Kitchen Cabinet Storage

While organizing your kitchen this month, are you having any dilemmas as to how to reorganize some of your cabinets?

Just so you know, you aren’t alone.

Today, let’s break down the cabinet that houses Tupperware/Rubbermaid/Martha Stewart or any other type of plastic food storage containers.

The first thing you will want to do is take everything out of the cabinet .

Remove any containers that don’t have matching lids!  For that matter, remove any lids that don’t have matching containers as well!


Consider another area that these containers without lids may be used and move them to that area.

Remove any containers that have been melted and/or stained that you really don’t want to keep anymore.  You know the kind I’m talking about!  Go ahead, let them go!!

Take an inventory of the remaining containers and determine if you need to purchase new containers and if so, identify sizes.  Here are some options for replacement.


Some people prefer to have the lids attached to the container while being stored.  If you have enough space available, that’s a great option.
You may already know that my favorite containers are Martha Stewart’s collection, which I used here when this pantry was reorganized.  

For those of us, who don’t have plenty of storage space for our containers, the lids are better stored separately.

Here are some interesting items to keep these containers and lids in order.

Now that our food storage containers dilemma is solved, what’s our next victim???

Happy Organizing!

I recently did this too. Sorted through all of the raggedy ones. Often scratch my head and wonder how I ended up with more lids than containers, giggle. I keep mine in the lazy Suzanne cabinet next to the sink. Thank you for sharing your lovely blog at the Thursday Favorite Things blog hop xo

Thanks for stopping by! Great idea about using a lazy Suzanne for your lids. I just might have to try!
