@iarebridezilla:  long story short… just buy more spoons. buy a lot more spoons. Sometimes its those silly things that drive us nuts… yet they have really simple solutions.

I use spoons like that… and I would not change my spoon use. Everyday I do need a NEW spoon. A clean sanitized-dishwasher-clean spoon. And I need a new spoon for each thing… call it a pet peeve or what not.

My flatware set came with double the teaspoons! My MIL said it’s because they are the most used/lost.

I am still trying to figure out why DH can toss his dirty clothes feet away from the hamper, but can’t manage to put them in the dang hamper!

We are always using up our spoons. I like to eat non-spoon things with spoons because I have a really small mouth and lots of forks are too big to fit (that’s what she said?)

Like I use a spoon for corn and other vegetables, and for eating cake/brownies/soft bread things. I dunno, we use a lot of spoons. I also use them to stir my coffee and tea and that can happen a few times a day.

I ate a chicken pot pie with a spoon yesterday so maybe I just have irrational spoon usage issues myself?

Yeahhh….I need a clean spoon every time.  Yesterday’s yogurt spoon was yesterday’s… We run the dishwasher a lot.

My mystery… how much TP goes missing when he’s around! lol

@iarebridezilla:  Funny post, but I beg to differ about rinsing off yesterday’s spoon. That idea is just gross. Do you have anu idea how many bacteria can build up overnight? That’s why we use hot water and detergent to wash dishes. Rinsing just doesn’t cut it.

I would simply go buy some more spoons.

Mine uses too many cups.  Like 4 or 5 a day.  We have 8. I feel your pain!

At least your husband puts the spoons in the dishwasher – that is a plus! Mine leaves his dirty dishes beside the sink, next to the dishwasher. Everyday the dish fairy comes an places them in the dishwasher for him.

This is SO me. We have two people and 24 spoons so I use them like it’s my job. If I’m warming up a bowl of soup, it is not unusual for me to go through three spoons. I can’t explain it. I’m weird (and so is your husband apparently)

We use our spoons too – more me than him since he’ll take a dirty one out of the sink or dishwasher, whereas I’ll use a clean one for every little thing!


For that reason, we have two sets of teaspoons and two sets of tablespoons.

Five spoons? Oh boy don’t look in my dishwasher! There are probably ten spoons in there! Granted I have tea spoons, ice tea spoons, and then the large and small spoons that came with my silverware set plus oh about 4 more spoons that are part of a casual dinnerware set and 5 more that someone gave me that are like larger teaspoons.

For me..let’s see 1-morning tea & coffee, 1-lunch yogurt, 1-afternoon tea coffee = 3/day on a workday probably all small teaspoons though..on a weekend add another one for cereal!

I have enough not to have to wash them all the time.What can I say? Some of us like to spoon.

My FI on the other hand leaves mugs all over the apartment. He uses them to drink milk out of and constantly gets new ones. Or leaves them in odd places – so I put in dishwasher, then later he’ll ask me “Where’s my mug I left in the bathroom?”…Um well it’s in the dishwasher! LOL
