It’s Thursday and time for the Dollar Store Item of the Week!
We all need to be frugal but there is just something about a travel mug of good java or tea! Rather than getting those at an expensive coffee shop, try your neighborhood Dollar Tree! Of course, every store is a bit different and you never know what’s going to be there, but if you see these, you might want to stock up!
They come in lots of fun colors! Like crayon colors, they look good all the time. They also have a grip area that is ridged and a rubbery material, to make sure your coffee doesn’t end up on the ground. (Misery!) This grip area is not super thin either, like you might expect from a dollar item. It should last a long time with proper care.
One of the coolest things about these mugs, unlike a lot of more expensive ones, is that the lid screws on. It doesn’t need pushed and pressed, hoping it will pop into place. This might not be something you think of when shopping for a good travel mug, but there is nothing more annoying than a lid that won’t go on!!
It has a sip area that is typical of to-go cups and a tiny, tiny hole in the center of the lid to allow for free-flowing liquids.
So far, they don’t seem to stain either! Even with espresso :D
These would make a fun gift, too. Who doesn’t need travel mugs?? At only a dollar, they would make great stocking stuffers, cheer-up-your-day gifts or an affordable way to supply your arsenal of travel mugs!
