How do you store all your K-cups?

I got my new Keurig TSV, the 48 K-cups, and I also bought the Holiday assortment of K-cups. Now I need some advice on how to store my K-cups. Any suggestions?

I store a variety in the Keurig carousel, and then store the rest in the boxes in a cabinet.

I use the carousel for my guests, and I keep all my varieties in their storage boxes in my pantry. I get the 22/24 count boxes from Green Mountain Coffee, they have a slanted opening, so you can easily grab your choice even if they are stacked.

In my Keurig carousel (sp?). I have several flavors on hand so I Iike the ability to easily see the flavors v.s. shuffling through a box. Back-ups are stored in their original boxes tucked away.

I have a basket next to my Keurig with all my k-cups in it.

Thanks, ladies, for all your good suggestions! I found an old, large Tupperware container and put the Holiday Assortment in that container (worked slick). Is the carousel available on QVC? If so, do you have an item number?

I didn't want to take up counter space with my K-cups, so, having 4 different flavors, I put each flavor in one of the plastic tube-type bags that our Sunday papers come in. The Sunday bags are larger than the daily ones and they each will hold a full box of the k-cups. Easy to tuck into my cabinets and I'm recycling.

I have all different coffees and a lot of different teas so for me its best to have a k cup holder. that way I can spin it around and chose what my family wants to drink.

I bought the Breville carousel from Bed Bath and Beyond with a 20% coupon. It's just like the keurig one, holds 30 k-cups, looks good on the counter. The rest I store in the cabinet.

Just getting started with K-cups and I stored an assortment in a medium size Lock n Lock and have it next to the Keurig. Don't think I want a "holder" as I don't have much counter space. Now I have to find a place for all the boxes of K-cups.

I dump all of mine in a huge wicker basket that has a pretty bow and everyone can take their pick. It's much easier that way.

I have the Keurig on the countertop, and the drawer under it is where
I put all the K-Cups, all in order, with like ones grouped together. I
hate when I have to use one and then there's a hole to be filled!
(I'm very organized.)

I have an 8 x 10 kitchen with counters only on two sides, so really very little counter space. I love to cook, but it's a real production to do anything with so little space. I don't know if I'd have room for the K-cup holder that Q stocks. No drawer space either.

I'm the same way. Limited drawer and counter space. I also have way too many Temp-tations sets to store--but I use all of them. That is why I got the mini Keurig and don't want to get a holder for the K-cups. Don't need more "stuff" out on the limited counter space I have. Love the little Mini--it's cute and I'm happy with the coffee.

I also have mine in the spinning chrome holder. Nice to show the variety there. Extra are in a nice basket on my bakers rack. Also wanted to remind everyone, think it was also posted here. Register your machine on Keurig website and you can get two free boxes, plus 10 percent off and free shipping. Just buy 4 boxes at once. Also whatever you place in your shopping cart first will be the free ones so place your higher boxes first. (really did not think that would work but it did) I decided to take advantage of that and buy the more expensive cafe mocha specialty coffee by cafe express, they are more expensive 17.95 also got the new chai latte. Anyway all four boxes came to 28.00 something with free shipping. A good way to try some of the new ones and more expensive coffees.
Buy the way I love my new cinnamon quiet model - not that I didnt like my last years model but boy is this one quiet compared to that one.

We use the Keurig carousel. K20031
It doesn't take up much room.

There are at least 3 styles of racks that can hang on the wall. They hold the K-cup boxes -- some hold 4 boxes some hold more.
I've seen two different black styles, one metal, one plastic and another one made out of wire.

I found this rack online today, it holds up to 48 kcups and attaches under the cabinet.

I also use the carousel on the counter and I bought it at BB&B using their coupon. I keep flavored k-kups on one tier, decaf in another, and regular in the last tier. I keep the extra boxes in a cabinet. They have multiplied like my lock n lock containers have! On the advice of posters here, I tried several new varieties (Glazed Donut for one!) and they just arrived today. I need more storage!
I like the idea of using a basket to put them in, and also of storing them in the drawer beneath the Keurig. I would have to clean out my drawer first to do that!

As I mentioned, I keep mine in the carousel, which I love - but if I could forfeit the drawer space underneath the machine I would go for that!

We have a pretty large island in our kitchen and I keep a wicker basket on it filled with my K-Cups.
