CLUTTER: Fancy Dishes on Display
If you have china,
it isn’t worth much now.
These dishes aren’t the status symbol they once were.
Most people rarely use them.
And, your children probably don’t want them,
unless you are making them feel guilty for not wanting them.
This is what Don Aslett author of Clutter’s Last Stand has to say about china:
“To accumulate that one special set of china is a lifetime dream of many.
When they finally get it all, there’s no way they’ll risk breaking, scratching, or losing any of it.
So the nightmare china closet is secured and therein-behind glass- is the treasure.
Who in their right mind would take all this space, time, trouble, and insurance money to display a bunch of dishes?
Think about it… so people can gaze and say, “Oh, your saucer is so captivating. Is it Haviland or Royal Doulton?”
Most good china is used once or twice a year and it takes tons of energy to keep up.”
So ask yourself this:
If you are not using your fancy dishes anymore and none of your relatives want them,
isn’t it time to get them out of your living space or storage space?
Why burden your children with this task after you die?
