Curb Cookout Clutter

Curb Cookout Clutter
23 May 2021

Memorial Day weekend traditionally represents the start of the summer season – yeah! For many households, this means weekends filled with cookouts and outdoor family meals.  This summer, don’t let your cupboards and pantries become overrun with odd junk; plastic cups, paper plates and a hundred plastic knives – but only six forks. (Why does that always happen?)

Having a mess of partially used packages of disposable party-ware doesn’t make it easy to whip out the supplies you need for an impromptu barbecue. Our suggestion, keep one good set of re-usable outdoor dishes handy in a plastic tote bin, so you can bring them outside easily. You’ll have a nice-looking outdoor table setting for any occasion, plus the environment will be better off. Below are a few options we find just dishy – no pun intended. :-)
