If you have watched many of my YouTube videos you might notice that i have quite the collection of kitchen gadgets and appliances. So many in fact I honestly don't know where to put them at the end of the day. Although I love my current apartment vs my old apartment the one thing I am lacking is kitchen cupboards and my pantry. This is where I used to store many of those gadgets I accumulate, So of coarse that only leaves my counter-tops for storage.
This has probably been the craziest year I have had in all my life. Several life changes, mother to a 2 year old (who is now almost 3), new jobs, and the most traveling I have ever done in a single year. But the point of mentioning that is to further explain how important it is to have consistency, and organization. I also spent the last year and a half housekeeping privately, and for about 7 months of 2012 cleaning for a local green cleaning agency in Seattle. During my time there, it became increasingly frustrating to go in someones house, on a strict time limit, and have to clean their house from top to bottom. I would have to say my least favorite part of the job was to clean for people for had excessive amounts of clutter on their counter-tops. So in a way it really pushed me to strive for better organization within my own home. After all there is nothing worse than cleaning professionally all day and coming home to clean as well.
This is where the Coffee Stack and Spice Stack Come in super handy. Like many of the houses I have cleaned, and like many of your homes, I had a counter-top standing spice rack as well as a counter-top K-Cup carousel for our Kuerig coffee maker. Each Product probably took up about a cubic foot of space. it might not seem like a lot, but in my tiny kitchen, to be able to clear off that much space makes a world of difference.
In addition to space saving, the Coffee Stack and Spice Stack actually hold more K cups and Spice bottles than my old storage products. For example, my K cup Carousel only held 32 K cups, and with the Coffee Stack I'm able to store 40 K cups in a drawer like storage system that pulls out and lowers so you can easily find your K cup of choice. It has four drawers which each hold 10 K cups. I find this especially nice to designate shelves between myself, my husband and our roommate/nanny. They also both feature non skid rubber feet to keep the device securely in place so you never have to worry that it might fall out of your cupboard, and they are also stackable! The Coffee Stack measures: 9 1/4" H x 5 1/4" W x 10 7/8" L.
My old spice rack only held 15 jars, and my Spice Stack now holds 18 full size bottles, or 32 small bottles! That's a huge difference! that's up to 2 times as many spices! It even comes with 48 pre printed labels that you can easily place on the outside of each drawer for easily locating the spices you need in a pinch. The Spice Stack measures: 8 1/2" H x 8" W x 10 3/4" D. and also has non slip rubber feet like the Coffee Stack and is also stackable.
I actually love these products so much I plan to get one of each for my mom and step mom, because like myself, they also are in need of some better organizational tools.
