What To Do When Wine Charms Won’t Fit Your Glasses

. at . Leave a comment

Why is it that the number of dirty cups in the sink far outweighs the number of occupants in the home? Marking your glasses for home or company use is a sure way to cut down on each person using more than one glass. There are many ways to do this.

  • Make a set of unique wine charms. Assign each person a different charm and hope they remember which is theirs.
  • Paint your glasses with blackboard paint and chalk on the names. Using a liquid chalk makes the writing easier.
  • Use a dry erase pen to write on the names of the cup’s temporary owner. This doesn’t work so well on dark mugs.

Here’s my newest way to keep one glass per person . . . Name Coasters!

Soooo easy too! 3 steps to this tutorial.

1. Grab a 4 pack of cork coasters and a marker from your local Dollar Store. If there are more than 4 people in your home get as many packs as needed.

2. Remove & throw away all the packaging.

3. Write one person’s name on each coaster.


My brother-in-law came up with this idea which we field tested on New Year’s Eve. It worked brilliantly. Every one was committed to either putting their glass back on their coaster or keeping their coaster with their glass. Kept the furniture safe from water rings too.

This is an idea that works for me because there are fewer glasses, no plastic throw-away cups, and the counter is once again filled with snacks rather than excess cups.
