Cupboard Makeover (under?) with Rubbermaid!

Lids everywhere, bottoms missing, everything a total mess — that was my plastics cupboard before Rubbermaid gave me a much needed intervention!

My husband was starting to drop hints about how we needed to buy more lunch containers … because we could never find the right lid to go with the container we wanted to use!  With four lunches being packed everyday and dinner leftovers to keep fresh, we are constantly using containers!   The time we spent searching for matching lids and containers was ridiculous.


The people at Rubbermaid were kind enough to help me with that problem.  I received a box of Rubbermaid Easy Find Lids Containers, and started reorganizing.  With a set of 24 bottoms and lids, I was able to replace all of our mismatched containers with our new Rubbermaid containers!  The containers are in a variety of sizes, all the way from a 1/2 cup size up to 7 cups — all of the sizes you would normally use.

The Easy Find Lids Containers are amazing – not only do they nest nicely, but the lids nest together and stay together!  And the stack of lids clips nicely to the bottom of the stack of containers.

So all of my containers now stack perfectly in my cupboard!  And while you might think that this tower is going to topple, because of the interlocking lids and containers, it’s actually really sturdy.  And look at how much space I have left!

And those containers stack just as nicely in the fridge when they’re full of leftovers.

    I have a set of these, too, and I love them! They make life a lot easier.

    We could really use a makeover like this.. things just are always cluttered somewhere in the kitchen.

    It’s always a great thing to get stuff in order!! I love it!

    The way they stack is going to make such a huge difference. I’m constantly knocking things out of my cupboard searching for lids!

    Geez, I know how you feel! We keep all of ours above the sink so when I’m searching things are constantly falling on my head and I’m ducking and it’s not good. I need to get some of these.

    I was just thinking it’s time to do a cupboard overhaul. Great minds think alike. 🙂

    I love the snapping lids! They still seem to get misplaced sometimes though haha, but I do love them. I just have to stay on top of it.

    Oh dear, there was an info-mercial on television that showed messy food storages in the cabinet. And my husband said, that’s exactly how our cabinet looks like-a total exact picture. We badly need a make over in our cabinets and organizing those food storages. 🙂 Neat idea.

    Looks great! I love my Rubbermaid EFLs! The containers are such nice sizes too!!

    It seems like it’s always so hard to keep the tupperwares organized. You did a great job!

    Nice clean up! I love storage containers that all work together!

  12. The Pinterested Parent

    Your before sure looks a lot like my right now. I need a cabinet overhaul. I have a bunch of mismatched sets. This would be a good idea for me.

    Man, this makes me want to clean out our cabinets!

  14. Debi

    My cabinets need a makeover. They are an absolute mess

  15. Everything Home Life

    These sets are great! They’re inexpensive and they have so many uses! I just wish that my hubby would bring them home from work instead of leaving them there and then he just throws them away O_O MEN! lol

    OMgoodness…my sweetie was just saying to me how every time I open the cabinet where I store all the Tupperware that something is always falling out of it. I need stackable solutions, especially for the lids – they are always flying somewhere.

  17. Martine-MeUnfinished

    I have those and they are great! Not sure I would be able to keep my sanity without them sometimes. The different sizes make this bundle an amazing buy. Love it!!!

    Wow! These are great to organize your left-overs aside from the fact, that these are space savers.

    Storage containers can make a huge impact on de-cluttering our space. I like your selection and tips. 🙂
