I am already a bit behind on my decluttering tasks… hopefully I can catch up…
Week #1’s decluttering task took longer than I had hoped (I have finally finished shredding all my papers!), and my before and after pictures weren’t all that exciting. I really would have liked to have something awesome and dramatic for week #2, but my tupperware and lunch containers are not that…
I still hadn’t unpacked the lunch containers from the cardboard box that most of them were packed in when we moved… back in February of last year. We use them quite regularly, and slowly they have been falling behind the cardboard box and disappearing in to the depths of the corner cabinet.
(Side note: I really dislike the cabinets in my kitchen and I hope that we will be able to do a kitchen reno in the not too distant future… probably not for a couple years though…)
Here are my before pictures:
As soon as I had all of the containers out of the cupboard, my big cat decided he wanted to help me with my task.
There wasn’t much decluttering really, just organizing. I got rid of a few items that didn’t belong in that cupboard and had not been used since we moved in. And I’m sure I could have been a bit more severe in my discarding of excess containers, but I mostly just got rid of bottoms without lids, and lids without bottoms, and a couple sets that we really never use. Once the containers were slightly decreased, I used two storage bins that I picked up at Target to organize them. Bottoms in one, lids in the other. We still have a lot of containers, but at least now they are organized and no longer in the box we moved them in.
And then I kicked Big Cat out and everything went back in to the cupboard. The final product:
Not super dramatic, but will definitely make my lunch making process easier.
What do you do for organizing lunch containers?
