It's important to have enough cups to hand in your kitchen, but too many in one cabinet can quickly become messy. Not only are cups that can't be stacked prone to looking cluttered, but they also take up precious cupboard space. Whether you have a small kitchen or just not enough cabinets to work with, a lack of space to put items away properly can quickly lead to a mess. Luckily, there is a way to solve your cluttered cabinet problem, and it involves hanging your cups from the insides of your cabinets.

Similarly to how hanging your mugs from shelves using hooks looks both stylish and functional, utilizing a product like the Sophico Yogurt Organizer will free up space while keeping your cup collection in good order. Though it's designed to go in a fridge, this handy item will get your cabinets in tip-top shape, too. Simple and affordable, you'll be able to beat kitchen cabinet clutter once and for all with this super easy cup storage hack.

Never deal with annoying cup crowding in your cupboard again

To get started, grab your chosen organizer and stick it firmly in place per the instructions. You might want to hold it in place for a few seconds to ensure it's properly stuck, as this hack hinges on the organizer staying up. It's also a good idea to close your cupboard door once the organizer is in place to make sure it closes properly. If not, you might have to adjust or re-measure and buy a smaller organizer. Now all that's left to do is to screw your cups into the slots of the organizer. 

Repeat this until all of your cups are in place and fitted properly. You should be left with a good amount of space beneath the hanging cups, essentially freeing up room for containers and whatever else you want to keep in your now-organized cabinet. If you have lots of cups, we recommend either buying more than one organizer if possible or hanging the ones that take up the most space.

This hack won't work to organize all types of cup

Though ingenious, there are some situations in which this trick might not work. The first one is if your cups are the wrong shape or size. As the style of organizer used for this hack is designed to hold yogurt pots, a cup with a mouth that's too big or small won't attach properly and may fall down. This isn't the end of the world, but it will defeat the purpose of saving space in your cabinet. This hack also shouldn't be used to store glassware, just in case anything does happen to fall.

Another thing to keep in mind is that if you use large cups, you won't actually have much space underneath once they have been stacked. To avoid wasting time, we recommend measuring the height of your cups and the cabinet so you can work out if stacking them will actually give you more space. If not, it's probably best just to store your cups as usual, though you could try placing the yogurt organizer against the cupboard wall and stacking the cups at a sideways angle to see if this is a more effective stacking method. Overall, this hack is still well worth trying and is a creative way to elevate your cupboard storage game.
