If so, I couldn't find it. Anyway, here's one for you: Even if it's just two of you, get silverware service for 16.

For years (decades) my wife and I just had eight forks, eight knives and eight spoons. (Well, plus those big spoons and little spoons.) My parents originally received this silverware as an engagement present and passed it along to us years ago.

Well guess what? My parents had also received a nearly identical set as another engagement gift. So now we have both sets of eight and never run out.

Totally changed everything.

My house apparently eats silverware. We buy a new set every few years.  I am always amazed that other people can keep up with it. I blame the kids.

My house had an issue is silverware disappearing, then I became single again and the issue ceased. 

 

The greatest life hack would be to know how to tell when every fruit and vegetable type was at peak ripeness.

Ditto.  And thanks for the reminder, I should pick up another set soon.  (and actually throw away the nasty cheap crap that sneaks in from somewhere, eating is too good an experience to use garbage flatware)

We just keep all the plasticware from fast food & take out. Once it finally breaks we toss it & still have more than we need. Yes, we have most of 2-sets of metal cutlery too, but why wear out the good stuff?
