Utilize every inch of cabinetry space with these genius food storage container hacks that will keep your supplies organized and easy to access.
Rescue a Cabinet Corner Shelf
Sort your lids by size or container type, and arrange them on a three-tier shelf as you see fit. Print labels to make sure nobody in the house gets mixed up. Label by size, type, color—whatever works best for your household.
Find a place for a magazine holder in your cabinet and flip it on its side. From there, it’s easy to stack water bottles on top of each other and to keep them from toppling or taking up unnecessary space. Keep your water bottles within reach and in plain sight, plus have fun decorating your magazine holder or purchase one with a pattern you love.
Gain additional storage space by sliding an undershelf basket into place in your cabinet. Fill it with sorted food storage container lids, then place the containers underneath their corresponding lids. It’s a quick, easy, and affordable way to make the most of a limited amount of space.
Sliding Storage Trays
Tired of blindly fumbling around in a dark cabinet for containers and lids? Create your own makeshift pullout cabinets by placing lightweight acrylic trays on each of your cabinet shelves. To make sliding your trays out a little easier, cover the bottom of your cabinet shelf with an adhesive liner. Organize your food storage containers as you see fit, and say good-bye to the dread of digging through your cabinets when the container you need goes missing.
Keep cabinets from getting chaotic and avoid mismatched items with this easy compartmentalizing hack. In a lower drawer or pullout shelf, flip book bins on their sides and use them to turn your single storage area into several separate sections. Stack corresponding food storage containers and lids, and store them together in their own ready-made compartments.
