Old Mother Hubbard

Went to the cupboard
to fetch a glass for a drink
but when she got there,
the cupboard was almost bare
she did not know what to think...

In a matter of 8 weeks, 9 glasses broke or went missing.

In comparison to our average of a glass a year broken, we were quickly headed to a bare glass cupboard.

The solution? Someone had commented months ago about issuing Dixie cups and paper plates. I took their advice on the cups.

I boxed up the remaining glasses and . . . .

We will take turns on purchasing!

Update: Clothes Detergent

The answer to the empty detergent container what was being used?

Spray 'n Wash

BUT. While we were at the beach, they made a purchase of detergent.

I am continuing with the purex sheets for the rest of us - that leaves that purchase for themselves. It seems they are better stewards of the detergent they paid for.

9 glasses? Yipes. Good call on switching to Dixie cups for a while, and on taking turns on purchasing them!

I'm so glad you posted an update on the clothes detergent mystery! Good for you for not giving in and buying it!
