By the time I moved to New York City last fall, three months after graduating from college, I had accumulated a random assortment of cheap dishes, plastic cups, and a variety of mismatched plates that I accidentally packed up from different roomies over the years (sorry!). My collection of mugs alone included like, seven different cat mugs, one from Waffle House that inexplicably ended up in my cabinet, and a customized mug featuring my family's embarrassing Christmas photo from 2009. For basically my entire life, I never gave much thought to my ~eclectic~ collection of dinnerware. It got the job done and that was good enough for me.
