Since we all have favorite mugs we don't want broken or carried off someplace I'll share some of my uses. I have one on my computer desk which has pens, small scissors, pinking shears and 2 regular pairs of scissors, one of which has the teflon blades which will cut double face tape with no stickiness. The large wooden thingy, which I believe is for removing boiled eggs from a pan, I use to turn my pillows inside out before stuffing. I saw this on a Christopher Lowell show. I have several mugs on my kitchen counter for small kitchen implements.
We have too many mugs! So, I use some of them on tops of bookcases, file cabinets, dressers, etc. to store small items. One contains a pair of scissors, buttons, and single earrings for sewing and crafts. Another contains pens, pencils, paper clips, small erasers, and tiny office supplies.

i pick up coffee mugs at the thrift store by the dozen. If you make a cake mix you can fill the cup 3/4 of the way and bake in oven. now frost it and put a candle on top. Take it to an elderly neighbor as a birthday cake, valentine cake, easter cake etc. you get the idea!!Also is great for smaller children. They think they have their own cake. This only takes like 15 min. in oven. You will love their expression when they get to blow out the candle
I bought some small, short/squatty melmac coffee cups and they are just the greatest to serve my kids ice cream in. They hold just the right amount plus they have the handle to hold onto!
I know there are just posts about uses here and i was wondering if anyone knew how to get mugs donated.
My work is a non-profit organization providing services to the elderly and adults with disabilities.
We are trying to go green and we were wondering if anyone knew how we could get coffee mugs donated to us, it doesnt matter if none of them match.
Put out the word to the churches and synagogues in your area. Ladies' groups love projects like that. As a former school districe employee I used to get lots of mugs .... Rather than a holiday gift exchange it was more like a mug exchange. And the children's parents always throw in some mugs with small items or candy inside.
