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.
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!
Who are we?
I’m Becky, a 30 something mama of two, from West London and I run this creative little business together with my mum Wendy.
When covid landed on our doorstep in 2020, one thing we did to help encourage sales of our craft kits, was create the Shop Small Christmas Gift Catalogue. We posted it out to thousands of homes, advertising gift ideas, all sold from small businesses, including my own, encouraging people to shop small at Christmas.
I loved helping other companies, I wondered about converting our catalogue into an in-person event.
So in summer 2022, we hosted out first ever pop-up market in Westfield shopping centre, encouraging the nation to shop from small businesses. I absolutely loved meeting so many inspiring business owners and helping them increase exposure and sales, it’s made me want to organise more events. It’s naturally turned into a business itself, hosting in person shopping events, helping diversify the high street with products from small businesses.
As a product selling business owner myself selling a range of craft kits, I know full well how hard it can be to generate a regular income and to keep the business going especially with big brands dominating the high street
From my own experience I’ve found if you have a good product, selling in person can be such a beneficial way to get your stock off the shelves and into the hands of your ideal customer. I’m passionate about helping small businesses thrive and the I Do Handmade Pop-Ups will hopefully do exactly that.
