Moving out racks up lots of unexpected expenses — and one is the astronomical cost of dinnerware. A good dinnerware set can easily set you back hundreds (yes, seriously). But TikTok discovered a way to get a super-aesthetic dinnerware set for under $10 so you can, you know, actually afford food to put on it.

Target’s budget-friendly Room Essentials line currently includes bowls and plates for just 50 cents a piece. In Instagram-ready colors like baby pink, mint and light aqua, the inexpensive plastic dinnerware has quickly become one of TikTok’s new favorite budget buys.

Sure, they are plastic instead of ceramic, but that just means you don’t have to worry about smashing dishes left and right while washing up. You can get four plates, four cereal bowls, four low dinner bowls (perfect for pasta), four tall tumblers and four stout tumblers for just $10.

TikTok users especially love one piece in the line: the pink cereal bowl that every Gen Z 20-something seems to own.

“I’ve decided that these pink bowls from Target are, like, a universal experience,” TikTok user @squilliamsfanciestson posted in a viral TikTok with more than 1.9 million views. If you are 20 and you just moved out of your parents house, you have this pink bowl. I know you have this pink bowl.”

Check out the super-aesthetic dinnerware for yourself — and stock up your cabinets for less.
