Maybe I should be like this retro Dixie Cup mom in this ad, instead...
I do drink out of fancy glass glasses and eat off fancy glass plates all from thrifty buys so they can be broken (which they inevitably are! ) without any big financial loss. That way I can say, with hoity toity attitude, to the family as I wield the broom and dustpan, "I can't have anything nice with you kids around here!"
They just reply, "Mom needs to go hunt down more cheap pretty glassware!"
Do you think they have caught on to the fact that I actually enjoy the opportunity to hunt and gather pretty things on the cheap????
It is funny when my kids take a shine to one certain cup or bowl in the thrifty mix and claim it as their own. When that piece gets broken it is a whole different story.
