This is a series of articles showing up throughout the summer in regards to ideas and strategies that I come up with or utilize to make the time the kids are home that much easier!
Now, I can't take credit for this idea. My mom did this when we were growing up one summer. Now I understand why!
Every day, we'd go through EVERY.SINGLE.CUP. in the blasted house. Some only used for a quick sip. Others left on the table half full of Kool-Aid or (ugh) milk. And, really, it's just crazy.
At Wal-Mart last night, I picked up some nice, sturdy PLASTIC cups on clearance (4 for $.25 KACHING) and wrote the kids' names each on a cup. Now they each have their OWN cup to use throughout the day, and I'll make sure they're washed each night.
Now no more asking "Who's drink is this on the table!" That alone was worth the quarter.
