We usually go out to dinner once a week in our family. There is also the occasional lunch out with the girlfriend and her kids. (This usually involves nuggets and a indoor playground somewhere but at least I get to talk to another mama!)
Along with the good conversation comes germy tables. I am not germ crazy but I don't want to lay their food down on a table.... well lets just say I don't know where that table has been! I have spent a fortune on those disposable table mats. (You know the kind with the sticky tabs in the back) They are very nice and very convenient but I feel like I am throwing money in the trash.
So I rejoiced when I found this in the dollar bins at Target....
Its a place mat that can be thrown in the dishwasher and then folded up again and taken with you. I have used it several times now and its awesome! My son calls it his "map". I know where its been and I save a TON of money!!
