You don’t know this (because I can’t tell you everything) but I’ve been on a search for some new drinking cups for quite sometime. I’m pretty sure that these ones came over on the ark and they were starting to show their age. Not to mention they were made WAY before the concern about BPA contamination and I’m sure they’ve taken at least a whole week off my life because of it. *wink*
This is just a few of the many that I had. I liked the fact that there were like 8 different colors as I could assign a color to each person. But they are now in the recycle bin. Let’s just say they had run their race and should have retired years ago.
Now the new cups had to meet a certain criteria. They had to still be plastic (because I have children), they had to be BPA free (because that stuff is bad for ya) they had to be a decent size but not to big (because who wants to carry around a HUGE glass just for a cup of water).
Believe it or not it’s been a tough thing to find and I almost settled for some mammoth 24oz tumblers from Sam’s for $20.00 for 8. That is until I walked past their restaurant section. There I found these.
I know that I’ve probably crossed the line to tacky but these actually have a lot of things going for them. #1- They were only $17.00 for 24 cups. #2-They are BPA free and stain and odor resistant. #3- They are red and match my kitchen which already has a retro type feel so they should be great. Right? Right?
The only downfall is that they are ALL red. I’m going to have to come up with some way to identify each glass for my family. Got any ideas? So you want to come to Kim’s cafe and have an iced tea or lemonade? Do you think I’m completely off my rocker?
HAVE A LOVELY DAY!
