K Cup Storage + Organization

Cleaning… is totally not my thing.
I’ll put blogging, reading, eating, playing, banging my head against the wall, partying, and just about anything else before cleaning.  But, being the neurotic little freak that I am, I also can’t handle a messy house.  So now that everything I own is moved into the new house and put away [and by away, I mean put anywhere it will fit!] its time to organize the cah-rap outta this place!  Everything needs a home!  Starting with my morning cup-o-yum.
The drawer closest to the Keurig [my darling coffee robot] was naturally the best place to store these babies.  Luckily I’m a pack-rat and just so happened to have several plastic cutlery organizers that I’ve been hoarding holding onto since college.  I’ve learned to never ever throw away an old drawer organizer, they can be re-purposed into just about anything.  Just maybe don’t try to wear one as a hat.  Anywho!  I’m a little embarrassed to admit how flipping excited I was when the K Cups fit perfectly into the caddy.
But then again, I’m not embarrassed of this, and I totally should be =)

For those of you that use K Cups… where do you keep your stash?
 
For everyone else, which is your favorite: Coffee or Tea?
I could never choose. I love green tea as much as I love my cawwfee <3

    I have a over the cabinet door basket I throw them in. It’s not orderly but I get quite a few compliments on it!

  • Rugrat Chow!

    Another great idea!! My K-cups are “embarrassingly” thrown into the closest drawer!!

  • Ohmygosh I LOVE that idea!!!!! I bet it look so cute and cheery too! =)

    LOVE your clean drawer!  Last summer (or maybe the summer before), Target had stackable plastic bento boxes like the ones at http://www.plasticashop.com/mm5/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=P&Product_Code=BNTOBXR (though much cheaper), and though it looked great on my counter, I wasn’t really using it too often.  Discovered recently that it fits K-cups perfectly (8 in each of the 4 lunch box layers), so I have different types of K-cups in the different levels, and have the bento box (which is red, yellow, and orange) right next to my red mini Keurig.  Makes me happy to find a home for my k-cups and a use for the bento box!

    it really is i got mine new at the good will  for only 75.00  our  good will gets alot of target merchandise and  when i saw it on the shelf i was like everyone out of my way lol!!
    we  got a dolche gusto once there it  didnt  work so i just boxed it and had my  hubby  return to target hey 50 bucks  was better then the  89.00 at target and  thats where it was from anyway  we did an exchange!

    i use a huge apothecart jar next to my keurig to keep them in this way i open  up the lid and then pull one out my fave lately is  kaluah and i add some almond joy creamer yummm or the jamaican me crazy  love adding the almond joy cream

  • It is one of the best inventions ever! =) I use mine for teas and cocoa too!

    Sometimes a random bolt of inspiration will strike and you’ll find the perfect place for them in your home! I couldn’t shell out space or money for the little caddies and organizers they make and after almost a year of having kcups everywhere i realized they would fit in a silverware tray! You’ll find you spot =) Keep me updated! <3

    My husband surprised me with a Keurig last Christmas, and I love it!  I’m the only coffee drinker in our house, so it’s perfect for us. I can make just one cup whenever I want!  And it’s great for making hot chocolate or cappuccino (the boxed powder kind) too.  Right now, I keep my K cups in their boxes and stack them in our lazy susan.  I don’t love this arrangement, but we have limited drawer/cabinet space.  I like the K cup organizers – both the spinner and the drawer thing that sits under the coffee maker – but we just don’t have the space.  One of these days, I’d like to move the cabinet that is right above the Keurig up all the way to the ceiling and put an open shelf below it.  That might be where the K cups end up.  We’ll see!  🙂

  • I don’t have K cups but, WOW. I love your drawer. It is so clean and organized. I would love for you to stop by and link up to More the Merrier Monday. It is open through Wednesday so you have plenty of time to link up. http://diyhshp.blogspot.com

  • Is the Keurig worth it? I’m so tempted to ask for one for Christmas… but our kitchen is so small… decisions decisions.

  • Fantastic job! It turned out great and gorgeous colours. Thanks for sharing.
    Hope to see you on my blog:)

  • Blasphemy!!! Coffee trumps tea ANY day…decaf at night! 😉

    I love how everything fit so perfectly! Are those the little bowls you were telling me about?

    And um, darlin’, I love you to pieces, but a HAT?! Come now…I hear a story behind this…and I’m sure it involves plenty of alcohol! ;P

    I go back and forth with getting a Keurig….have a coupon that expires at the end of the year for one so I’d better hurry up and figure it out! But I am quick to brew up a cup for myself wherever I may come across one! Recently I tried chocolate glazed donut and that was a delicious afternoon pick-me-up! I think I saw pumpkin spice at my local Ralphs and it made me wish I had a Keurig! Love your drawer…perfect for all your K-cups and the little coffee accessories! I am in the process of organizing EVERY room in the house as well! A never ending process it seems! Congrats on the beautiful new place! XO

  • I keep K-cups in my turn cart, but that doesn’t keep very many visible. The rest are just stashed in cabinets. I love your organization of them though! One of my favorite K-Cups is the Southern Pecan.

  • I am totally a coffee girl….although I do love a good cup of tea as well 🙂

  • Good job with the organizing! I’m definitely a tea granny. While I love the smell of coffee, the taste is kind of gag-inducing. I wish that I liked it, because it smells heavenly!

  • Donut Shop coffe is my faveeeeee! Have you tried their chocolate donut and cinnamon roll flavors? If not…you must 🙂 I just keep them in their boxes in a cabinet but your idea is great and convenient!

  • I could NEVER pick between coffee and tea… and I probably couldn’t live without either of them. Warm caffeinated beverages are my lifeline. I’ve never tries K-cups but they look really delicious 🙂

  • I am a proud cawwfee wh0re! And I’m not prejudice with tea 😉

  • Liz @ Southern Charm

    I’m obsessed with K-cups. And the fact that my work let’s us choose our own flavor, if we want, each order … yea.
    At work we keep them neatly stacked in a cupboard. My friend, however, keeps her in her hold suguar canaster. She was recently married and got a matching set. Because this one doesn’t say sugar, she re-used it as a holder for her K-cups.

  • Yeah I don’t think I could choose a favorite between coffee and tea. They both have their time and place!

  • coffeeeeeeeeeeee

    Although the boy, you know, the one that eats nothing but processed crap, was telling me coffee was bad for me (ironic) so I went without it for a couple of days just to prove I could. HA!

  • I’m definitely a coffee girl! But I just use regular old coffee …nothing fancy! Of course, I’d take a Pumpkin Spice Latte over my normal coffee any day! 😉

  • Shari

    I have one of the carousels where I store them on the counter. I love it! 🙂

  • Lauren

    I prefer tea always! Haha 🙂

  • I so feel your pain. I cannot stand a messy house, but I also hate cleaning it. I need some serious organization guidance. Now I wish I had hoarded all my college house stuff… and thanks for the message on the Nole stuff! I bet its been busy for you. I’m excited to comb through your archives. Holla. – J

  • Will you please come to my house and organize? I have the best intentions and yet…
    Its clean and uncluttered, just a little disorganized.

  • are you trying to make me jealous that i don’t have a keurig?

  • I’m most definitely a tea person. But at the coffee shops are so nice and always make me a chai latte without the coffee. 🙂

  • What a perfect storage unit! I have my k-cups sitting in their dang box…I need one of those!

  • I’m a total tea hussy. I’m obsessed. I have like 4 different boxes of tea K-Cups, and that doesn’t include my old school regular tea bags. Buuuuuuut. We do have some Donut House coffee for Shane. <3 [And whenever a recipe calls for coffee!]

    But I’m pretty much a Keurig fanboy. Lol.

  • Oh hey. Your K-Cup Collection is AWESOME. We are getting a keurig for our wedding 🙂 I can’t wait.

    I love Gloria Jean’s Butter Toffee!!

  • i NEED to learn to drink coffee. Like, NEED. mainly because th k-cups are so cute

    wanna come organzie Kurt and my silverware drawer? its ATROCIOUS

    xooox

  • Oh so smart! Love that drawer! I keep my tasmio pods in a media box of all things, right next to my maker. It works, but after seeing this I am wondering if I have it in me to ditch my junk drawer right below and stash my goodies there instead.

    Love ya girl!

    xoxo,
    Jen

  • I have two drawers from Bed Bath & Beyond (can you say 20% off coupons) that stores the k-cups and the Keurig sits on top of the drawers. The rest are in the “coffee cart” which used to be our microwave cart but now houses everything coffee.

    COFFEE and the dark chocolate hot chocolate.

  • ooh i love k cups. i want to try Dunkin Donuts k cup!

    i keep them in this:

  • I’m bad, I keep my kcups in the box and POP the back open along the edges. My parents have a kcup swivel holder, sits on the counter and pretty nifty. My current fav coffee kcup flavors…pumpkin spice and island coconut mmmm

  • I have a Nespresso, which also uses the pods – how freaking convenient and awesome are these little things?! The Nespresso pods come in different colors, so I decided to go all artsy-fartsy and order pretty pods so I can store them in a glass jar on the counter. I like to think of them as installation art. 😉

  • I love this post because it involves coffee! 🙂 Right now, my Kcups (and I have many!) are in little containers in a cabinet. I would like to get the Kcup Drawer Holder from Bed Bath & Beyond soon. My favorite kcup right now is definitely the seasonal pumpkin spice!

  • I love all flavors of K-cups that I’ve tried, but my favorites are the Pumpkin Spice coffee and the English breakfast tea. This is what I use to organize my huge stash: http://www.bedbathandbeyond.com/product.asp?SKU=17470116 It fits under my Keurig.
