5 Creative Uses for a Coffee Cup (Other than Drinking Coffee):

1. Organising! A tidy desk = tidy mind

Clutter on your work/study desk affects the overall productivity

Although, with a quirky little organisation.. you can make your desk much much neater!

Get a favourite coloured mug, put up all the extra stationary in it, place it in a corner and just get to work!

Say, you own a Hogwarts House Mug as a potterhead student who goes to a muggle world University! It would make more sense to use your favourite mug as a stationary organiser since you get to see it at all times now!

2. A cold/flu recovery kit

Winters are about to commence and there's nothing worse than falling prey to those common colds!

Store some cough syrup or menthol tablets, a nasal spray, thermometer and some medicines in a coffee mug.

Pro tip: you can even take this recovery kit as a gift to a friend who is feeling sick.

In addition to being a smart holder, the cup also doubles as a soup drinking utensil (yes, our mugs are microwave and dishwasher safe)!

Every time your friend takes a sip, they'll be reminded of your thoughtfulness for sure.

3. Baking: 5-minute cup-cake bakes

Everyone who loves self-baked cakes knows how problematic living alone can get when you’re craving a homemade brownie.

This is when 5 minute cake bake recipes come to the rescue! Make only as much portions as you can have, nothing goes to waste that way!

Get, set, bake!

You just need some basic ingredients or a readymade flour-cake mix along with your microwave safe mug. Here’s one mug recipe to bake an eggless cake in Microwave.

This is a perfect use for your quality mugs.

    4. A plant potter

    If your mug's handle is broken.. you can still repurpose it for stationary purposes where you do not need it to be moved around a lot. Planting a mini plant in them is one we absolutely love!
