    I do this too!

    But otherwise I'm not too matchy. I do have sets of plates etc that I liked the design of but as pieces have broken it hasn't bothered me if we don't have the full set anymore. We use what's there. All our cutlery pretty much matches as we bought heaps all at once. We have different coloured towels etc and I do like to have matching bottom and top sheets but if the doona or pillows are different I don't care. I tend to just buy what I like, not whether it matches what we already have.

    DP cleaned then shower and used a very expensive Sheridan towel to dry the shower screen that he's sprayed with bleach... I didn't buy a replacement towel for the set because it was slightly darker than the ones we had as our had faded a little. The whole set (about $500 worth) was relegated to the pile of mismatched towels we use for drying the dog.
    Eeep, my DH would be in the Dog house if he did that!

    Cutlery: I have a cutlery set that belongs to each other, but I also have mis-matched tea spoons etc. I wouldn't set the table with mis-matched cutlery though.

    Dinnerware: I have two good dinner sets that match, the other stuff is melamine plates that the kids use, but it all matches.

    Glassware: All sorts, doesn't bother me.

    Coffee mugs: All sorts, doesn't bother me.

    Sheets: All sheets are parts of sets, so all beds are made with matching sheets.

    Table and chairs: Chairs have to match and they do.

    Anything else you can think of: I used to have to have cushions on the couch match, but that's so dated now , so cushions are miss-matched.

    This us too. If still works it stays until dies and often is replaced with the most affordable option.

    I love mismatched. I think it is fun. I also save heaps by getting random stuff from op shops and garage sales

    Each room in my house is colour themed. So each room has its own sets of sheets and doona sets. When beds are made it has to match.

    My living area is also a certain colour theme. My dinner set is matching, I only have one cutlery set so that all matches and my mugs also match. My glassware is an assortment of everything. We have that many glasses that there is no way I'm buying a new one anytime soon.

    One thing I would love to get is a new pots and pans set, atm it's an assortment of everything and anything we've been able to afford to replace with at the time.

    I'm the same. When I was on parental leave, I used to even match pegs to the colour of MCNs.
