How to get organised using kitchen storage containers

Organise your cupboards using beautifully labeled kitchen storage containers.

I’ve saved so many pictures to my pinterest board of beautifully organised kitchen cupboards and labelled jars and bottles. I love the pictures where all the jars are the same style and all the labels are co-ordinated.

I thought it’s about time I have a go myself, and why not use this period of ‘down time’ at home to do so.

Which kitchen storage containers to use

After browsing the web, I actually found it quite hard to find the ones I wanted. But I settled for a pack of six from Amazon, which I’m glad I did as they’re great.

This pack comes with three sized containers, two of each size. Each one has an air-tight seal which keeps everything fresh, and are slightly square shaped. This means they won’t waste too much precious space on the shelf which I was worried round jars would do.

I bought 12 kitchen storage containers in total, so I went through the cupboards to see what 12 ingredients I could transfer.

Having a mixture of sized jars was definitely useful as some foods didn’t require such a large container.

Before filling them up though, I made a note of what would go in each one to be sure I had enough jars. Now the fun part – filling them up!

Labelling the containers

The great thing about this pack of kitchen storage containers, was that it included chalk label stickers and a chalk marker pen. So I wrote out all the names I needed and added a dotted border.

I left the chalk labels to dry for about 15 minutes before sticking them on, as they looked like they would smudge if I touched them.

Labelling the Kitchen storage containers

When sticking the labels onto the storage containers, I stood them all next to each other so that the stickers were all the same height.

And there they are! These jars now stand proudly on the shelf. I now have slightly more organised cupboards with labelled kitchen storage containers. I’m now contemplating buying more containers for all the other things in my cupboards!
