We have been married about 6 months and already I am plotting to be rid of our (at least to me) expensive new dishes. Seriously, they are pretty but HUGE (as in the dinner plates keep our cabinets from closing) heavy, made of ceramic and break incredibly easy. I feel bad because each 4 place settings was like $50 but I am so sick of these massive things! Seriously, the salad plates are only slightly smaller than normal dinner plates and the bowls are more like buckets. But then I feel ungrateful for what we were given but I just want to get my single lady Corelle plates back! I had them for two years and didn’t break a thing. In 6 months I have 2 broken salad plates, a broken bowl and a broken mug. Please tell me I’m not the only one who regrets something they registered for!

Don’t feel badly! I would sell them if I could, before I broke another and then go buy the ones I loved. I’m sure whoever gave them to you would want for you to be happy in the end.

I am seriously considering it. Especially because we live in a college town and lots of people are about to move back into apartments and need dishes, so they don’t care if it is a full set anyway! Now if I can convince Darling Husband that is the best plan….

Bummer… at least you’ll be a more savvy consumer when you pick out your next set!
Honestly though, they’re not too expensive, so I wouldn’t feel terribly bad (but that’s my own opinion). It does suck that they’re “your wedding gifts” so new ones won’t have quite the same sentimental aspect.
Sell and move on though, no point being stuck with something that’s causing you annoyance.

Yes, our coffee maker.
It is a really nice one and got mostly good reviews on all the websites….however, the negative reviews all said the same thing: it spontaneously catches fire and the company doesn’t replace it!!! What?? So yeah, it is going back…unopened, thank goodness.
Any suggestions for a non fire hazard coffee maker? 🙂
