If you’ve read my book you’ll know what I think of containers. Often, we feel that by purchasing containers (boxes, plastic tubs etc) we’ll get on top of our possessions. Wrong! you have to deal with you ‘stuff’ first. Containerization comes later. First, you must declutter, refine, audit and reassess the items in your space.
Having said all that (!) I am so in love with these fruit and vegetable shaped storage containers for the kitchen. They are a fun way to store cut (often smelly) items and they do seem to help stop the contents from spoiling so quickly. Another benefit- thanks to the container reflecting the contents- is that you know exactly what’s in there! No more opening a crusty old bit of al foil and saying “oh, there’s another cut onion going off…..”
Of course, do clear the fridge out on a regular basis! Then containerize what matters 🙂
I confess, I have the entire set and my friend, Liz, squealed with delight when I bought them for her too. We love to cook, so they are a very practical item. Both of us use them daily, so they’ve been a good investment.
You might find them in your local kitchenware shop, (one manufacturer is Hutzler) but you can definitely find them on line – click on the links below and you’ll be taken to the range at http://www.amazon.com.
