Storing Food Storage Items

In this day of easy take out, fast food, and limited eating time it is fast becoming a vital necessity to have a large quantity of food storage items in the home. However, unless the budding chef wants to have a cluttered kitchen it is necessary to learn how properly store food storage items. When you are finished using your food storage items, utilize these easy guidelines to help you take back your kitchen.

  • Empty containers. For the lids of empty containers, use a cake pan to store and organize everything. For the actual containers and bowls themselves, try to organize them by size and brand. Like brands are typically easier to stack together, and if they are stacked inside each other, they will take up less space than normal. To keep them from going all over the place if there is space left over in the cake pan, place the containers inside. Stack the lids on their edge, around, under, or off to the edge of the pan.
  • Bakeware. One of the more common type of food storage item in the home is actually something more properly used to cook food. When not being used, bakeware such as cake pans, pie tins, and cupcakes tins can be utilized in other ways. Each of these different cooking containers can be used to store items such other empty containers, dry packaged cooking ingredients or gravies and so on. If not being used to store other items, try to organize the cookware according to similarities in size and brand. Do this in the same manner as listed above in the empty containers.
  • Wraps. To keep items like rolled plastic wrap, waxed paper, or aluminum foil from falling out of the box when tearing, there are little tabs on the ends of the boxes to push in to hold the rolls in place. Stack the open cases on top of the unopened ones, while organizing similar wraps together.
