Store your cups in a drawer, not a cupboard

So much easier, you can see everything, you can reach everything! You use up all the space instead of just the front rows!

This will only be a small improvement to your life, but it will be an objective and tangible improvement, and who is turning that down these days?

Extra details:

I assume you don’t have a spare drawer — move the clingfilm or teatowels into the former cup cupboard, or put your ladles etc. in a jar on the bench.

If you have too many cups for the drawer, put your most-used and favourites in the drawer.

A piece of non-slip matting is nice underneath — the stuff you buy to stop rugs sliding around on wooden floors. Not crucial, just if you have any off-cuts lying around.
