The advent of the single-serve coffee machine ushered in a wonderful era of hot coffee at the ready. And parents everywhere said, “HALLELUJAH!” But while the machines themselves have gotten smaller and more attractive, there’s still that pesky matter of how to store your coffee pods. Some people keep them in a drawer under the machine, or use one of those pod carousel things. But if you’ve got limited counter space, or just don’t like to look at them, this DIY coffee pod organizer may just be the answer to your coffee-on-demand prayers. It’s cheap, it’s visually appealing, and best of all, it’s easy to do!
Gina Baynham shared her DIY coffee pod organizer on a Facebook page for organization. People were blown away! So simple, yet so genius.
It honestly took me a minute to even spot the pods! Do you see them up there? Tucked discreetly away under the overhead cabinet? Now that’s what I call a coffee pod organizer. Now, I’m one of those people who sees a DIY and immediately assumes that the execution is far above my skill level. But this one looks and sounds SUPER easy.
All you need is PVC strips, which you can find at your local hardware store. You can use as many or as few as you’d like, depending on how many pods you have at any given time.
You even have some wiggle room as far as where you put them. It makes sense to place them near the coffee machine, like Gina did. But if you want them completely out of sight, you can even place them inside the cabinet that holds your coffee mugs, or in a pantry. You don’t even need to damage your cabinets with holes from screws; Gina used double-sided tape to attach her strips to the cabinet. Perfect!
I love easy, genius ideas that simplify your life and declutter your space. And this is one of the best I’ve seen!
