I have two suggestions that will speak to the klutz in all of us. When measuring rice to cook, I set my measuring cup in the saucepan I will be using. When I pour the rice in, I place one hand as a guard to keep the rice from spilling onto the counter. I then empty the cup into the pan, add the right amount of water and cook.
The next one is to set my coffee canister in the sink when I fill it. Any spillage can be taken care of by turning on the faucet. As a person who spills and slops a lot this has been helpful to me. I certainly hope I'm not the only one who needs it.

Good tip - i always thought i was the only klutz who spilled things when measuring. i measure everything in my sink! i even bread my chicken cutlets in the sink - one bowl for the eggs and one bowl for the breadcrumbs.
Now I wish someone could tell me how to quite knocking over cups of coffee, glasses of water. I'm so clumsy that quite often I knock over my coffee cup as I'm taking it out of the microwave after I reheated it. Yesterday, I knocked it over on the newspaper I was reading. I like to keep a glass of water on my nightstand as I wake up sometimes with a dry mouth. I had to quit that because I knocked the glass over and got my cell phone wet.
Marty D, A kindred spirit here in Australia, I have been doing those things for years! You make me feel better, my kind friends say when we go out and I drop something, spill or trip over something 'now you know why we don't take her out much!' but they say it with love, and they still take me out!
