I've Tried Multiple Nespresso Pod Organizers — and This $14 Amazon Find Is the Best
It should come as no surprise that I organized every square inch of my apartment last year. (Didn't we all?) I started with typical tasks, cleaning out my clothes closet, the coat closet, and the pantry. And in between each task, I grabbed a much-needed coffee—because decluttering and organizing requires energy. As my Nespresso brewed, I looked at the drawer housing my Nespresso pods. They rolled around the drawer, making it difficult to decipher what I had available, and I realized that this, too, needed a makeover.
Luckily, I found this two-piece kitchen drawer organizer from iDesign. The two square bins glide seamlessly into my tight kitchen drawer, unlike others I had tried in the past, and they each fit 20 pods. You can place them vertically or horizontally, depending on the drawer you are working with; mine sit horizontally, which displays all of my pods in an aesthetically pleasing way.

To me, their most significant feature is their durability. Even though I frequently slam my coffee drawer shut and am constantly replenishing the pods (I drink a lot of coffee), the bins don't crack. So far, the acrylic has shown no signs of wear and tear.
These organizers aren't specific to Nespresso pods, by the way—you can use them for whatever needs corralling, and Amazon shoppers have found tons of uses for them. One calls the organizer a must-have: "The Idesign organizers are very versatile and are available in useful sizes. I have a BUNCH! The acrylic is thicker, so they feel well made and will not easily break," they note, adding that "they can be cleaned easily, and contents can be viewed if they are stacked or higher up."
Another shopper confirms my durability assessment. "I have had this drawer organizer for several years now, and it is still going strong. It's a nice, thick clear plastic with some ribbing on the bottom, and it's very easy to clean. I have been using it in my kitchen drawer to organize some of my kitchen utensils instead of having a messy drawer where I can't find anything."Need to organize your Nespresso pods—or anything else?
