What should I do with leftover paper napkins and paper plates that I use during the holidays?


Each Thanksgiving and Christmas I use decorative paper plates, dinner napkins and small napkins. I have many stored in a bin that have never been used (from years passed!) Should I re-use them, throw them away (& buy new ones) or give to a charity like Volunteers of America? I am overwhelmed with so many. Any suggestions?

    Thank you dear Faith...I could not stand throwing them away! I have reserved some small paper plates/napkins for this Christmas. God bless :) I so appreciate your taking time to answer this!

    Thank you ChristinS: I just told Faith Reaper I do not have a peace about throwing them away. I have decided to keep some for this Christmas and give the rest to charity. There is a place around the corner. SO appreciate you taking time to respond

    lisavollrath: All answers seem to line up and I so appreciate your advice! They are in good condition and I WILL re-use them. There is an unopened package I will use this year. Blessings, Sparklea
