Do you use paper plates or real plates?

I go back and forth on these things. When I don't feel like having to do dishes, I'll use paper plates. However, there are times when I don't want the trash sitting in the house. I guess it's a personal issue.

I think using paper plates is just a waste of money and resources. I use real plates and wouldn't use paper plates ever. They're so cheap and so wasteful. People that use them constantly spend a lot of money on them when they'd save a few hundred dollars simply by learning how to wash real dishes. I don't get their appeal really.

I never use paper plates, always real plates. I don't mind doing the washing up, it's worth it to use real plates. I don't have a dishwasher so I just wash up the old fashioned way but it works!

Most of the time I use regular plates even though I hate washing dishes. I did however buy some paper plates last night. We were having pizza for dinner and I did not want to wash a bunch of dishes for pizza.

I usually use real plate because they are be used again and again. But sometimes when I feel really lazy or lots of people coming for party then I will use paper plate.

I always like using real plates. But I dont like doing the dishes.I hate it when it all piles up especially on days when we have lots of guests. Those days, I'd rather use paper plates. Choosing the nice thick kind is important cause the last thing you want in your food in some shreds of your paper plate,lol! Still in times when its just me and my husband, we still use the real ones.
