Fred; you're right. We've only broken a single Corelle dish in the 20ish years or so we've been using it. It was a bowl and fell on the floor. Survived the fall but did not survive the 4 cup Pyrex measuring cup landing on top of it…the good thing is that there was no single piece large enough to cut you left intact; the bad thing was the thousands of little pieces. We were finding them for weeks.
We're taking 4 place settings of Corelle on the road with us but will probably end up using paper whenever we eat outside. We're getting the dishwasher in our NH so cleanup will be pretty easy.
OTOH, once we have a Corelle break and go everywhere we may end up with the non-breakable ones as well.
We are keeping 4 small crystal ****tail glasses and are looking for some decent crystal wine glasses without stems; I've seen them before but haven't really searched for them yet. Wine and drinks just don't work out of a paper cup.

I am definitely in the minority - I too was unwilling to give up real plates & glasses - I use crystal plates & glasses for everything. The stemmed wine glasses go in the kitchen towel drawer when moving but everything stays put. All my shelves are lined with the foam no slip mats and doors do lock shut. Also DH has learned to corner very slowly! :)
Still dreaming of full-timing, but I am doing my research! I found this interesting: http://govinowine.com/about.html . It's nice and unbreakable!

We use a similar setup - plastic plates. I'm surprised that so many use Corelle. We had Corelle years ago and also had the misfortune to drop a plate. It literally exploded into a zillion extremely sharp shards of glass that we found with our feet and shoes for months. Unless the composition of Corelle has changed we'd never consider it for any kind of use!

We also use Corelle and we have a few platic glasses. I also picked up one of the divided plates at a military surplus that is great.
