Tiny Everything!

I  bought myself a fun little gift today! We went to Bed Bath & Beyond today to pick up some more cocktail flatware and I found these wonderful little plates and bowls! I couldn't resist. To give you an idea of just how small these puppies are, I posted some pictures below of the new plates and bowls compared to my current sandwich plates. Can you believe that?! The dish on the left is an average sized sandwich plate!  
Each small plate was $1.99. The little bowls were an even better deal. Each bowl came with a spoon for $1.67. The most expensive piece was the box of cocktail forks that had 12 forks for $14.99.
My old sandwich plate vs. My new tiny dessert/appetizer plates!
Bed Bath and Beyond lets you use as many coupons as you'd like as long as you meet the requirements of the coupon. I was able to use 1 $5 off coupon along with 2-20% off coupons. What a steal!

According to our paperwork from the nutritionist one year after the surgery, we will be able to eat about 8 oz of food volume per meal. That is so crazy to me, but I don't care! I'm so happy to be losing weight and to have help controlling my portions with the band!


  1. I found your blog a few days ago and read everything from the start up until today and just wanted to say that I find your posts very encouraging. I have an appointment with my PCP for a full physical in preparation for the surgery and reading how you and your hubby are doing this together and actually losing the weight is amazing. I hope that when I finally get banded I'll have the same determination you both have. Thanks for the posts and happy new year!!!

  2. so much more grown up than my toddler dishes!

  3. GreenGiant - Welcome to my blog and thank you so much for commenting! Having people here to hold me accountable helps me so much. If you have questions as you go through the process let me know. I'm trying to write as many posts as possible every day so I don't forget the little things that happen every day!

    Jenn - aren't they so cute!!?? I just love them.

  4. Thank you! I'm sure I'll have questions after I see my doctor for the first time. And those are adorable plates!!! It's making me want to go out and buy small versions as well. :)

  5. I'm currently on the BB&B website looking for these plates or at least something similar in size. Do you recall the brand name of the set? Thanks!

  6. Here is the link to the bowls. I was able to buy these open stock for $1.67 a piece with a spoon. That might have been a store only thing.

    OR maybe our store just had it mixed up, because here's a clear set for the same price w/ spoons:

    This is the closest thing I could find for plates. Mine aren't fitz and floyd, but they are the same price, and I just measured them and they are 5 1/2 inches wide:

    And here are the forks!

  7. Oh my lord these are adorable!! Thank you so much for the links! :)
