Hi Dave Finally something I can respond to in this forum! I’m
still a metal neophyte, but I am raising three kids so I know my
separated plates. Great idea - The plastic version of your Chinet
plates are available at stores such as Target, or Pic 'N Save,
even some grocery stores - look in the picnic supplies section.
Also, some frozen dinners come with divided plastic trays (yes, I
know too much salt, but without modern food science I would have
no time to create).
Also, about clutter … Creative clutter is not a problem, unless
it turns into self-sabotage… unless the clutter takes on a
life of its own and keeps you/me from doing any real work. I’m
not clutter-shy (3 kids), but there is a difference between the
clutter we acquire during creative bursts and the clutter we
accumulate from apathy or worse.
BTW, my kids are turning into great little jewelers on their
own. They pound pennies with me and create wonderful necklaces.
They love your divided plate idea!
Regards to all - and Happy New Year! Mia
