Now that the kids are home all day, they’re eating and drinking often. Dirty dishes were piling up, and I was getting frustrated. While at Target the other day, I saw these cute lemon coasters in the Dollar Spot–on sale for 70% off. Yep, just .30. You could let the kids make their own coasters as a crafty project, but this is so much easier. I used a Sharpie to personalize each with an initial, and now we each have a place to leave our glass or cup FOR THE DAY. It only took one weekend to train the kids (and hubby) to use them. Now, there’s only five cups to wash at the end of the day–that works for me!
