Hello, my name is Polly and I'm a Mugaholic.
I finally admitted this to my friend Marc earlier this year, and if you're going to be addicted to something, mugs aren't such a bad way to go. They are useful in so many different ways - in addition to using them for beverages, both hot *and* cold, you can also use them for:
- small items such as paper clips, safety pins, rubber bands
- housing a small plant
- throwing change into (for eventually treats or for laundry)
- cleaning scrubs and/or brushes
- pens, pencils, markers
And much, much more!
Up until last week I had most of my mugs on a two-tier lazy susan on the kitchen counter, but I now own quite a few more so I went back to Kitchen Stuff Plus and bought two "non-skid cabinet organizers" and have 3 levels of mugs on the other side of the counter now. It looks neat having a wall of mugs but it will force us to do the dishes right away due to the lack of space in front now. That shouldn't be such a bad thing, but sometimes you just like to plonk them down and walk away for a day. Or two.
I hope Chris brings back a mug for me on his trip. I have room for at least 3 more mugs and then it's full. Again. :P
Now I just have to tidy up the microwave stand.
