She had found a couple of different simple life hacks online for how to store storage containers in an organized way. So she decided to combine the two diy ideas together. The nice part is, both of the items along with your food storage containers can be purchased at the dollar store so you can save a lot of money. They even have glass storage containers now which offer us a healthier way to store our food. All you'll need for the diy idea is a mesh file organizer, a dish drying rack, and a bin. You'll also need some screws and a drill.
First of all, you'll want to go through all of your storage containers and make sure that each one has a lid. If you're left with a container with no lid or a lid that doesn't fit onto a container, you should recycle it since you're probably not going to use it anymore. Now that you have all of your pairs, take the lids of the containers and put them on the drying rack. Another one of the simple life hacks is to organize them by size and shape, so you know where to look for a lid for your container. Next, get your bin or bins and start to stack all of the food storage containers as best you can. Put them inside of each other so that you can reduce the amount of space they take up and put them in the bin. Once everything is nice and organized, you can then place the bin and drying rack filled with containers and lids into your cabinet however it works in your particular cabinet.
Next up, get the mesh file organizer and place it on the inside of the door on your cabinet by drilling it in place with two screws. Then you can put in any other lids that didn't fit on the dish drying rack. When you're all done, you will definitely want to step back and admire your work. It's amazing how these diy ideas work so well to organize items that are usually pretty hard to organize. You can also use these tips for organizing other items like cleaning supplies or canned goods. Bins and baskets are key to organizing any room, and they just make it so much easier for us to find what we are looking for.
