Hey friends! Welcome to a little thing I’m calling Must-Have Monthly, a monthly post dedicated to one item that I can’t live without – ok fine, one thing I just don’t WANT to live without.
Looking for a tried and true product, service or thingamajob that makes your life better, simpler and just that much more fantastic?! I’ve got a few of those in my life and who would I be if I didn’t share their awesomeness with you.

Up this month, the companion to my coffee. The stain-saver, dribble-stopper, hot-keeper love of my life. The one and only Contigo SnapSeal Byron Stainless Steel Travel Mug. This thing in THE BOMB!
Why is the Contigo SnapSeal Travel Mug a must-have?
There is no comparison. This thing is freaking AH-MAZ-ING. I can toss it in my purse , aka a big ‘ole canvas crossbody sack that my husband hates, without fear of leaking. It tosses and turns, flops and flips without a drip.
Just look at my well-loved 16 ouncer – she’s a beaut! A bit worn around the edges but works as good as new.
It keeps my liquid life-line hot for hours on end. Turn it upside-down, shake it all about. And nothing. Just a clean sealed travel mug. Yes please!
Do you need more details?
What else is there to say – you need one! These stainless steel mugs come in 16, 20 or 24 ounces and a variety of colors.
They fit in most car cup holders. If you happen to have one of the few cars where they don’t, rolling around on the seat next to you won’t matter. Did I mention that these suckers DON’T LEAK!
Drinks stay hot for up to 7 hours with the trademarked THERMALOCK vacuum insulation.
Leak-proof with the SnapSeal lid.
Oh look, there’s me on a Sunday morning, looking fresh as can be, ha! – thank you selfie filters.
Are there any downsides?
If I had to knock it down at all, I really don’t think it lives up to the claim of easy one-handed operation.
The AutoSeal lid is better for that, but it comes as a cost. I learned the hard way. I tossed an AutoSeal in my big ‘ole purse and ended up with a soaking, coffee-stained mess. See, the AutoSeal button and lock switch is more sensitive than the strong SnapSeal.
As I moved about, something else in my purse pressed up against the button and allowed my precious coffee to leak. Boo. So if you’re like me and need a cup that can take a beating and still remained sealed, stick with the SnapSeal.
So, that’s not actually a downside if what you need is a toss it any-which-way mug is what your looking for.
Where do I get this must-have mug for myself!?
You can buy just about anywhere. Target, Amazon, Contigo.com, Walmart…you get the idea. Of course I’ve got some links, if you’d be ever so kind to click though – you can buy one here. But…I’d probably recommend you get two right off the bat, then you don’t have to share.
Do you own this must-have item yet? What do you think of it?
I’m a little bit crafty, a diy-er, a thrifter, a lover of craft IPAs and probably swear a tad too much. I’ve been living with anxiety since high school and learned a lot along the way. Just trying to live my life simple. And sane. Welcome to my corner of the web!
