Works for Me Wednesday - Container lids

This week's Works for Me Wednesday is about kitchen organization.

My favorite tip about organizing my kitchen is that I always store the lids for my containers ON the container! I used to have my lids filed in a spare dish drainer that I had put up in my cabinet. Then I'd have to look all through my lids to find the one I wanted. It was always the last one I looked at.

I also used to have 47 lids but only 35 containers. Or something like that. Now, if I see there is not a container for that lid, I get rid of the container.

Since I have the lid on my container, I can pull out the container in one fell swoop (wasn't that poetic?) and be ready to go. Also, with lids on, my containers stack neatly on top of each other.

It just works for me!

I should do this! I've never done it because I didn't think I had enough cupboard space for all the lidded bowls, but you're soooo right. I've got like 7 bowls and 32 lids. Time to clean 'em out! Blessings, Whitney

Another plus to keeping the lids on is that no dust settles inside the containers during long periods of storage. I hate when that happens.
