It's safe to say that every experienced homemaker has an extensive collection of plastic containers to store prepped meals, leftovers or baon in—however, if you're not careful, it can easily take over your kitchen and create an unslightly mess. To make sure things are under control, check out these organizing ideas:


Dedicate an entire section of your cupboard for plastic and glass containers. To keep lids from being an eyesore, gather them into plastic bins and label them respectively. 


Who says pegboards are only for hanging cookware? These slide-out cabinet inserts keep different containers separate and neat-looking. Make sure to group similar items together for an efficient system. 


Dividers make a big difference, too! If you have a lot of plastic containers, these keep them from sliding around and mixing in drawers. Arranging them by size also helps a lot in creating a tidy chest. 


Plate racks are great for segregating lids—the best part? You can see everything in one glance so you don't have to worry about rummaging through piles of containers. 


Repurpose a magazine rack and hang it on the inside of your cabinet door for accessible storage whenever you need to store leftovers in the fridge. For bigger collections, you can add two racks on either side.
