The bowls above have been my bowls for the last eight years. My dishes did not come with any cereal bowls, so I just ran to Target and got the cheapest set of bowls I could find...these plastic ones were it. For the last several years, I have been wanting some new bowls. However, I have decided to only buy things I love and within my budget. Several weeks ago I found some beautiful bowls at my local market, but they were more than I wanted to spend. Imagine my delight when I went back this week and they were half off.
