Where do the spoons go?
Does anyone else have this mystery at their house?
I have no idea where our spoons disappear to (although I do blame the kids), I just know that we had gotten down to 3 spoons in our everyday silverware and maybe 8 in our nicer silverware for our family of 6 (who happen to love our cereal and ice cream)! And I can tell you from experience that it's just no good eating your cereal with a soup spoon!
I figured out I could buy replacement spoons to match our flatware on the Internet for fifteen dollars per spoon! That seemed like a hefty price considering I needed like 10 spoons and also taking into account the hard truth that my children are most likely accidentally throwing my spoons away when they clear their spots after eating something in a disposable container, like yogurt or applesauce!
Then I found them -- good quality, elegantly plain, stainless steel spoons on Amazon.com for $11 FOR TWELVE SPOONS! I wasn't immediately sold on having the mismatched flatware in my drawer, but considering the low price, I decided to try them.
The results after two months of the new spoons?
I can't tell you how much I love having a full spoon drawer again, and the quality of the Amazon.com spoons is really good. They feel every bit as sturdy as my more expensive stuff!
Ah, don't you just love opening the drawer and seeing that stack of spoons! Okay, maybe that's just me after doing without for so long!
Are you running low on spoons? I know we are not alone in this, I polled some of my friends with 3 or 4 kids and we all have the same mysterious phenomenon going on with vanishing spoons. Buy yourself a dozen new spoons. It will change your life!
