Unwanted Coffee Mug Ideas
Every year we fall victim to the gift of one or on some occasions, several unwanted coffee mugs. Whether it's a Christmas, birthday or housewarming gift, it adds to the problem of where to put them and how to put them to good use. You can use a rotation system in order to use them all equally for your hot beverages, however I personally tend to use my favourite one all the time.
You could always try to sell them on Ebay or on other websites but it's a lot easier to find clever uses for them around the house. Below we have a look at some ideas which put these unwanted coffee mugs to good use.

You can use your unused mug as a place to keep your loose change. If you're always looking for change and struggle to find some, by keeping your coins in a designated mug, you will always know where to look.
