I got new coffee cups from Jason and Nikki for Christmas and I was just shocked I tell you. I didn’t expect them in a million years. They are the only kind I like and I really couldn’t tell you why. My old ones are the two on the left. They are so old. I think I got them in 1996 at a Home Interior party. My new ones are on the right. Aren’t they nice and shiny and new? (Click on the picture and look how the lights shine through new ones versus the old ones.) I’m telling you, these old guys have been through a lot with me. I’ve even taken them with me on some of my travels as I LOVE my coffee in them.
Now my question is, what to do with the old ones and should I use the new ones or save them? For those of you who know me really well, you know I like to have things on hand “just in case” I were to break some or couldn’t find them anywhere and then what would I do? But in all these years I’ve never broken one. I still have all four of them which really says a lot but they are superly scratched up and the new ones are so shiny that I can imagine my hot drinks tasting even better and I can imagine holding one in between my hands to feel very nice and smooth.
I’m going to put the old ones away and use the new. There’s only 4 of them so it’s not like it’s going to take up any room. I washed them today but I really wanted to know what you guys do when you get new things like this? Do you donate the old ones or put them away (to be thrown away at another time) or do you save the new ones and keep using the old?
