Mainly big gatherings or when I'm feeling really lazy, so not to often.

Lately I have been using them daily. A friend of mine gave me a bag of 300 that they didn't need. I am not going to let them get dusty!

Honestly it's never occurred to me to use them for anything other than kids parties. I couldn't justify spending money on paper plates when I have cupboards full of plates and bowls that I can use for free.

That makes sense too....we get them really cheap here because we buy them at a huge discount place called costco so they are very inexpensive.

Maybe once a month. I run dishes everyday so we don't usually run out of regular dishes, and I have a big stack of plastic ones the kids use.

Funnily enough a Costco opened up about a half hour drive from my house yesterday. Second one in Australia.

Generally I use real plates but since having these paper plates I am using them. But once they run out. I probably won't get more. Just because I don't like throwing the money in the trash literally.
