Crystal glassware and china are two categories of stuff that I see a lot in the homes I’m called to help declutter and organize. Most times, the crystal is either on display in cabinets, housed in a cupboard that is rarely opened, or in boxes inherited from a family member or left unopened after a move.
Often times, people might “intend” to use their crystal for special occasions. So maybe they are used twice a year, if at all. I suggest on making a decision one way or another. Either keep them and use them to enjoy their beauty, or donate them to a grateful recipient or charity. Either way, they can be enjoyed.
Think about meal times and treating yourself to the beauty of crystal for yourself and your family. Everyday can be a “‘special occasion”.
