Declutter Challenge for a Monday: Plastic Containers

I decided it was time to clean out my plastic containers. Some of them were old, old, old and not sealing very well. We did some research and settled on a set of Rubbermaid Premier containers. These can be purchased at Target

I love them! We bought a set of 20 and purchased a few extra large pieces separately. These pieces are very sturdy, they resist stains and odors, and seal very well.

No, I'm not being paid to talk about this, I just love these!

I decided to clean out this cabinet and put my new containers here. I love how they nest for easy storage. My old containers didn't nest very well, and would spill all over the place. I'm still working on the two shelves above this.

Do you have a cabinet with containers that needs to be cleaned out? You may simply need to clean out and organize your drawer or cabinet. If you are in the market for new food containers though, I highly recommend these.

The "plastic food container" part of a kitchen always seems to be the worst area. If yours needs help, see what you can do in 15 minutes...ready, set, go!

I hear you on the container cabinet being bad. Mine shares space with my pot lids and a few frying pans/grill pan that don't hang with the rest. I am, however, making a switch over from plastic to glass, especially now that the kids are older.

Those are very nice and YES I do have a cluttery cabinet! My MIL keeps giving me her old Tupperware (also nice, but they DO take up a lot of room.)

Great Job!

That's a great idea to just start fresh with containers that work together. Your shelf looks lovely.

I really need to purchase a set or 2 of these. Cabinets look a lot neater when everything matches and nests perfectly.
