This week and the Pinterest Challenge got away from me a little bit. Little guy was not sleeping that great so we all didn’t sleep that great, so motivation was a little hard to locate and I was also working on another project. But I did manage to fit a project in this morning.
I am sure a lot of us had a drawer or cabinet with Tupperware (or similar) bowls that are thrown together with the lids in a big ol’ mess. Here is mine:
Ok, so it isn’t that bad. But I know I must have some extra lids and some things I have never used. Also the lids even though they look sort of straight, are all over the place. You can’t tell but I have lids in the back that are underneath some of the containers.
Anyway, I have wanted to come up with some sort of storage system for the lids so that when I pull one out, 3 more don’t fall on the floor. I saw this on Pinterest. Refer to number 29 for the idea of taking a CD holder to use for the lids. Now I did not have the type of CD holder that they show in the picture. But I had a similar CD holder that I wasn’t using for CDs. I actually had some miscellaneous items in it that really wasn’t working. So I emptied the drawer and matched up the lids I had with the bowels/containers I used and here is a picture of what was leftover. The small containers I have NEVER used for any food items, so I may try to re-purpose them for the project I have been working on this week (will discuss later). And I had all these extra lids. Who knew?
So I added my CD holder and lined up the containers so that they fit together and added the lids and voila!
Two of the lids did not fit well, so I put the large one under the large container and the other one is right outside the lid container. Not a huge difference visually, but organizationally a big change.
Thanks for reading!
