Thinking outside the Box..

I want to share with you what I think is a pretty cool idea for re purposing something I just had sitting in my kitchen collecting dust. For Christmas I received a generous gift from my in laws. A Keurig coffee maker! I was beside myself. I had been drooling wanting one for a while and I totally got one, weee! :)

They have been around a while. I am sure most know how it brews one cup at a time and you have to buy the K cups for it and such. Awesome idea. have to have something to hold all of your k cups in. They have many display organizers you can purchase. Not cheap. Really not something I want to throw money at either.

Me? I try to save the bucks as much as I can. So, thinking outside of the box I came up with a pretty nifty idea if I do say so myself! ;) Now, I may not be the first person to come up with this. But, be nice to me and let me think I did, ok? :)

Here is what I did:

Do you have one of these sitting around in your kitchen?

Yep, me too. I rarely use these spices honestly. I have a whole cabinet full of the regular ones that I use. So, really it just looks cool in the kitchen and it gives the illusion we are fancy cooks. ;)

I turned that into this:

Not too bad, eh?

Boom.Pow. Take that you expensive organizer things! :)
