Where have all my spoons gone?
I love a good cup of tea and when I look in the draw for a teaspoon, they’re all gone, again!
I’ve lost so many teaspoons and tablespoons over the years, they are like socks in our house. I’ve had to throw a crazy amount out too because annoyingly my kids think they are their tools to use in the back garden. You name it, building sandcastles and mudpies, digging in my flowerbeds, they have done it. I have bought them buckets and spades but my shiny spoons must be extremely appealing.
Also, at school, I send them with a yoghurt for lunch. Surprisingly they always manage to come home with the empty yoghurt pot and even the lid but never the spoon. So after years of buying a silly amount of spoons. I decided I wasn’t going to be losing any more.
Here are some of the reasons for my metal spoon shortage…
Mud Pies (we all did it)
Sandcastles why don’t my kids use the tools/toys and leave my spoons alone, huh?
So I bought these
I know you think what are you doing? But I still have my shiny tablespoons and teaspoons for my teas but I only send the kids to school with plastic ones for their yoghurts. If they really want to dig around in the flowerbeds in the garden, build sandcastles or make mudpies, then they know that these very cheap plastic spoons are allowed outside.
It’s nice to have my metal spoons back and be able to make myself a brew.
The price for these plastic spoons aren’t that bad and they last a lot longer than you think. I’m all for recycling and you might think that these would have to be replaced often but I’ve had my 100 plastic spoons for over 6 months and I always put them in the dishwasher. I’ve added in some links to Amazon where I bought them from and as you’ll see below the prices are very affordable.
