Smart Storage Ideas for Organizing Food Containers
Shop for kitchen drawer organizers
Typically these systems are configured with two rollouts: one near the bottom of the cabinet for storing larger containers and one near the top for storing lids and smaller containers.
Again, talk with your kitchen designer or cabinetmaker about which system is the right fit for you and your space.
If you’ve got a rather large collection of food storage containers, then a better and more flexible option is a drawer with adjustable dividers. This allows you to create customized slots for organizing containers and lids, and gives you the freedom to store other vessels, tops, trays and other random pieces that tend to accumulate in a kitchen.

Lightweight plastic food containers and lids get knocked around if stored on a shelf in a regular cabinet, and tend to eventually end up in a jumbled mess at the back of a cabinet. So all the solutions in this article involve drawers or rollouts.
A good kitchen designer will take an inventory of all your utensils, pots, pans, appliances, storage containers and the like, and develop dedicated storage right down to the inch for each item.
