We have six kids.  If each child got a drink at each meal and a drink mid morning and mid afternoon that would be a minimum of 6 x 5 = 30 cups per day to wash.  That just doesn't work for me so. . . 

 We have assigned cup colors so that we never fight over colors :)   After meals the kids put their cup in "cup-land" next to the fridge.  If they have milk with a meal we rinse it out before they put it back.  After dinner they put their cups in the dishwasher.  It is a simple thing, but it makes our lives a little bit easier!

This system is now working swimmingly in our home. Thanks for the idea. I will especially notice the benefits of this in the summer when my kids are home all day and a lot thirstier. We found our cups for 75 cents a piece at Wal-Mart. They are 12 oz cups and work perfectly.

Thanks again!

I like the idea of the cups next to the fridge.
