Small kitchen organization can feel impossible. Here's an EASY way to simplify, unclutter, and add massive amounts of space to your cabinets!
Whether you're struggling with small kitchen organization or working on simplifying, glass food storage containers are perfect for making space.
Here are three reasons why multi-purpose glass is great for a small kitchen organization and simple living!
01. Stackable glass food storage containers create space
You can gain massive amounts of space in your kitchen cabinets through purposeful uncluttering, nesting, and stacking when you consolidate and switch to multi-purpose glass containers.
As you begin to make intentional multi-purpose kitchen choices, the amount of space in your cabinets will be astounding. Because glass storage containers can serve multiple purposes, you can comfortably donate old casserole dishes, metal mixing bowls, and plastic food storage containers. Nesting glass storage bowls, containers, and baking dishes will make your cabinets feel spacious.
Glass storage containers that have plastic lids with groves also make it easy to safely stack leftovers (and save space) in the fridge too!
02. Multi-purpose glass containers, bowls, and baking dishes save space (and time!)
This multi-purpose 2-quart measuring cup is the perfect mixing bowl (and glass storage container) for pancake batter! Multi-purpose items allow you to remove single-purpose clutter for small kitchen organization and MORE SPACE.
Be sure to intentionally purchase glass containers that are oven, freezer, microwave, and dishwasher friendly. This allows you to be able to prep, cook, freeze, store, and warm food all with one container.
Bake and serve all dinner side dishes and casseroles directly in glass storage containers. If there are leftovers you don't have to transfer the food to a plastic container and wash the original dish. Bake, serve, and store all in one. Think of the time you'll save!
03. Consistenty helps prevent kitchen chaos
Glass storage containers are more expensive, so you're also more likely to keep things minimal. Less is more when it comes to finding lids quickly! Again, it means more space in your cabinets too!
Choose a single brand of glass food storage container and stick with it! Consistency ensures proper nesting and makes it easy to find the proper lid quickly.
Be cautious of generic brands in an attempt to be frugal. Over time, the lids can become brittle and crack. Be sure to read product reviews before making your choice! Consider glass storage containers a one-time investment in your organized, tidy, peaceful minimalist kitchen.
^ This is a mistake I personally made and regretted. We've had Pyrex containers for years now and the lids are still pliable. We also love that if lids get lost, you can buy individual replacements.
Wide-mouth mason jars are one of the best storage containers for small kitchen organization
Wide mouth mason jars are cost-efficient glass storage containers. You can buy them online but check your local stores first! I purchased a 16-pack for $12 at our local hardware store. When you play with this creative storage container, you can also save money with reduced food waste, pre-made lunches, and on-the-go drinks!
Save space in your cabinets, ditch traditional drinking glasses, and replace them with wide-mouth mason jars. Plus, if you have kids who never seem to finish their milk, you can pop a lid on it and put it back in the fridge without worrying about it being knocked over!
They're perfect for pre-made lunches and single-serving leftovers. If your family isn't keen on eating leftovers for DINNER again, individual LUNCH serving size storage is key for stopping food waste.
Wide-mouth mason jars are a frugal way to get started with glass storage containers if you want to ease your way into the shift!
Getting Started With Glass Containers
There are a lot of expensive options available. Glass storage containers are worth investing in; however, it is always important to be intentional with your finances. Remember, consistency is key and you should start as you mean to go on!
