Hi, everyone. so in this tutorial, i’m going to share with you guys how to organize all of your plastic storage containers that you have inside of your kitchen cabinets. So maybe you have like a whole cabinet that’s just like bursting with like lids and bottoms and stuff and it’s just very hard to contain. I’m going to show you how I organized mine to make it really easy to access, to know what you have, and to make putting leftovers away less frustrating. So let me grab the camera and show you guys exactly what I’ve.
Done. OK. So this is the cabinet where I keep all of my plastic food containers. Now, it has lids to my pots also because my pots are in this cabinet over here which I’m going to save for another tutorial. But this is really what I want to show you guys. I want to show you this and then I want to show you up here. So this is a pullout organizer that’s made for cabinets. Now, it’s not necessarily made.
To hold tupperware and storage containers but i just like to use it for this purpose because I thought it would work perfectly. So what I’ve done here is besides install this organizer, I have sorted all of my plastic food storage containers by size and then I put all the bottoms together and all the tops together. So back here, I have all of my larger tops in the very back section then there is a divider here kind of dividing them up. So large tops and then I have my mediumsize.
Tops here and then my smaller tops here so when i’m coming to grab a container i can say, Oh, do I need a small, medium, or large? And then go to that exact location. And I did the same thing with the bottoms here. I have all the mediums at the very bottom of the front section and then I have the smaller ones kind of nested on top of each other like this. And then I have all of the large containers because it didn’t really fit nicely down here at the very top of the cabinet.
Now, i have another one, i think i have like two more of that are actually in the fridge right now being used. So those go there. So I just like how they’re very easy to access. Yeah, they’re just easy to access. And when you store the bottoms separate from the tops, it saves a lot of space. And yeah, it just saves a lot of space and it makes everything easy to access. Now, do you have to use the same product that I used to get the same look inside of your.
Cabinet for organizing your storage containers? no, absolutely not. i just really like this one. When I saw it in the store, I just knew this was going to work so beautifully because I saw the dividers, I saw that they were adjustable and flexible and I knew that was exactly what I was looking for in order to contain all my lids by size and separate them from the bottoms. So that’s why I got it. Now, if you want to know more information about the product, you can visit my website,.
Alejandra.tv. there are more details there. but if you don’t want to get the product and you want to get the same look inside of your cabinet, what you can do is you can just use containers. You could even use like storage containers just like this to contain all your lids. Like what I would do is I would just use one of these bigger containers and I would put all my lids to kind of stack the same way inside of the bigger one. I would probably.
Do all my large lids together and then my mediums and smalls in a separate container. And then I would probably nest like the mediumsize containers and the small containers. Nest these ones inside of another large container or if you don’t want to use these containers, you could just get another container and nest them inside of those. So there are other ways to organize your Tupperware containers without having to go out and get another product. I just like this one and I knew it was going to meet the needs of what.
Living OffGrid in a SelfBuilt 20ft Shipping Container Mobile Home
Twoandahalf years ago i decided to move out of the city and build myself a shipping container cabin. I drew it up on the computer first and then once I saw this site it just came together really quickly. The cabin is made of three standard 20foot shipping containers. I’ve done some modifications to them so you can walk through all three containers. This is my washroom. I had a roughed in toilet that I never used. I used the outhouse instead.
This was my bedroom. living room, kitchen, and then i guess. second living room. this is where i primarily spent all my time. Either in front of the fire during winter or most likely outside enjoying the sun in the summertime. All of these doors are standard issue shipping container doors. They’re actually sealed when they’re locked and I initially designed the cabin around containers on the premise that once the doors are sealed and locked you can walk away for several.
Weeks at a time. if you go traveling you can close up your house and you don’t have to worry about it. This is my utility room basically it was a a propane fired hot water tank that fed the infloor radiant heat system and also provided hot domestic water. There’s 17.4 million containers in the world and threequarters of them are sitting empty and so they’re readily available and they’re relatively inexpensive and also they provide a great deal of structural.
Properties. the largest challenge was to insulate the cabin I was hoping to stay here for four seasons. I came up with insulating the interior walls with spray foam and then the openings where the steel doors are insulated with bats. I was able to get an Rvalue about R22 for all the walls which makes surviving the winter more.I guess more enjoyable. Water sources were an issue. My neighbors were kind enough to let me fill up my water tote so I.
Would either drive my tractor over and pick up the water or make arrangements and travel into the closest town and fill up my water so I trucked all my water in. For the energy side I designed a two kilowatt solar system. I use the outhouse as my primary washroom. After watching many people before me make tiny houses I I really liked the idea of downsizing and simplifying your life. By moving to a smaller space it forced me to select what mattered in my life. I grew up.
Around offgrid systems.my grandfather built his first hydro site in the 40s to power his house and his business and my father did the same and I wanted to do something similar so I guess it’s been in my family for three generations so it just felt natural. I enjoy simple wellthoughtout things and this incorporates a lot of my interests into just a smaller spot. I feel that being responsible and.
Sustainable goes handinhand with welldesigned systems. my passion is design and having a holistic lifestyle is also passion of mine and they just they marry very well. I just graduated from school so I am starting my own business in the solar renewable energy field trying to, I guess, empower people to to do similar things that I’ve been doing. I lived in the house for twoandahalf years.
Fulltime. the cabin is 355 square feet and most people would consider that small or tiny. To be honest I didn’t spend that much time inside the cabin. It’s where I prepared and ate food, and slept, and then read most evenings but when I was home I’d be outside where I prefer to be, in nature. Living here by myself for twoandahalf years with just me and my dog.
