A Smart Spin for the Container-Challenged

Written by N Powell

I consider myself a very organized person. Inrepparttar cabinets above my kitchen countertops, Iíve organized my dishes by size and have all my bowls on one long shelf above my meal plates. My coffee mugs and glasses are organized by size and shape in another cabinet, while my pots and pans sit in a storage facility by my oven. My silverware is organized by utensil neatly in a drawer. My food pantries are separated into breakfast foods, pastas, canned foods, and sauces. My failure lies in making sense of my food storage containers.

I am living in Tupperware hell. After pulling my plastic food containers out ofrepparttar 135136 dishwasher, I place them in a 2-shelf cabinet next to my kitchen sink. There my beloved plastic handy-dandy food containers sit, littered amongrepparttar 135137 newly unused bread machine and old toaster oven. When I need to store leftovers, I dig throughrepparttar 135138 clutter it seems that I canít locaterepparttar 135139 right lid forrepparttar 135140 right container when I need it!

I woke up one day in an organizing mood. I decided to start withrepparttar 135141 cabinet next torepparttar 135142 kitchen sink.

This way, I weeded outrepparttar 135147 useless containers and was stuck with onlyrepparttar 135148 good and complete ones. This lasted for about two weeks.

Next, I tried nesting smaller food containers in progressively bigger containers likerepparttar 135149 Russian nested dolls, withrepparttar 135150 lids placed conveniently onrepparttar 135151 top shelf,repparttar 135152 various rounds and squares onrepparttar 135153 bottom shelf ofrepparttar 135154 cabinet. This was very inconvenient, as I would need to dig thoughrepparttar 135155 nested containers and flip through allrepparttar 135156 lids to find a particular container. Thus, it became a hassle to retrieve what I wanted.

One evening, in between flipping to HGTV and Food Network, an infomercial advertised one particular item that caught my eye. The Smart-Spin Food Storage System appeared to be that miracle cure to my kitchen organizing woes. The design principles behindrepparttar 135157 product appeared so simple that it initially
