Essentials of an Organized Kitchen – Storage Boxes

Kitchen is one place in our home which is planned and designed with utmost care. Right lux levels (recommended lighting levels), windows, clear ventilation, continuous water supply, and kitchen storage.

An organized kitchen is everyone’s favorite, we spend quite a lot of time in the kitchen so why not plan it for our delight. Colorful walls, bright areas, illumination for the chef’s eye and perfect storage. Everyone loves a clean and shiny kitchen, and honestly, I lose my appetite when the cooking area is messy. Also, no one would like to search for condiments, spices, and other required stuff in between cooking. Hence, an organized kitchen is a must especially when we have very little time to whip up breakfast or supper.

We store many items in the kitchens, from perishable to non-perishable items. Dry grains, spices, utensils, cookware, glassware, and storage boxes. No matter how small or big, everyone wants a well-organized kitchen. The idea is to keep the kitchen clean, pocket and environment-friendly, and organized.

1. Bulk Storage Boxes

Are you a monthly shopper like me or a bi-weekly one? Monthly groceries require nice storage space and boxes, to avoid any spoilage. The market is swelling with many bulk storage options, but when it comes to storing food and grains I get really careful. The containers should be durable, environment-friendly, healthy plastic (food-grade) and reusable for a long time.

Also, if you are living in a humid city like Mumbai, the pantry storage especially becomes tricky. I have found a solution to my problem in Tupperware Bulk Storage Flour Box-set. These boxes are designed to create right moisture intact, keeping grains and food items durable to a longer time.

2. Declutter your kitchen, reuse and recycle

Who doesn’t like the spik-and-span kitchen? Decluttering gives you peace of mind, be it with the thoughts or kitchen. Before getting yourself newer storage boxes or kitchen essentials, declutter and make space. Reuse old things and recycle by making use of unwanted stuff.

3. Use storage box with a spout or a measuring spoon

Storage boxes with a spout or measuring spoon are much easier to use. More than ease it’s about caring for food, use only the amount of food which is required. The exact measurement, which will leave negligible chances of food damage. Tupperware flour and rice sets come with a measuring spoon, that allows customers to know the exact measurement required for every use. Also, it keeps the rice and flour intact with airtight lid away for any humidity or moisturizer.

4. Pick up easy to use and see through containers

See-through storage boxes not only look good but also make it easier for us to remember what’s left unattended. Imagine storing last night’s leftover rice or curry in fridge boxes and absolutely forgetting about it the next day. See-through boxes make sure out of sight isn’t out of mind. Cool and fresh storage boxes from Tupperware keep food fresh and intact for a longer time.

5. Label the shelf life in the fridge, containers, and pantry

Keeping note of expiry dates is crucial even after you purchased the products and stored in kitchen. Labeling is the best way to keep note of what’s going out of date when. You get beautiful labels in the market, or can make easy DIY kitchen labels. I prefer using a marker to keep dates, and what’s inside the container. It’s easy to use and comes very handy to find the right condiment at the right time.

6. Even sized Storage containers are a must have

This totally depends upon the space in your kitchen, I prefer to keep even sized boxes in the kitchen and even in my fridge. Firstly it looks much more organized and secondly gives better space for other items.

7. Stack utensils and cookware separate and logically

I always advocate for the right things at the right place. Keep cookware, glassware, storage boxes, and kitchen tools separately. The more frequently used items must be placed close for easy access, expensive serving dishes or dinner sets must be stored well in kitchen cabinets. Kitchen accessories like knives, spatulas, spoons, etc can be stored at the same place or holder but in properly segregated sections.
