If you have a bit more energy attack the containers:
There is no magical solution to manage containers and lids of all shapes and sizes. A helpful idea might be to store the lids separate from the containers, but I usually recommend to my clients to start over . Here is what you should look for in a container system:
- Choose two different sizes which have the same size opening , but come in two different depths. That way you can stack both sizes in the one neat pile, and ALL the lids fit on all the containers! Store the lids in one neat pile alongside your neat stack of containers. If you need more than two sizes, choose an additional two sizes with the same size opening and varying depths. ( Now you will have four different sizes of containers, in two uniform stacks)
- Have different kinds for meat and milk so they can be identified easily by anyone who uses your kitchen (round/square, blue/red , disposable/ Tupperware)
- I prefer the disposable ones because they come in a variety of sizes to choose from and stack beautifully. Make sure you always purchase the same brand so that when you restock , all the lids still fit all the containers.
- Although we usually choose a container according to the food we want to store in it, instead try choosing your container system according to the space you have available .
