While I was organizing my kitchen back in January I went ahead and picked out a silverware pattern I eventually wanted to purchase. $2.50/utensil. I haven't ordered them yet and I'm glad I waited. Someone recently stole some of our flatware. I'm not pointing fingers but we have a 2 year old in the house. If I had matching flatware I would be mad/sad/far from glad right now. I was able to replace the missing utensils easily at Goodwill, for 29¢ each. If I find any of these being used to dig in the backyard I'll happily say "Keep it! I know where to get more."
