Tuesday's Tip: Drink indentification

:Are you ready to slap your forehead in response to today's tip?  Here goes...

Does this happen to anyone else?  You have a crowd of people over, and they're all thirsty, so you give 'em all something to drink.  But before they actually finish whatever it is that's in their cup, they're off doing something else, abandoning their drinks, and you're left with seemingly millions of identical-looking cups strewn about the kitchen and dining area.  No one can remember which was theirs, so when they return, looking for another drink, the old cups get dumped out, and everyone gets a new cup.  Not only is this wasteful, it's a lot of work washing all those cups.

The other day the Camp Scarlet kids were thirsty.  I just knew they would drink half of whatever I gave them and then run off, and no one would remember which cup was theirs when they returned.  What to do, what to do?

Then I remembered the hair binders I had gotten for free a few weeks ago.  What if I put a different color binder on each cup?  Well, that's what I did.
And it worked!  Like a charm.  Car had the blue cup, Pal's was red, and Bubby's was yellow.  If you happen to have more cups than you have colors of binders, you could put two or more on some cups, as long as each combination is unique.
