People love $1.80 Bunnings hack

WHEN IT came to storing her massive haul of coffee pods at home, mum-of-three Gina Baynham had had enough.

Like a lot of coffee drinkers with a pod machine at home, keeping them in order somewhere that was easily accessible seemed like an impossible task.

"I've tried lots of different ways of storing Nespresso pods - jars, boxes, you name it," the NSW mum tells Kidspot.

"Every time my husband comes home from the shop, he has bought new flavours to try and it drives me mad because I have to reorganise my storage all over again."

That was until she stumbled across a genius Bunnings Warehouse hack online.

The quick and easy hack that changed everything

"When I saw this idea on the Facebook group 'Mums Who Organise', I was so excited," says Gina.

The idea involved a piece of PVC plastic from Bunnings at $1.80. The mum-of-three from NSW immediately called her hubby, who was at the hardware store, to grab her a strip pronto.

"It was so easy. It cost me $1.80 for the piece of PVC plastic at 2.4 metres in length," Gina explains.

"I then cut it to 30 centimetre lengths with a sharp knife and stuck them to the underside of my kitchen cupboards with double-sided sticky foam that I bought in a craft shop for about $2."

And just like that, everything was neat

With each strip holding around eight coffee pods and the kitchen bench cleared, Gina was thrilled with the result.

"The kitchen looks so uncluttered it has cleared up my bench surfaces. Next time my husband comes home from the Nespresso shop with new varieties all I will need to do is stick a few more lengths of PVC and I will have unlimited capsule storage," she gushes.

"The only skill involved was getting the gap wide enough to slide the capsule in without it being so loose that it would fall out."

It's a great storage hack for a space that would otherwise be unused.

Everyone is loving it

Gina shared her tip with the Mums Who Organise facebook page where she originally saw the tip, and it seems she is not the only one suffering from her lack of coffee storage space.

Her post with a simple 'how-to' guide has received over 100 comments from other members loving the idea.
