You can measure 2/3 cup by figuring out how many ounces, pints, or tablespoons it is equal to (10 plus 2 teaspoons). If you don’t have any measuring tools, your fist is about the size of one cup. Cut that amount into thirds and throw away one third.
Consider equivalent measurements
5 1/3 fluid ounces, 1/3 pint, 10 tablespoons plus 2 teaspoons, and 2/3 cup are all the same as 2/3 cup. When you know these equivalent measurements, you can use other measuring tools, like a liquid measuring cup or measuring spoons, to get the right amount.
Use known sizes to make a guess.
One cup is about the size of your fist or a baseball. Based on that size, you can guess a measurement, cut it into thirds, and throw away one third.
Look for package markings
Ingredients like butter and cream cheese often come in packages with measurements on them. Just cut the product along the lines to get the right size.
