Easy Find Lids Food Storage System

Searching for lids can be a stressful chore when you’re trying to pack a lunch in the morning or get leftovers into the fridge before starting homework or housework. Rubbermaid’s Easy Find Lid food storage series is the perfect solution. The lids stack together, or snap onto container bases, so you’ll never lose one. Plus each lid matches multiple container base sizes. The containers also nest together to save space in your cupboard.

Tips for Tiny Kitchens
You can pack a lot of utility and style into a small kitchen. The key is being smart about what you buy and how you store it. Here are some tips for living large in a miniature space.

You can pack a lot of utility and style into a small kitchen.  The key is being smart about how you store items & maximize your space.  Here are some tips for living large in a minature space. 

BUY DOUBLE DUTY DISHES
To really save space, buy one set of versatile, quality tableware instead of a set each of everyday dishes and fine china. Plain white, for example, suits both casual and formal meals.  You can dress the table up with colorful napkins or centerpieces.

NEST, NEST, NEST
Outfit your kitchen with items that nest inside one another: mixing bowls, measuring cups, pots and pans. The same goes for food-storage containers. Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids food storage containers have lids that snap to the bottom of containers and the containers nest together to take up minimal space in the cabinet.

MAKE USE OF VERTICAL SPACE
Add an extra level of storage in a cupboard with shelf helpers, so you can stack more without those dreaded “cabinet avalanches.”

AVOID DUPLICATION
Empty bags of flour, cornmeal, pasta and other dry goods into clear airtight canisters. Fewer bags mean less clutter (stackable, square-sided containers take best advantage of every inch of room), and the added space makes it easier to find what you need so you won’t run out to the store and buy something you already have.

TAKE ADVANTAGE OF "DEAD SPACE"
Have a few inches in front of your pantry shelves?   Use a track and bin organizer to keep small items that otherwise would get lost.
