Have I gone too far???

we have Breyer's yogurt here at the house...the kind with the foil lid. I was washing one out for recycling, and I noticed that it's a #5 plastic, and I can't recycle those. I was bummed out, because I didn't want to throw it away, but I couldn't really think of a use for it without a lid.

Then I remembered that the kids need some new drinking cups, and I thought it would make a perfect little cup for Tommy, who is four.

Have I officially lost it???

Not a problem at all! They would make great little cups (or even stacking cups for kids!) and if one gets broken or lost it's no big deal!!

Probably wouldn't serve drinks at a party with them, but around the house why not? lol

Lol, I've done it! I save the plastic cups they give you at the restaurant for kids too! They work well as sippy cups for a while

Re: Have I gone too far???

absolutely! I do this. Whether this makes me crazy or not I don't know. But my husband took mac and cheese to work today for lunch(fo rhte last week I've been making his lunch!!!!!!!!) in an old small butter container. And my daughter is taking her applesauce for snack in a yogurt cup. They are nice tupperware for the poor!
