Pringles lid caps an IKEA cup -- making it practically spill-proof

Amazon: Pringles Potato Crisps Super Stack, OriginalAmy sends this tip from Italy, but IKEA and Pringles seem pretty universal worldwide.

It's a bit embarrassing to reveal this, but it's too good not to share.

Ikea sells a set of plastic cups that 90% of my friends with kids use (the KALAS tumbler). The other day my 3-year-old figured out that the lid from a Pringles can fits perfectly! The fit is so flawless it's basically spill-proof.

Once you pop, it makes a top! Good lidded cups are hard to find, and, with this hack, the price is definitely right.

Also: the best hacks are slightly embarrassing.

I don't have Ikea stuff...and we don't really eat Pringles often...But the Tupperware brand does usually have a few types of cups with plain lids (no spout/sippee)...To store liquids.
