When I bought two snowflake plates at the grocer in November, Danny immediately fell in love. Suspecting they would be clearenced after Christmas, I went back this morning and bought four, three piece place settings to pack away for when he leaves home. They were .74 cents each. The next place I visited had snowmen plates and bowls for .50. I bought those as well.
My plan is to pack them away with some local newspapers from our county, as print papers probably won't exist by then. Hopefully, he'll enjoy looking back and remembering the winter of 2011.
