Save the large cups you get from fast food places, together with their to-go plastic cover and straw. You can wash them out and use them quite a few times more with your own drinks. (And you might want to take a few extra to-go tops with you, they don't last as long as the cups.)
I also use these cups for holding leftover water from the kitchen so that i can water plants with it.
I bring a plastic cup with my bag lunch where ever I go. I save money this way. I don't buy soda and just use water.
I have a 3 year old granddaughter and we use the cups to capture crickts that find their way into the house and release them outside. They are also great for watering flowers, and hold plenty of water to make "mud soup" outside.
