Does it feel like your kitchen is always a mess, or like you can never find what you need? Check out the following tips to keep your food and cooking supplies organized and easy to reach.

1. De-clutter Your Containers

3 Tips for Simple Kitchen Storage
Ziploc® brand products help keep everything neat and organized, but what about keeping Ziploc® brand products neat and organized? To make it easy to find the right lid at the right time, try using a rack to store lids next to your stacked container bottoms. It’s easy to set up in a drawer or on a cabinet shelf, and can make huge difference in your kitchen organization.

2. DIY Magnetic Spice Storage

3 Tips for Simple Kitchen Storage
It always seems to happen right when you’re in the middle of a dish; the recipe calls for a spice, but between the small bags and tiny bottles you can’t find it. Then your food burns while you search high and low.
3 Tips for Simple Kitchen Storage
Instead, keep your spices neat and on-hand with this simple trick. To start, adhere heavy duty magnets to the bottom of several Ziploc® brand Extra Small Square containers. Fill each container with a different spice, seal it shut, and label the lid. Larger spices can go in a Ziploc® brand snack bag. Each container can be stored on a fridge door or a magnetic strip in the pantry.

3. Put a Lid on Muffin Liners

3 Tips for Simple Kitchen Storage
Leftover muffin liners always seem to get lost or crushed in the cupboard. Instead of storing them all on a pantry shelf, stack each group of liners together then slide the whole stack into a Ziploc® Twist ‘n Loc® container. You can easily see the available patterns through the side, and the next time you’re making muffins you can reach for one container instead of picking through crushed liners.
