    Love the idea – so clever!! Reckon one could also use a stainless steel tea ball for the same purpose?

    coffee singlets how ingenious! i bet this could be used for loose tea as well.

    WOW! AWESOME idea! I am having a camp-style wedding late this summer and This would be perfect for the guests who camp over night! Thank you so much!!

    WOW what a fantastic idea!!

    Brilliant! I commented over on the other blog, but wanted to mention here, too – a few of these tucked into a travel mug would be a most excellent gift, I’m thinkin’! Thanks for the great idea!

  7. This is great. We have some beans left over from before “the switch”.

    will these work in the single serve coffee makers?

    I also use coffee filters as a particle strainer; placed inside a mesh strainer, to drain the crunchy bits out of my taco frying oil, which once strained, I save in the refrigerator for next time.

    Thanks so much for the link to the site. I will bry this.

    This is such a wonderful idea! Starbucks sells those VIA instant coffee packets for over $1 each. This seems like a much more cost effective way of getting a cup of joe on the road. Thank you so much for sharing, Cathe!

    Very smart idea my dear. Years ago we even had an immersion heater for boiling water in a cup for tea and such. It saved us a ton of money when we were young and staying in motels on vacations. This is super economical.

    Hi Cathe –

    As a coffee drinker, your blog title really caught my eye today. Heading over to SC Johnson to see how you make them.

    Clever! I’m not a coffee drinker, but hubby is. Often when we travel he is disappointed in the coffee choices in hotels. Great idea!

    Great idea! One of those ‘now how come I didn’t think of that’ things. I’ve always hassled with trying to fit the filter over the edge of my mug, leaving a little well for the coffee, then pouring hot water over it, but it takes too long and I always manage to let the filter slip from my hand around the mug and in go the grounds. Ugh! This is soooo much better!!! And…I’m so going to make a bunch of these when camping season starts! They’ll be perfect to take along!

    I love this!

    Love this idea! Coffee is expensive and so are those little pods! Going to make some of these myself! Thanks!

    I wanted to congratulate Dawn, Sissi and Cheryl on being lucky enough to win the swag bags. A very merry un-birthday to you three! I’m jealous, but I’m sure you all deserve it. Enjoy!

    We used to buy Folger’s Singles for the camper, a mix of instant&brewed. It tastes *bad*. This is a great idea since we can use the grind we’re used to.

    Your magazine is one of the most important tools I have in my craft room. Thanks so much for offering this great reference guide to all the (not-as-creative-as -you-are) people like me.

  22. #22 - Laura Bray says:

    What a brilliant idea! So smart-as always!

  23. #23 - Heather Ozee says:

    This is a great tip, I would have never thought of doing it like that. thanks 🙂

  24. Great Idea…I am the only coffee drinker in the family! Can use this one! Happy April Fool’s Day – for a fun prank….check out my blog!

    Really enjoyed all the original crafty ideas. I’ll be trying some of them. In particular, the individual coffee bags appealsed to me. I am a caffeine addict so this is a great idea. Thanks

    Actually a loose tea ball was a terrible idea for me. Unless you don’t mind a fair amount of grounds in your coffee.

    Very smart. I love the Starbucks Vanilla but I can’t afford a Keurig or $16.00 for the K Cups. But I can buy the bag for $7.00. Merry Christmas to me!!
