Personal chef Jesa Henneberry shares a quick tip with The Kitchn on making the best use of the space in your kitchen: buy only square or rectangular containers and stack them up, since drawers and cabinets are already in that shape.
One of the best ways to organise your kitchen is to use standard-sized storage containers, but that’s not always practical; you’ll need big and small containers, depending on the contents.
Henneberry rightly points out that round containers waste precious space.
Jesa keeps her most important organising elements next to the sink, which include dozens of Tupperware containers in graduating sizes with respective lids stored separately in size-designated Ziploc bags. She’s also emphatic about only using square containers so that they all fit well in one drawer. (Round containers disrupt the stackability and waste precious drawer space.)
Storing lids by size in separate Ziploc bags is also a great tip. Anyone who stacks containers will know how often you spend time looking for the right lid, and this is a good way to keep them organised.
