Whether you're prepping your morning jolt of caffeine or brewing a soothing cup of tea, sorting through mismatched mugs and a jumble of tea bags and coffee grounds isn't an ideal way to start the day.

Fortunately, there are some smart ways to reorganize your cabinet to create a stylish and streamlined coffee and tea station, so you can easily treat yourself (and your guests) to the perfect cuppa.

Simply host Haley Cairo suggests pulling everything out of the cupboard and getting rid of anything you can-like old tea bags and mugs you rarely use.

Then look for ways to streamline what remains and make it work for you. Organizing boxes and bins can make it easy to keep the ingredients for your favorite fancy coffee drink in one spot, so you can simply grab and go.
