I just emptied the cabinet to begin with and wiped it all out. After sorting through the mugs and choosing my husband's favorite ones, this is the group I had left to discard. Is it any wonder there wasn't room for anything? Who needs this many mugs for morning coffee?
When I was decluttering, I had to rescue this mug. It's one that a favorite student gave me many, many years ago. I kept this mug at school for years and had coffee in it every day. There are too many happy memories to let this one go.
Here's an item that is long overdue to be discarded. I haven't had a coffee maker that uses this basket type of filters in many months. These are being moved to the craft supplies.
After the purging and decluttering I found that I had an entire empty shelf, so I moved the to-go coffee cups from another cabinet over to this one. Now that makes sense, I think. I also added some small baskets to keep similar items together.
One basket is for coffee filters.
Another basket is for teas.
Hot chocolate mixes fill a third basket.
All those extra mugs can be donated and there are still plenty left.
The extra coffee is in the cabinet, but I filled one of my Fiestaware canisters with coffee and set it beside the coffee maker for everyday use.
I'm very happy with my coffee cabinet reorganization. It's so nice not to have everything crowded and stacked here, I just need to apply this to the rest of the kitchen.
