You may be looking at my pics asking "what is that". Well that is my solution to not washing 100 different cups every day. I bought tiles that each kid could personalize and put there cup on when they are done getting a drink. When they come back to get a drink later instead of getting a new cup they can just get their cup off of their tile and use it again. At the end of the day I wash all of the cups and we start new the next day. I get so tired of my counter tops being cluttered with cups because no one knows whose cup is whose. I went to the local hardware store and picked up 6 ceramic tiles off of a clearance end cap for only .26 cents.(WooHoo Bargain) I then bought a paint pen and little felt dots for the back so they wouldn't scratch anything. I let each one of my kids and my hubby decorate their own tile. I think they turned out really cute and so far it is working to help minimize the cup problem. A little fingernail posish remover will remove the paint if you make a mistake or just decide to redo them:-)
I have them lined up along the counter by the sink. They take up a little counter space but not enough to matter. I wish I would have thought of this a long time ago.
