Coffee Cup Issue

Almost embarrased to ask this but figure others have the same issue.

We are trying to figure out how to hang, stack, or whatever the coffee cups we take with us. Tried to find something to put between them in the cabinet but still rattling so thinking about hanging them from some type of hook but afraid they will fall.
Other then stacking them with a wash cloth in between what have others of you done to solve this aggravating issue?

Our shelves have a carpet liner on them and we use little cardboard dividers between them and our glasses. The cardboard dividers are like the ones in cases of booze. It works for us.

We camp with nice china cups, plates, and bowls. To save the wear and tear on them and reduce the rattle we use rubber slip proof mats in the cupboard, and 6 x 6 squares of the same material between the plates and bowls. You can buy the squares at the Dollar Store or Walmart. We also have a selection of travel mugs for the drive and campfire.

We only have 2 real ceramic coffee cups. The rest are those disposable foam things - use once and toss. I wrap those 2 real cups in that foam no-slip stuff, tuck them in amid the plastic food-saver things and they're fine. We have no reason to carry good dinnerware or fancy glasses with us.

Pretty clever idea. I think I'll try that. Currently we keep our ceramic mugs wrapped in the brown paper that we purchased them in. So far, so good.

Just put out a post if you need help drinking all that booze, this forum will be there for you, oh the things we do to help a fellow RVer. Either I drive really smoothly or I'm deaf enough that I don't hear ours rattle.

We bought coffee cups that are a little wider at the top. We dry them good before we put them away and flip them upside down on the no slip shelf liner. The do not touch each other that way and cannot rattle.

We use something like these ... the base fits our tray/mug holder at the driver/passenger location ... they don't tip ... insulated ... don't seem to rattle in storage if you leave a little space between them.

A few years ago at The Big Tent in Quartzsite, DW bought some plastic cabinet organizers. She uses them for cups and glasses also in bathroom cabinets. Don't remember the company's name but their product is similar to Cupboard Corral @ corralplastics.com.

This.

Also having a well built solid MH helps.

If this a really a "aggravating issue" for you, you must lead a relatively stress free life.

If the old saying of "A place for everything, and everything in it's place" is somewhat followed, rattles will be few and far in between.

All IMHO
