Living sustainably on a budget: plates and bowls

When faced with the task of feeding 6 people 3 meals a day, plates and bowls were a main concern. In order to not be constantly washing dishes we need enough dishes to be able to make it through an entire day of meals without being left with just the counter to eat off of. 

Instead of trying to find 8 or more dinner plates, smaller plates, and bowls on Craigslist, eBay, or in used stores I decided to buy two sets of dishes. I chose plain, timeless, white dishes that are easily replaceable if we break a few.

Although buying them used may have been cheaper, I wanted something that would last long after I am out of college in two years. It is also difficult to find enough of each size dish at a low price unless you get incredibly lucky.
