Day 11- MUGS

excessive number of mugs

I love mugs!

This item was particularly hard for me to declutter. Of everything that I have gotten rid of in my home, this is actually one of the most recent. I put it off for so long. The reason is because I can remember where I got every single mug. Seeing some of them just makes me smile. However, I have never even had a sip of coffee out of some of them. They are of no use to me taking up room in my kitchen.

I got rid of everything except what I use on a regular basis, with one exception. The cute little penguin mug in the title image I could not part with. I use the penguin mug once or twice a year to sip hot cocoa out of while snow falls on a cold winter day. The feeling that I get curled up on the couch, even just once a year, is worth holding onto that one extra mug.

My point is, be critical and make some hard decisions, but if an item truely brings you joy, do not feel guilty holding onto it.
