Those who are tired of rifling through their plastic container drawer in desperate search of a matching container and lid will be pleased to know there is a life-changing kitchen hack to help.
In this week’s Better Home Hacks, Better Homes & Gardens’ Dora Papas shares her tips for organising food storage containers in the kitchen cupboard or drawer so you’ll never be left with mismatched plastic containers again.
“You’re just a few steps away from having those neatly organised plastic containers you’ve always dreamt about,” she says.
To start, Dora says to work out which lid goes with which container and put them together.
Then, get all of the same sized containers and stack them, putting the lids inside.
“Take another large container and put your already-made stacks inside,” she says. “This might take a bit of puzzle work.”
When that’s done, store the lids inside the smaller containers or on the side of the big container.
“Store your big container in the cupboard and say goodbye to messy plastic containers,” she says.
