The Cupboard: How are you using it?
I’m putting everything I’ve got, so I can see it and think “Oh, let’s drink that one up!” :-p
I can’t even figure out how the feature works yet. Too busy drinking tea and reading posts on Steepster when I should be working.
It’s pretty straight forward. When you view a tea and the tasting notes on the right it says “Add to cupboard” and the subtitle is “Own this tea?” If you own this tea (i.e if it’s in your real cupboard at home) click it and it logs that you own it.
AHA! I’m looking for an “Add to cupbard” button. I’ve been so mesmerized by the description and tasting notes of the teas that I forgot to look at what’s directly in front of my face. (Blush).
It’s ok. At first I was so mesmerized I forgot to actually drink tea! lol:)
Instead of puting this in the new features thread, I’m putting it here because it has to do w/ the cupboard. I’d like the ability to add tea books, tea wares, and tea food items to the cupboard. Also the ability to see the items in another person’s cupboard and shopping list. What about keeping an address on file so we can send items to each other either secretly (secret santa!) or revealing our identity.
You can already see items in someone else’s cupboard. Just go to that person’s profile and click the cupboard tab. (The same is true of their shopping list.) I’ve been shamelessly snooping through other people’s cupboards.
DUH! I feel stupid LOL:) Thanks Carolyn.
“I’ve been shamelessly snooping through other people’s cupboards.”
Interesting mental picture there, Carolyn.
I also use it as a log of what’s actually in my cupboard now. I hope to update it as I run out and restock. We’ll see how diligent I am.
Re tea books – quite a few of us are on LibraryThing, often with the same username; you can look at my tea books there – just search for the tag “TEA”
Hiya fellow LTer ! their “Tea!” group is how I found out about Steepster !
My cupboard is what I actually have on hand in my real tea drawer. I love this feature as well as the shopping list, now when I am at World Market shopping for tea, I will be a well informed shopper:)
Everything I have goes into the Cupboard, lest I forget those little odd bags lying around. It would be nice if we could simultaneously remove an item from the Cupboard and place the same tea on the Shopping List.
I LOVE that suggestion!
