As I strolled by the Costco housewares department, I noticed a stack of boxes with 8 German/Riedel-made wine glasses. Like a multi-purpose, Syrah glass, they're suitable for white or red wines. Advertised as break resistant, lead-free and dishwasher friendly.
Oh yeah! The convincing part is that the box of 8 glasses is only $18.
Do I need glasses? No! Did I buy a box? Yes!
