Costco - Mikasa Whitehall 20 Piece Dinnerware Set

I finally found China set I like at Costco.

I've been looking for a dinnerware set for 10-15 years.   I used to complain that nobody seemed to be selling normal looking dinnerwares anymore.  All the plates I see at the stores have weird shapes or they have stupid drawings.  If I find good looking white plates, they tend to be expensive.

I finally found plain white dinnerware set at Costco.  They were only $39.99.

I've been using cheap dinnerware that was given to me from various people.  I was never happy with my plates and bowls, but I had no choice because I couldn't find china I like.

I love my Mikasa's Whitehall 20 piece dinnerware set.  I am still thinking about buying one more set as a backup (or if I marry somebody with 3 kids).   They are just right for me.  They are practical, plain (not artistic or snotty), and cheap.

Update:  I am really happy with these china set.   They even feel good in my hands when I do the dishes.  It a pleasure.... only $39.99. It's ridiculous.  I am loving them.  I wish I can find a Costco version of female for my wife. I don't even know what that means, but it sounds cool.

I took this picture 1 day earlier.  I came home from Costco shopping and looked at the picture again. And I decided to go back to Costco next day to make a purchase.

I've been using these for 10+ years. You see all kinds of different plates and bowls that don't match.  Also they look cheap.

They seem to make my cupboard looks more complete and practical. I feel more settled down with these china.  I feel more satisfied in the kitchen.

PS. You see Homer Simpson coffee mug?  That's my work day coffee mug.  I only use it at work.  It's put away in the cupboard.  That means I took that picture during the weekend.  On weekend I use Sunday coffee mug. 

I shall do a story on my coffee mugs.  I use different coffee mugs for work, home, weekend, driving, tea, hot cocoa, Christmas season, and photography.


Ahh you remembered me -- bought a smile to my face =] yeah i've been uber busy much like you but I still sneak in some downtime to check out your site -- always informative and it's such a relaxed blog. 
lol @ owning the same china set -- good tastes in dishes (and money) i spose hah
my parents currently own a home and i help out with their daily chores when I'm around -- and you're right there is a huge difference between owning a home and renting an apartment when it comes to responsibilities -- i have commitment issues at this point so wont be owning a home for a long time lol
good luck john!

Hey you. long time.

I hope you'll find them at your Costco. Then we'll be using same china. How cool is that? :)

Seriously, I like them dinnerware set. They are really good.

Good for you. Having your own apartment is the best. I don't think I will be this relaxed if I own a house, especially if I have to rent out a room (or two). Right now I don't worry about maintenance, mowing lawn, hot water, dealing with people, and so on. Good times.

Good buy! Especially with the little asterisk in the corner meaning . . . once it's gone, it's gone! (If I remember correctly)
