For this week’s Works for Me Wednesday, I have a tip that is especially helpful to those with larger than the average families, or for those families with younger children. On a recent trip to Sam’s Club, I spent a little time in the catering area. You know that part of the store where they sell really large pans. I spied a box with 12 plastic tumblers in it. They held 20-ounces. Suddenly, a light bulb went off, and I thought of the mismatched glassware we had in our cabinet. Over the years we have had nice glassware, and I mean “glass” in the word “glassware.” So our glasses were a bit mismatched, and I only had a small number of those lovely Tupperware plastic cups. So I bit the bullet and bought the set of 12 matching plastic tumblers! Those same tumblers that you would see in a restaurant setting. After bringing them home, my family OOOOHHHH–ed and AAAAAHHHH-ed over them, and we washed them and put them to use. They are WONDERFUL!! Now all 7 of us (baby gets a sippy cup still) have matching cups at dinner, and it does not matter if one falls from the table. One of the most attractive features of our new “plasticware” was the price! They were quite affordable. Next time you visit your local warehouse-type store, check out some of their catering supplies. You might be surprised at what you find there. I am attaching a stock photo of mine for your pleasure.
Have a blessed day! Tami
