Holder for straws
I find myself in need of drinking straws a lot, because Mini Me has a hard time drinking out of to-go cups or restaurant glasses with a regular straw. She has to hold the cup in her lap and then stretch her little neck up just to get her mouth on top of the tall straw. A friend of ours recently saw this in action while we were in Sanibel and came to my rescue with a purse full of bendy straws. I had never thought to carry them with me before, but I vowed to pick some up the next time I went shopping.
Once I grabbed a bag of straws at the store, I couldn’t decide how I should carry them around in my purse so that they didn’t get all gross. A little bit of walking up and down the aisles led me to the perfect solution… a toothbrush holder! The bendy straws fit so perfectly into the toothbrush holder that you’d think it was made for them. I tossed one in my purse, one in my car, and one in McGeeky’s car. Now we won’t have any more spilled cups from giant straws!
