Does your kitchen counter, sink or dishwasher regularly fill up with mugs, glasses, cups and water bottles used by the family throughout the day? Does it seem like everyone in the house just grabs a new cup, glass or mug every time someone wants a drink?

I have always been amazed by the amount of dishes we use throughout the day, and there’s only three of us! I can’t imagine what larger families have to deal with. I get the problem: you reach for a glass, drink some water and set it on the counter. The next time you come back for a drink you’re not sure which glass was yours, so you grab a new one from the cupboard. At the end of the day there’s a sink full of dishes that have barely been used.

Sound familiar? Well, there’s a simple solution to this problem that will keep your kitchen counter more organized and less cluttered. And at the end of the day, you’ll definitely have less cleanup to do!

Introducing: Designated Name Coasters

Earlier this year we introduced our custom name mugs, which became an instant hit. The mugs have a simple and modern, yet colorful design that allows you to add any two lines to text to include a first name, title or a last name.

We quickly realized just how handy these mugs are for big families, so we introduced our custom designated name coasters. Available in a variety of bright colors, our name coasters can be personalized with either one or two lines of text.

Simply customize one coaster for every member of the family, place them in a row on your kitchen counter and instruct the family to put their cups only on their designated coasters.

It might take a few days for everyone in the house to get into the habit of reusing their cups and glasses and setting them down in a designated spot in the kitchen, but once they do you’ll quickly notice what a fun and simple kitchen hack this was to implement.
