Do you know what I think is the biggest ripoff around the holidays? Friggin Christmas platters.
Now that I have a kid, I’m starting to host more family gatherings, and I just don’t see the reason to continue these asinine traditions that hold no real value. Why am I supposed to spend $60 on a goddamn Pottery Barn serving plate that will live in my pantry for 364 days of the year just so my mother in law doesn’t judge the hell out of how I serve my turkey?
BUT - I found a secret hack so you can get holiday platters without breaking the bank.
Go to your local Party City and walk down their tableware aisle. Around the holidays it will be filled with festive items. I got this piece four years ago for $2.50.
Yes it’s plastic, no, it can’t go in the dishwasher, but who cares?! $2.50, still looks great, still going strong. Check it out - I guarantee you’ll find something gold.
