I could either go garage sale-ing and spend $15 on some dishes, or I could spend the whole year running out of clean dishes because I don’t have enough to fill the dishwasher.

Or, of course, just wash the dishes myself. I don’t think that’s realistic, though. I’m having a hard enough time adjusting to no washer-dryer in my own apartment, with the result that I haven’t done laundry in over a month. Clearly I own way too many clothes.
