The modern family has a big problem—a messy kitchen. Food comes in containers of varying shapes and sizes, and it is nearly impossible to stock a pantry or refrigerator in a way that uses space efficiently. However, bulk food storage containers have changed all of that. It’s now easy to keep your kitchen tidy and save space at the same time. Use these easy steps to organize your kitchen with bulk food storage containers. 1. Figure out which foods you have that can be stored in bulk food storage containers. Cereal, especially the kind bought in huge bags at the grocery store, is the perfect candidate for these containers. So are oatmeal, rice, beans, and most baking products. Additionally, if you buy spices in bulk, food storage containers will help you keep them fresh and out of the way until they are needed. 2. Now that you know what kind of foods you have to store in your storage containers, evaluate the space you have in your kitchen. Measure your pantry openings and heights to make sure that you only buy containers that will fit. Find a good place in your kitchen for storing containers of all different shapes and sizes—the containers won’t do you any good if you have to clear out your entire pantry to get to something you need! 3. Go shopping for your bulk food storage containers. If you can find them in sets, you can save money and have sets that will fit neatly together in your pantry and cupboards. However, you could find a better deal buying them separately! If you do, just make sure that all of the containers you’re buying will fit in your cupboards and not leave you with a cramped space or with too much leftover space. 4. You’ll need a black marker and some labeling tape. Take out all the foods you want to put in your containers and begin putting them in the containers. As you do so, label each container with a piece of tape that has the food name and current date written on it. It saves you time when you’re looking for food and you’ll be able to keep an eye on which foods need to be thrown away or replaced.
