During the summer, when people are eating out on our concrete terrace dishes get broken. Even the kids prefer stoneware or glass it seems although we try to encourage use of the plastic. But adults are klutzes, too. Has anyone considered a "donation" jar in the kitchen that folks can drop a dollar (or something) into when they break a dish, plate, glass? It might encourage more carefulness and responsibility - plus help pay for the new stuff. (All 5-6 year olds are exempt.;-) Also, having matching dinnerware means it all fits into a commercial dishwasher and shelves easier & faster.

People definitely preferred the glass to plastic. These original have been replaced with purchased glass glasses as needed. I think people have continued to donate stemware, because we no longer run out when wine is served, but very little of it matches. > ... Breakage is not a problem. ... Depends on the floor surface. Until last year, our dining room floor was concrete, and we went through a LOT of glasses (and bowls -- not much plate breakage, for some reason). The pergo flooring has considerably decreased breakage.
