No matter how big your kitchen is, you definitely wanted to store another product, but you faced a lack of space. Before moving on to the purchase of storage boxes, it would be good to remove all the products from the cupboards, check their validity, then throw away what you no longer use. Another tip is to organize your food according to the frequency of use. Put the daily ones on the bottom shelf, and the occasional ones on the top.

For pasta, rice, flour, coffee, or brown sugar, a good option is to store them in jars with airtight colorless lids before putting them in cabinets. They will help you quickly spot the ingredients you need for various recipes. In addition, you can stick adhesive labels, on which you can write the product’s opening date, name, and validity.

For salt, pepper, cinnamon, etc. opt for condiment containers. You can choose from the models for the wardrobe or you can buy them as a set, with screws, or on the kitchen counter.
