    My wedding was a month ago, and I am still settling in.  I have started using the tea kettle some of the pots and pans.  New sheets, pillows and mattress pad, but that’s it!

    We have used a lot of stuff but not everything. Some stuff will just have to wait for when we live in a bigger place, which will be in a year (hopefully).

    oh heck no! lol We got more money and gift cards than we did actual gifts, but there were a few items we were given that are things most households have, but only use once in a while. We’re coming up on the one year mark, but we’ve been too busy this past year to have used everything already – especially the serverware for entertaining.

    I said "all" because litterally the only thing we haven’t used yet are some cheese plates that I know we WILL use. We regularly bring out the china! We’ve been married about 9 months and have used our china about five times. 

    But don’t worry if you can’t use everything now. My brother and SIL were in a similar situation. Immediately after getting married, they moved across the country and into a small apt. At least half of their gifts sat in her parent’s closet for six years until they moved back and into a house. But they use everything now and love it!

    I’ve used all my gifts. Most were kitchen stuff, and we live in a teeny apartment, BUT, I love to cook. I even moved stuff to make room for my new mixer and my new dishes. I love all my stuff.

    We’re moving to a house so we can have more room, LOL.

    Mine have all seen the light of day…but the only thing we haven’t used is the monogrammed table runner.  I forgot we had it. 🙂
