How should you store your food storage containers?

Food storage containers are a necessary component of our kitchens, but the clutter they cause can be a nuisance. Without a proper storage plan, you can end up with missing lids and mismatched containers toppling from your cabinets. 

Nakita who teaches busy mamas to simplify their lives from the renowned The Mama Manual is sharing some tips with you all,  about how to keep your food storage containers organized.

“Containers are like clothes – 80% of the time you are using the same 20% of your containers. That means that 80% of your containers are taking up precious space and increasing clutter tenfold”

– Nakita Mama Manual

If your container cupboard isn’t looking half empty most of the time, you definitely need to declutter it.

Go through your stash and do away with:

👉 odd bits and pieces without lids or missing parts

👉 broken or damaged containers

👉 the containers you hold on to ‘just in case’, yet never do

👉 the containers you’ve not used for years

Make a list of:

👉 the containers that you use just because there’s not a better alternative

👉 the containers you always seem to run out of

Work on replacing these slowly and donating your old ones.
