Aussie Mum’s $1.80 Bunnings Hack Is Changing Actual Lives

If you’re the kind of person who’s always looking for a hack to improve your situation, be it your self or your home, then you’re going to freaking FLIP over this.

An Aussie mum has discovered - and put into practice - an incredible hack that makes organising her coffee pod machine an absolute breeze.

“I’ve tried lots of different ways of storing Nespresso pods — jars, boxes, you name it,” Gina Baynham told Kidspot.


Every time my husband comes home from the shop, he has bought new flavours to try and it drives me mad because I have to reorganise my storage all over again.”

“When I saw this idea on the Facebook group ‘Mums Who Organise’, I was so excited,” says Gina.

The idea involved a piece of PVC plastic from Bunnings at $1.80.

The mum-of-three from NSW immediately called her hubby, who was at the hardware store, to grab her a strip to test it out.

“It was so easy. It cost me $1.80 for the piece of PVC plastic at 2.4 metres in length,” Gina explains.

“I then cut it to 30 centimetre lengths with a sharp knife and stuck them to the underside of my kitchen cupboards with double-sided sticky foam that I bought in a craft shop for about $2.”


Gina, understandably, is chuffed about the result. as she has more bench space, and no mess.

“The kitchen looks so uncluttered it has cleared up my bench surfaces. Next time my husband comes home from the Nespresso shop with new varieties all I will need to do is stick a few more lengths of PVC and I will have unlimited capsule storage,” she gushes.

“The only skill involved was getting the gap wide enough to slide the capsule in without it being so loose that it would fall out.” BYO ruler.
