Food storage containers are a convenient tool to store leftovers or future meals. When storage containers become disorganized and you waste time trying to find the right lid for the right container, it can become very inconvenient. Fortunately, I have found an easy and time-saving method that help will organize your food storage containers and lids.
  • Toss or recycle any containers that are missing lids, or lids that are missing the container. This will save you a lot of time trying to locate them.

  • Keep containers piled together by shape: rounds together, rectangle together and square together.

  • Keep lids in Ziploc bags.

  • Use 2-3 Ziploc bags, depending on the amount of lids that you have.

  • Keep similar shaped lids together in the same bag.

  • Keep bags standing upright to avoid spilling.

  • To keep things organized, put containers and lids back where you found them.

Just a few simple steps that will save you a lot of time the next time you are trying to locate a food storage container and its lid.
