Have you ever noticed how many glasses and mugs your family uses on a regular basis? Using a clean cup, or mug each time you have a beverage can really fill-up your sink or dishwasher quickly.

To reduce dishes, assign one mug or cup to each family member every morning for the day.  This simple rule will help reduce the number of dishes you need to do at the end of the day.

To make this rule effective, the one-cup rule demands commitment from everyone! The key is to have a distinctive mug or cup for each member of the family. This will make it easier for everyone to identify their drinking vessel.
