My Kind Of Hip

A few months ago I purchased this:


A Kleen Kanteen. Now I didn’t purchase it (gasp!) new. I purchased it from a lady who paid ( double gasp!) full price, received it in the mail, and promptly, without even using it, decided that it simply wasn’t hip enough.

I don’t know about you, but if the price is right, I’ll happily ditch hip for a lesser rung on the kewlness ladder.

And the price on this baby was more than right. Which, next to free, is my price of choice these days.

Reusable anything is hip in a green kind of way these days. And I happen to know that Arianne over at 5 Minutes For Going Green would approve too.

Well, you know…..if she actually had a clue that I was even using one of these.

I love being able to fill my KK up with ice and water and take it along during my day.

If I really want to get exotic I add in some Crystal Light and pretend that I’m on vacation in some exotic local where medical bills are something nobody ever receives.

I may not be the hippest Mama of them all, but I can certainly pretend with the best of them.

  1. Tammy, I love you, you are so funny! I think it is great that you found that for a good price!!! I would have done the same thing!! You have the best outlook of any one I know!! Thank you for just being YOU!!!


  2. What a great deal you got on that! Seriously, we have like three of these and love them! Our son even uses his every day. I love how they are dishwasher safe. I paid more for a different cap for mine, and broke it the second day I had it, so I’m still bummed about that. I can’t bring my self to pay another $5 for a new cap ;) So I’m using the broken one, with sharp edges and all.

    It sure does get VERY cold w/ ice in it. I bought this bottle insulated sleeve for mine and that makes it not so freezing on my hands ;).

    How silly of that woman! But awesome for you!

  4. You know, where I am from (hippy land on the North Coast of Cali) KK are ALL THE RAGE! You are super hip to me! ;-)

  5. Girl, I think they are very hip. We have a few, here, and I’m so glad you got your hands on one as well! I carry mine everywhere. :)
