Save money on your plates and make them thrift friendly by keeping them looking good as long as possible so you do  not have to discard them. Do not put extra scratches on plates by using  metal utensils to scrap off food.  Use something soft, like a rubber spatula.

Frugal footnotes:

 

Here are some additional frugal tips to save money on plates.

 

- If you have a set of good china, and you break a few pieces you need, go online to one of the companies that sells used china, find your pattern, and order replacement pieces.  If you get on their mailing list for your pattern, they will sent you specials and updates for your set, including  pieces that are marked down for imperfections.
 
- Pick up some plates that don't break for children and others who are prone to drop them.
