Geek Etiquette: Protect Your Table

The Geeky Hostess is gonna help you get your manners on! Have an etiquette question or topic suggestion? Email!

Coasters are great for soaking up condensation, preventing rings from forming on your tables, and keeping the surface clean, but how often do you use them? How about placemats?

I encourage you to try using some table protectors this week. It may feel like a hassle at first, but the cleanliness of your table (and how fancy you feel while eating) may make you a convert.

Get the right coasters and placemats, and you’ll be keeping your place clean and decorated at the same time! Check out these ones from

Map Pin Coasters, $10.50 for 4

Chat Coasters, $10.50 for 4

Cinema Placemat, $7 for 2

Folder placemat, $7 for 2

What are your coasters/placemats of choice? And will you be partaking in the “protect your table” challenge this week?


  1. Hey Tara!
    I was just wondering whether you had any tips for a Geek on a budget?
    I’m not exactly earning enough money to buy all the cool things that you talk about.
    Thanks : ) x

  2. Sure! Be on the lookout for some “budget-friendly” posts in the future!
