I (don’t really) need a cup holder extender!

Car Cup Holder

It’s what you’ve been waiting for!

It’s the first of our new, irregular series of “concraptions” (things you don’t actually need, hadn’t even considered, but suddenly can’t live a full and happy life without now you know they exist).

I have a bit of a personal obsession with these sorts of products. The sane part of my brain knows that they are often over-solving a problem that barely existed in the first place, that they are a waste of the earth’s precious resources, that the majority of humans on this earth don’t even have access to clean running water, and that I don’t need any more “stuff” in my life.

But the emotional part of my brain says “screw you, sane brain! What do you know about anything, anyway? This product is clearly awesome”.

First up: The Trio Cup Holder

My car isn’t fancy enough to have even ONE cup holder, but if you’ve got one and feel like life could be improved if you had — say — three, the Trio from Sunshine Kids will make your dreams a reality.

Over on Amazon, “T” wasn’t so impressed:

I was super excited when this came out and I had it on back order. I patiently waited. Very disappointed… it just pops into an existing cup holder. Not a happy camper…

But “Portland Mummy of Twins” who finds the lack of space in her Chevy Trailblazer “a real bummer”, uses hers to carry her “phone, DVD player remote, cups etc” and now has four cup spaces instead of the paltry two she was just barely surviving with before.

Just think! You’ll never be limited to buying just ONE drink for yourself again!
