You’ve just finished dinner. You’re cleaning up and have some leftovers to put away in the fridge. You go to your container drawer or shelf and the hunt begins. The hunt for the perfect size container. If you’re lucky enough to actually find a container that’s the perfect fit – big enough to hold everything but not excessively big and taking up precious space in the fridge – you then have to find the lid. You dig around, pulling every container and mismatched lid out trying to find the right one. You know what I’m talking about don’t you? Venturing into that chaotic abyss of container land can be a frustrating experience! But I promise you it doesn’t have to be that way.
Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids
I’ve actually been using Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids for quite a while. And now that I have another set I did a major overhaul of my container drawer, tossing out all of those containers with no lids, or lids with no containers. I swear putting stuff in that drawer sometimes feels like the socks in the dryer mystery. They go in together but come out all alone. So, what’s the solution to solving the great container drawer dilemma? Well having containers and lids that not only stack together but snap together can be a big help.
I love how the lids in this kit snap together. It really does make locating the right lid much easier. This is how I store the lids in my drawer but these lids also easily snap to the bottom of the containers so you can keep each pair together if you prefer.
And this is a neat feature too – because the lids snap to the bottom of the containers you can even stack and snap full containers together. This makes it really handy when storing your leftovers (or whatever you’re using the containers for) in the fridge. It also makes it easy to just grab them one handed when you need them and a breeze to transport if you are taking goodies somewhere else.
The Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids storage system comes in a great selection of sizes, perfect for all your storage needs. And, as you expect from Rubbermaid, they are freezer, microwave and dishwasher safe and contain no BPAs. Perfect for my little one’s left over “slimy joes” as she calls them.
So, it’s almost a new year, the perfect time to give your container drawer a much needed makeover. Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids can definitely help you to get that drawer organized and make it easy to find what you’re looking for without the frustration. There a few different kits available or you can also pick up individual containers (with lids) to add to what you already have. Here’s to an organized new year!
