Having a new baby can be time consuming to say the least. Add a house full of kids and you learn early on in the early days that simplicity is the key.

For me, one thing that Works-for-Me is paper plates and cups. I use them whenever I can---breakfast, lunch and snacks. It makes clean up a snap---just throw the plates away and rinse the cups out before putting in the recycling bin. Having a sink full of dirty dishes is one less thing to worry about.

To me, the $4 I spend on plates and the $3 I spend on cups is WELL worth it. It Works-For-Me!!!

Head on over to We Are THAT Family for more Works for Me Wednesday.

I agree w/ you on the paper plates & cups thing! In my last two pregnancies, I was on bedrest for a while, and cutting down on the dishes really helped a lot. :)

So nice to see you posting more often, Judy! :) I missed you!

We have our first baby on the way (any day now) but thank goodness we have the rule that I cook and hubs cleans up after dinner. I won't need to use this tip then. But thanks for sharing anyway!

I totally agree with you! I don't have a new baby now but I still use paper plates when I can! We use them mostly for lunches and it helps the kids in getting their own lunch and less clean up as well so we can move on to the next thing for school.

I get my paper plates from Sam's club. Its 600 of them in pkg. for $16.28, basically 3 cents a plate. :)
