Food Storage Containers Guidelines for Small (and Big) Kitchens
Melanie Pinola — Your food storage containers can make a big difference in the amount of kitchen storage space you have available, especially if yours is a small kitchen. These tips can help you optimize your kitchen or pantry real estate.
Tupperware and plastic takeout food containers seem to multiply when we're not looking. To combat that avalanche of containers, the folks at Re-Nest have highlighted the kinds of reusable food storage containers that work best in small spaces. The list includes: three or four snack bags, pocket-sized reusable grocery bags, and glass to-go containers with leak-proof lids.
Major tips here are to skip the bulky canvas grocery bags in favor of the nylon squishable kind, limiting the number of water bottles and mugs on hand at any time, and opting for glass containers that can go from freezer or fridge to oven or microwave.
