Using my Nespresso machine became a way more budget-friendly activity when Trader Joe’s began selling OriginalLine-compatible pods a few months back. I now have no excuse to not have a stockpile of coffee at all times, which is awesome, but all of those pods do have to be stored somewhere.

I used to keep pods in a glass jar with a lid, but as my collection grew, I realized I’d need a larger storage container. I was hoping to find something both classy looking and practical (and, of course, affordable), and I couldn’t have been happier when I discovered this lidded box on Amazon.

The box is great because it’s spacious enough to hold my current collection of 30-plus pods (I like having various flavor options at my disposal, ok?!) but is compact enough in size that it can easily be stashed on a shelf or in a cupboard. Because it’s technically intended to store essential oil bottles, it came with little wooden dividers, but these are removable. They actually do fit Nespresso pods perfectly if you place them upside down, which would be a neat storage system if you swear by just one flavor. However, since I like to see what color pod I’m grabbing before I make my coffee, I opted to take this piece out.
