Welcome to my nightmare.
This is 1 of 2 drawers in my kitchen that holds plastic containers and lids. Assorted shapes and sizes, many missing lids and many lids missing containers.
Being a Paleo family means that we use a LOT of containers. If you are familiar, Paleo is a lifestyle that involves only eating products that essentially came from nature. Think of “what the caveman ate”, although obviously today we have a lot more options.
This means that when I make dinner, I have to have enough leftovers for lunch the next day for both my husband and I. Plus, there is a lot more to save. I make my own stock, homemade mayo and I recently even started saving bacon grease to use later.
When I was sent a box of Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids, I was excited to give them a try. The pack I received contained 12 containers in 6 sizes which is a great variety. From the largest size to hold soups and sauces all the way to the small sizes perfect for berries, nuts or even some homemade dressing.
The best feature of these are in the title. Easy Find Lids.
The lids stack and snap to the bottom of the container, making storage a breeze and always ensuring each container has its matching lid available.
We put these to the test, having not only my husband take them to work but we’ve also put them in the kids lunch. They stay tightly sealed to prevent leaks but are still easy enough that my 6 year old can open them on her own! Perfect containers for litterless lunch. Did I mention they survived my dishwasher, microwave and freezer – no warping!
I’m happiest to have reclaimed extra space in my kitchen! I’ve gone from two messy, frustrating drawers to one nicely organized drawer (with room for more items even).
