Hola Molly

They are both common. Poner is used for a more general meaning of "to put" [something somewhere] and "meter" is used for "putting something inside something":

Metí la ropa en el armario/Puse la ropa en el armario. 
I put the clothes in the wardrobe.

If it we are talking about putting something on something (not in), then we can only use "poner".

Meter is used when putting something "inside".

I hope this clarified things.
