How to Store K cups: 6 Clutter-free Ways

How to store K cups is the subject of today’s post and is inspired by a question I was recently asked.  

How to Store K Cups - Six Clutter-free Ways - Neat Nest Organizing


Ask the Organizer:

Dear Robin,

I received a Keurig coffee maker for Christmas.  While I am thrilled with the system,  I am stumped as to what to do with all of the K cups that go with it.  I am concerned about the clutter the coffee pods create and the space that the boxes take up on my countertop. So, “How to store K cups?” is my question for you. 

Dear Friend,

Thank you for the question.  Hmmmm, this one really got me thinking, too 🙂   I have researched a few options and also came up with a few of my own.  How to store K cups – here they are:


How about this under cabinet K cup holder?

How about this under shelf coffee pod organizer that fits right in your cabinet?

  1. My parents have the under the coffee maker drawer (my mom is all about having a place for everything) and it works great. The K cups stay organized, and everyone has easy access. Also a good option for those with limited drawer and counter space. 🙂

    • Thank you, Shannon! It’s great to know that the drawer works so well “in real life.” I love the easy-access + all-in-one-place concept of it, too. So glad you shared that with all of us 🙂

  2. All of the ideas on how to store the K cups were great! I don’t have room for tower, so it’s great to see the other ideas. I probably will try the drawer organizers!

    • So glad the ideas were helpful for you, Patty! I would love to see a picture of your organized K cups when you’re done 🙂
