher now... at our old house where we didn't have a dishwasher, it was paper plates all the time.

    as for the constantly eating child... I reuse plates for my kids... especially if it's like a little bowl with some dry cereal in it for snack, it gets used again.

  • I too use them for the amount of dishes you would use during one day! If I had to wash all those dishes I had to I would be constantly doing dishes.

  • We use them alot, especially when we lived with my mom. There were 11 of us in the house and my mom and I were the only ones who ever did dishes so we went to paper! Now that we have our own place we use regular more often.

  • I can't believe how wasteful people are-really-I am surprised. I mean, once in awhile, ok. But, everyday-thats lazy. Just wash some dishes.
