I love my Keurig. It is the best thing since slice bread, really. However, I don't like storing the K-cups. There just doesn't seem to be a good way to store the little cups. I don't have enough cabinet space to keep the cups in the boxes, and I don't have enough counter space for a carousel (I also am not particularly fond of the carousels either). So, my storage solution has been a basket filled with the K-cups that sits on top of the fridge. It stores them, but there is no organization and you have to dig to find your flavor. Not the best option, but it works.
And then a friend of ours told us about a drawer he saw at BB&B that sits under the Keurig and stores the cups. Genius! Why didn't I think of that? A quick Google search and I find it, priced at $25. Not terribly expensive, but not cheap. And it is sold out. Waa-waa.
Well that got my wheels a-turning. I could easily make or find a drawer for much cheaper, which is exactly what I did. Before Christmas, I found an awesome vintage metal cabinet for $2 while out thrift store trolling. This cabinet is going to be my new K-cup drawer holder:
It was super easy to re-purpose this cabinet into the drawer holder. Here is a quick how-to:
