Organize Plastic Storage By Labelling The Shelves!
Members Were Sparked
In order to keep my Tupperware & other plastic storage in a structured place [and to help my hubby put it where it belongs!],I labelled the different shelves in the cupboard [yes-we have one cupboard devoted to storage of plastic!] according to SHAPE. The bottom shelf has all the circular shaped containers,the middle shelf has the squares/rectangles and the top shelf has all the liquid containers. It has helped in the ORGANIZATION OF PLASTIC WARE & helped my hubby assist me in putting it away!

I like to use my Sundays to make meals for the rest of the week. I chop my veggies and put them in plastic storage bowls for my lunches. I cook one thing in the slow cooker to eat on all week. I portion it out for my meals so I never over eat it.
Plastic storage containers, slowcooker, and a meal plan.
I read about this idea in a magazine discussing organizing storage of canned food.It is about labelling the SHELVES OF THE PANTRY closet . I decided to try this and it works for me! I list all my canned soups/dinner mixes in one area;cereals,breakfast foods,coffee in another area and so forth. I t has helped me in a variety of ways--my hubby & child[who can read at his young age of 3] know where the various foods go without HAVING TO ASK ME and my 3 yo puts away only the lightweight..,
...items like paper towels on the bottom shelf. He practices his reading,my hubby LEARNS where things go,I can see if I 'm out of different items and I GET SOME HELP FROM THE FAMILY!
I have started to use more shelves and plastic storage containers to organize things I want to keep. Tall shelves store more and you can see what you want right away. Also label and /or have see through containers. This works for toys, craft items and many other things. 250
