Thrifty Finds

Picked this clear platter up at Goodwill. I have another one that I bought last year just like it. Can you ever have too many glass platters? I enjoy taking treats to school to share with my team on these platters. It has a nice lip around the edge so nothing will fall off and if for some reason it did break I would be out $5.oo. A lot less than my crystal I received at my wedding.
Speaking of weddings I have one coming up that I need to get a gift. However, the registry is so expensive. I am having a hard time justifying spending $150 for a place setting of china. All that is left in my price range is cooking utensils. I can't show up with one pair of tongs or slotted spoon. Any creative ideas?

Many couples who register that way are looking gift cards so that they can get the most bang for their buck. Tie one to a dry soup mix or a package of Beer Bread.
