I never really thought that this was something brilliant.
Until on two separate occasions I was telling someone on twitter that I kept a small, first generation Keurig in my bathroom and people were saying ‘This is an awesome idea!’.
See, they really did use the word ‘brilliant’. And if I remembered who that other person I was telling months ago my secret- she called me brilliant too. You’ll just have to take my word for it. Frankly I am flattered because no one ever says that about my ideas.
So- this is my one claim to fame.
About four Christmases ago my husband bought me a Keurig. We already had a coffee maker in the kitchen- but it was pretty clear that I was only making one cup a day- so this was a perfect solution. Also they were new at the time and people thought that they were really cool and we really had to have one.
Well shoot. Now I can’t remember if it was his idea- or my idea to put it in the bathroom. Anyhow- it’s there, and it’s been there forever and I love it. In fact- while I was on bed rest with the twins I started keeping bottled water up in my room because I was basically downing two gallons a day. I eventually got the bright idea to keep my half and half upstairs to boot.
After going that far- I decided that I might as well keep my sugar in the bathroom because it’s not like we were going to get ants in the bathroom, right? Even if we did I would be able to wash them down the sink. In essence- I never have to leave my room.
So this has been my set up now for the past few years. I would be lying if I told you that I wasn’t really, really stressing over what my Netherlands bathroom configuration is going to be like. I doubt I’ll have a counter quite this long with this much room. It’s on my husband’s end by his sink. Obviously.
And even if I did- will I need an adapter for the plug? You know- those weird European things? Or is Keurig international?
Yes, these are the thoughts that keep me up at night.
Have you ever done something pretty simple that makes life easier? Share!!!
