Before and After Kitchen Cupboard - Storage Containers

Over the next few weeks I am going to concentrate on showing some before and after pictures and giving some insight into how I have worked to achieve the results you see in the after images.


This week I am decluttering and organising storage containers in a kitchen cabinet.

When looking at a collection of containers with lids there are a couple of ways to approach this. You can store the containers by stacking them and keep the lids separate - this is good if you have limited space but can lead to frustration trying to find the correct lid. Or you can stack the containers with the lids on - the method I used in this example.


First of all, here as an example of a small space where the lids have to be kept separate from the bases in order for them to fit:




There is a lot of batch cooking done here to go into the freezer - just in case you were wondering why anyone would use so many containers!! ( also a lot of take aways were consumed in the making of this blog!!!)


Here is the before picture of the actual cupboard to be tackled.


As you can see there is a mix of food storage containers, water bottles, travel cups and various other items all strewn in together.



STEP ONE!


Empty the cupboard completely.
