Are you ever at a loss about where to put certain things in your home? For whatever reason every way you try to organize something or tidy something it never seems to work out. That area seems to find its way back to chaos and clutter in a matter of weeks (or minutes, right?!). I have this issue with a couple areas in our kitchen. There are just some areas that refuse to stay tidy. One of those areas happens to be with our cup lids.Want to tame your cup lid clutter?

In the past I have attempted to tame our cup lid clutter by returning each of the lids to their cups. Well, I was the only one on board for that attempt so we know how well that turned out (it didn’t). Then, I tried to just corral all the lids into one area with a small bowl. Nope, didn’t like that way either. It seemed to take up too much room. I was, once again, at a loss.
Luckily for you (and me), I found the solution. I say I found it because I literally stumbled upon it while watching my friend, Andi’s video. She wasn’t even talking about the way she organized her cup lids, but it caught my eye while listening to how she organizes other parts of her kitchen. Interested in her video? You can check it out on her website, Good Life Organizing. Or, I have added the direct link here.
As soon as I saw this video I knew it was an answer to one of my problems. I pulled out my stash of Command Hooks and got busy. This project took me 30 minutes to complete. And that’s including all the pictures I was taking along the way to share with you.
So, are you ready to tame your cup lid clutter? I have included exactly what you need to do and how you need to do it.

- command hooks (these are the exact ones I used)
- Gather all your cup lids, this is actually a great time to go through them and declutter if needed.
- Count how many hooks you will need.
- Making sure you have enough room, place the lid on the hook and mark the placement off with a pencil.
- Move to your next spot and mark the placement there as well. I marked my whole row before I placed the command hooks.
- Take your ruler and make sure all your marks are even across your row.
- Begin placing your hooks on that row.
- Repeat each row until done.
There is a certain type of Command Hook you have to use for this project since you probably have different types of lids. This one is the command hook that works best for this project. What makes this command hook great for this project is the hook moves if needed to fit your lid better.
If you have younger kids who can get their own drinks, put their lids on the bottom row so they are able to reach them.
I didn’t inform anyone in my house what I was doing. When our daughter walked in, as I was finishing up, her response said it all. She said, “Wow Mom, that’s so cool. I love that. Can you make sure you put them low enough so I can reach them.” I knew it was a winning project with that response.
I hope this is one of those projects that excites you as much as it did me. It is such a simple fix to a frustrating problem. And it’s one I wished I had thought of. But, am so grateful I have a friend like Andi who did. If you loved this idea, I would love it if you shared it with all your friends. The share buttons are at the end (or beginning) of this post.
