A cup with lid in a pinch

Have you ever lost a child's straw cup?  I have hundreds of times, and now I am only down to a couple of them.  I did however, see an alternative tonight.  If you need a cup with a lid in a hurry, go to your fridge (or if you like me, go to your cabinet), and get out a sour cream container, or any plastic. round container with a lid that is taller rather than squattier - you know what I mean.  Clean it well, punch a straw hole in the top, put the drink in it and pop in the straw - presto.

Now, please do not think that this will be spill proof.  Let's face it, cups that say spill proof themselves are not spill proof.  We are talking not losing the entire drink on the floor or seat if it takes a tumble - don't be too picky.

Dishwasher Powder

I discovered when reading one of the volumes of "The Tightwad Gazette" that you can easily get by with only 1 tbsp of powder instead of filling the whole stinkin cup - and it's true!!!

I have not forgotten

I promise I have not forgotten this blog, I just haven't really come up with anything new lately.  But, after 250 posts, that was bound to happen.  I am working on some new stuff though, so I will be posting again soon!
