I like to make lists, whether they’re grocery lists, lists of recipes that I want to work on or lists of friends I haven’t delivered baked goods to in a while. It is always over the first cup of coffee in the morning that things start to come into focus and I tend to write on what’s available at the moment; just like remembering a dream, if you don’t write it down when you first think of it, you’ll probably forget completely.
Writing on post-its, pieces of newspaper and the backs of envelopes isn’t such a bad strategy for grocery lists, but it’s not great for anything else because it is just too easy to loose that little paper before I get around to checking things off. This is precisely why this Write-On Mug caught my eye. The mug is designed so that you can write right on the surface with a pencil (with eraser, included). It couldn’t be more perfect for making lists over that first cup of coffee – and if you’re anything like me, you know that it’s a lot easier to misplace a piece of paper than it is to loose track of a mug of freshly brewed coffee. Pencil is the perfect medium for this mug because it comes off easily and you can write on the mug while it is upright and filled up. You can reuse it again and again, too. The Glassware comes in two options – a mug and a tumbler – so you can pick the style that suits your drinking habits and get the tumbler if you prefer to start your day with juice instead of coffee.
