Three jars.

Three spaces.

Coffee on the left.

Sugar on the right.

Tea snuggly warm in the middle.

Or is there a comestible fairy that visits in the night and play three card monte with them? And people daren't play fast and loose with guessing which is which what's the fecking worst that cam happen?

Eradication Of Worded Vessels.

Can you help with the placrads?

TSC in this house and i one of my pet hate when DH moves them around

No Chaos! Coffee on the left, sugar in the middle and tea on the right. DH had to be severely repremanded today for switching the sugar and tea vessel round. <twitch>. In the event of my vessel's not having CTS on the front the outcome could have been catostrophic!!!

Also, when making a hot beverage my cup must be on the right (because I'm always right) and DH's on the left.

CSTS in this house.... brown sugar for coffee, white sugar for tea grin

Actually you should have 4, arranged in a sort of pyramid with a coffee jar in between the back 2

So it's fruit tea (jar of coffee)brown sugar (L to R at the back) &
Tea, white sugar (L to R at the front)

No labels

TSC here - coffee is merely tolerated. Tea is essential and thus must be first in line.

OddBoots Sun 10-Jul-11 22:15:01

Our coffee lives in the freezer so we have stuck a label over the coffee one for 'decaf tea'. ~awaits the horror~

whysolate Sun 10-Jul-11 22:15:15

.....and you must never, not ever, drink the last inch of tea in your cup.

Bad things will happen.

So we can judge.


WhereTheWildThingsWere Sun 10-Jul-11 22:21:18

Mine is sugar, tea and then coffee nestled in front to form a triange.

No labels needed all are completely different jars/pots.


AuntiePickleBottom Sun 10-Jul-11 22:23:46

i got offical TSC, they have the words on the mother bought them for me, best present ever

Tee2072 Sun 10-Jul-11 22:24:35

Nope. CF. Coffee flour.

I rarely use sugar, only drink coffee, cook with flour constantly. And DH uses sweeteners.

Tee2072 Sun 10-Jul-11 22:26:01

Oh and there are no labels. Clear jars and if you can't tell coffee from flour you should probably see a doctor!

ChaosTrulyReigns Sun 10-Jul-11 22:30:27

<<worries about Tee's flour needs>>






Mandy2003 Sun 10-Jul-11 22:37:54

T and S but no C. I only know one person who drinks C so it is better kept in its own screw topped jar until needed.

Tee2072 Sun 10-Jul-11 22:44:08

I have 3 (non worded) canisters, they all have tea in smile

Coffee is relegated to the cupboard in its jar of purchase, sugar also lives in the cupboard but resides in a 50's diner style sugar dispenser.

Flour is only occasionally allowed out.

ChunkyPickle Sun 10-Jul-11 22:50:53

I HATE multi-use things with labelling.. those horrid plates with "PASTA", mugs with "TEA", planks with "PIZZA" etc...

However I can just about cope with labelled CTS (or TCS - but S is definitely on the right).. if only because I know that DH will pick the wrong one without fail each time otherwise.

I suppose glass is an option.

<tries to fashion placrads>


BelleDameSansMerci Sun 10-Jul-11 23:14:15

whysolate is right. The last inch of tea is forbidden...

One of my friends asked my then DP (hah!) if there was something wrong with how she makes tea as I never drink it all. He had to report it was the same whoever made the tea grin

I think this comes from tea made with tealeaves (not bags) and finding all sorts at the bottom of cup. <shudders>

coffee in the freezer, tea on the worktop (big box of PG tips), sugar in the cupboard (in a glass jar). No need for labels.
