Quick and Easy Mug Organization Using Command Hooks
Between others buying drinkware for us, my mug-making, and the mugs we got from our wedding registry, our apartment is swimming in mugs. Anyone else in the same predicament? It seems to be pretty common that many households have more mugs (or drinkware) than they know what to do with. Here’s an easy solution for your mug overflow: use Command Hooks to make a space-saving mug organizer.
This is what our cupboard looked like before I organized the mugs on hooks….
As you can see, we have plenty of mugs for two people. Considering my track record with dropping things (I am quite the klutz), stacking those mugs was just asking for trouble. Here’s the before of the space above the sink….

How to Make a Mug Organizer with Command Hooks
Making your mug organizer is a relatively simple process.
First, put a piece of painter’s tape on the wall the same length across that you want your line of mugs to occupy.
Take the tape off and measure it. Use the number of mugs you have and subtract one, then divide your total measurement by the number of mugs minus one. This will be how long your segments will be. Working with the end of the tape as your starting point, put tick marks on your tape according to your segment length.
Tape your masking tape to the wall. Align the bottom edge of your tape where you would like your hooks to start.
Follow the instructions on the Command Hooks box to prepare the hooks.
Stick the hooks on the wall underneath your tick marks on the tape.
Remove the tape and hang your mugs.
Enjoy your new amount of cabinet space!
