I am currently trying to go through my entire house to clean, purge and organize. The food storage container cabinet was my first stop in the kitchen. This cabinet was really, really bad....I mean try to cram stuff in real quick and slam the door before everything falls out, bad.
I started by dragging everything out on my kitchen floor. I then went through each container and anything that was broken, seriously worn or missing a lid got tossed. I then washed all the "keepers" and was left with this.
|Ahhh...my kingdom for a lid! How many times have you asked yourself that when trying to find a matching lid for a container?|
|Note: If you can't find a box with an opening you like, simply use a regular box and cut your own opening using a box cutter.|
The solution to that issue was solved by a roll of Contact Paper (peel and stick shelf liner) I found laying in the bottom of my pantry. Shelf paper can be wiped clean, so I why not use it cover the box? Problem solved.
I covered the entire box (inside and out) with contact paper.
Now I not only am I able to keep all the lids in one place, I can easily flip through the lids and find the one I need.
Hope you found this tutorial helpful, thanks for stopping by and hope to see you again soon. For more storage container and organizing ideas be sure to check out the Organization Section of my blog and happy crafting!
