    I saw this tip on another site and thought I would share:

    "If you eat or get desserts at fast food restaurants, go inside. That way you can grab a handful of the prepackaged "spork" type utensils. Grab a few extra everytime and pretty soon you'll have enough for all your outdoor eating needs. I like them because they are individually wrapped, I.E. sanitary. But most of all, they are free.

    The ones Ive found that I like the best are from KFC. They have a knife, fork, napkin, salt, pepper, and one of those little moist towelettes inside them. Very useful in the field.

    Hope this helps."

    So what do you use in the field?

    I even saw one person post about going to get Chinese food so they could get some chopsticks! lol However I am a fan of the KFC utensils myself... ;)

    Wendy's has the best, heaviest-duty plasticware I have found. I usually get a handful of them each time I stop in there - about once a month. I keep a few spoons at work for my coffee.
    For camping and outdoors, I use the lexan Sporks from Wally's sporting goods - unbreakable and only need one utensil.

    I do the same thing with condiments. I always ask for ketchup & mustard, even I don't plan on using it with that meal (also hot sauces from Taco Bell when I go there). I have a few in my desk drawer at work so in case I need to use some, I've got some.

    I know some people will equate this with "stealing", but I don't. For example, when I go to BK and ask for some ketchup in the drive through, they had me a handful of packets, I might use one, and put the rest away for use later.
