The top contender in many kitchens for a larger collection than can koozies (you can argue to spell this cozie) is… Yup – coffee mugs!
We are given them as gifts (okay, some are really wonderful, especially the ones kids or grandkids made), we get them as prizes, and we get them as practical jokes.
We dutifully rearrange the cupboard or drawers to accommodate all of them. Why? You tell me, but usually it is habit or even guilt.
Let’s be honest, how many are you using at one time? Depending on the number of coffee, tea, cocoa drinkers, or visitors, I’m betting six, maybe eight tops.
Here is an easy solution. Gather all of them out of the cupboard, or from around the house, and put them on the counter. You might be surprised at how many you really have. Seeing all of them should help you to quickly pick out the one or two you always grab first. Then pick a few more and donate the rest. You’ll love the space you created and you will also be more mindful when another comes into your home. Don’t be afraid to keep a new favorite, but consider letting one go.
