Coffee Mug Inspiration

I've been dealing with my coffee cups being all over the place on my desk. I had piles of them in the corner and on cardboard shelves I had out of empty Ramen packages. I was looking for a mug tree as well, but didn't find any that I liked. While on this review page I joined I found these great little curtain hooks that resemble a C with a ball at the end on the bottom. I have cubby's on my desk and discovered that I can hang my mugs from the cubby's using these hooks. Granted I can only get 4 cups up at a time, but that's better than none at all. The rest of the cups will go downstairs in the cupboard.

They really are. Once I get my curtains cleaned up I plan to have wind chimes with them.

I'd save my favorites and get rid of the rest. How many do you need?

The problem is that most of them are from my nieces. They give me mugs for every holiday. It makes them happy to see me using them.

I have a shelf dedicated for mugs in my kitchen cupboard. Generally the shelf is full to overflowing. Then it is time to cull the. It's again. I'm sure they breed when I close the cupboard doors.

I have my percolator upstairs. I make my coffee upstairs because the flavoured stuff doesn't agree with my mum. I have a hand full of cups up here that my nieces gave to me. Our downstairs shelf has a lot of cups on it as well, but my favourite ones are upstairs.

You've got lots of cups. I only have one mug (favorite) for my coffee.

It's much easier to work with than having piles of mugs in the corner. lol
