Happy Thanksgiving To My Canadian Readers

It might be Columbus day here in the USA but in Canada it is Thanksgiving.

Since I was born and raised on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada  I figured that taking today off from posting sounded like a pretty good idea.

I think later in the week I might even drop in at one of the new Tim Horton’s locations in Fort Wayne, Indiana and and celebrate late with a taste of Canada.

Canadian readers enjoy your time with your family and friends today!

An Insulated Mug That Is Easy To Clean, Fits Everywhere, And Can Take A Beating

Share

(post contains affiliate links: see disclosure)

My favorite insulated mug (or tumbler, or water bottle or whatever word you prefer) spends more time with me than my hubby, my children and my best friend do. It is pretty much always by my side. It keeps my hot drinks hot and my cold drinks cold. I can fill it up with ice and water before I go to bed at night and there will still be ice in it when I get up the next morning.

This insulated mug fits anywhere, is super easy to clean and very durable. This insulated tumbler can be used for both hot and cold drinks--making it a great water bottle.

It never tastes like tin nor plastic, and when the contents switch from coffee to water your tastes buds would never know it. There isn’t a spot I can’t reach with a dishcloth so keeping it sparkling clean is a breeze.

I love the fact that if I were to somehow misplace the lid I could easily order a new one without having to get a new tumbler.

I have had it for well over a year and yet the only sign of wear is a bit of missing paint near the bottom where the water cage on my bike rubs it–and I am not gentle with it at all.  My pink beauty has been dropped more times than I can count and yet she is dent free and still in one piece.

An Insulated Mug That Is Easy To Clean, Fits Everywhere, And Can Take A Beating

When I say it goes everywhere with me I am totally not kidding. These photos of it below are just a few I found when I scanned through all my pictures from the last year or so that I have owned it.

Here it is waiting patiently for me in my pool lounger. Snug in the cup holder with a cool refreshing drink of True Raspberry Lemonade (only 10 calories and sweetened with stevia) .

Another day it was busy hanging out in my thirty-one bag while I gathered my stuff together for a road trip. Snug and safe for transport.

And here she is snuggled beside her brother (owned by my hubby) waiting for the adventures of date day.

My insulated tumbler also fits great in the cup holder of my sit upon kayak. She and I have paddled many a mile together.

We have also spent many days biking together, although for some reason I never got a photo of her and I doing that together (I must correct that soon).

A picture of my insulated tumbler when it was brand spanking new. I loved it so much at first sight I needed a picture to remember our first moments together.

Klean Kanteen 16-Ounce Wide Insulated Stainless Steel Bottle

Now, the initial cost of my favorite insulated mug was much more than I have ever paid for an insulated tumbler, mug, water bottler or insulated anything before.

It cost me even more to get the oh so convenient sippy lid. However, I am so glad I convinced my thrifty self that that my 16 0z  Kleen Kanteen wide mouth tumbler was worth the cost–because it so is (However, I do find that the sippy lid does leak a bit so if I want it to transport my bottle with no fear of leaks I use the lid it came with).

Since I bought it I rarely experience symptoms of dehydration. I finally drink all that water that the doctors say is so good for me and I don’t find it a chore to do either. After all, my insulated water bottle fits in almost any cup holder I have come across.

Psst…I bought mine from Amazon using gift cards I earned through Swagbucks and InstaGC! (psst…another great place earn Amazon gift card codes is Prize Rebel)
