I needed a holder for my Keurig K-cups but did not want to spend $25-$50 for it. I went to a local 2nd hand store and found a wooden revolving spice rack for $2.90. The cups fit perfectly in the holes and I can paint it to match my decor if I want.

I put the Keurig K cups into a large bowl, but it looked messy. There are lovely holders for purchase in stores (and some custom made ones on eBay that are quite tempting), but I was wondering if anyone had an alternative idea.

We bought ours from Bed Bath & Beyond with one of their coupons a couple years ago. I did a search, but don't see one exactly like it available. This is the closest, except it doesn't swivel:
It's just one sided, and stands close to the wall (we don't have much space, and the carousel types take up too much room), and it holds 25 cups. If we didn't have this one, I'd consider the drawer kind. It wouldn't take up more space since the machine sits on it, and you just close the drawer and they disappear!
Why not try using a basket from an old dishwasher.
It's frugal and free!
I don't know the dementions, but would they fit in the holes of one of those spice carosels?
Here is a metal one but you can find the wooden ones often at thrift shops.
Keurig just came out with a storage drawer that you put under your machine; it holds 36 k cups! It's great, takes up no room, and since we use the small machine, there is room on top of the drawer for a sugar bowl and a container for sweetener packets. I used my 5.00 off coupon from BB&B, so it ended up costing just under 20.00. Check it out at BB&B either online or your local store.
I bought the Breville one that Mrs. Story did too, also at Bed Bath and Beyond with their coupons. By the time you find an alternative that works, you will probably spend the same amount of money that you would have for the item that was meant to be used.
What about a wooden cigar box? if you search Google Images there are many beautiful designs.
I only purchase two different types and I store them in a pretty wicker basket that has a fabric liner. I think it's much prettier than the holders on the market.
I bought a wire basket that had four sections in it in the bath department at Walmart, I stack my Keurig pods in each section and put it by my Keurig coffee maker..
