If you have a set of fancy dishes that you only use when guests come over, it’s time to reconsider your dish situation. Instead of saving the best for special occasions, decrease your collection of dishes and use the special ones all the time. One again, you are aiming, as much as possible, to spark joy. You may not be able to choose your fridge or even some smaller yet essential kitchen appliances, but you certainly can inject a little joy at each meal by loving the dishes you use. “Make the dishes you love the ones you use every day,” Kondo writes.
