There is something so satisfying about getting organized and starting fresh in the new year. All January I have been sharing some of the ways I have streamlined routines and processes in my home. Today I am sharing how I got a lot more organized in the kitchen!
I have been compensated for this post by QVC. Thanks for supporting the brands I love.
I don’t know what this says about the state of my life, but one of the highlights of my January was getting rid of all the old and random plastic food containers we had amassed and replacing them with all new Lock & Lock storage sets from QVC. Of course, it made my type A husband so happy, but I was surprised how much my children loved getting in on the idea of a more organized kitchen.
Lock & Lock containers are awesome for so many reasons. First, they truly snap lock so spills and leaks are nearly impossible. Second, they stack inside each other for easy storage. “Nestable” is the word they use. Not only is it visually appealing, but this system makes it so much less likely to loose lids. And, third, all Lock & Lock containers are BFA-free and dishwasher, microwavable, and freezer safe. Yay!
I was gifted:
- The 20-piece Multishape Nestable Set (probably the best value and would make an amazing gift!)
- The 2 piece Carry-Handle 9 x 13 Set (perfect to transport meals to new moms and treats to the class!)
- The 12-Piece Twist Color Lid Storage Set (great for soups, dips, dressings, berries, etc.)
- The 3-piece Vented Glass Containers (great for the baking and storage)
I shared in a recent Motherhood post how on Sundays I order groceries online for the week. (I “meal plan” a few months at a time so ordering is quick and easy!) Once the groceries arrive my husband and I wash all the produce and chop up the fresh veggies.
Having Lock and Lock containers in the fridge full of washed and sliced carrots, celery, broccoli, cucumber and berries makes it much easier for my children to grab healthy snacks during the week. I always have hummus and dressings on the ready so they can make their own snacks. It is such a timesaver not just for snacking but for making lunches as well! Now that I have plenty of Lock & Lock containers I am going to try to do more meal-prep on Sunday. Like chopping onions and even cooking bacon.
One more awesome little product I was gifted that you will love passing along to friends are these Kuhn silicone food ties. (Watch the video clip on QVC.) I was a tad skeptical about the hype, but they are legit. You can close up bread, cereal, chip bags, just about anything with these ties. And they are so easy to use – even young children can do them. I need to remember these for my next Favorite Things post!
