I am going to admit now that I have a love/hate relationship with organization. I love to be organized but hate getting it done. And when it does get done, it doesn’t stay organized.
When I moved earlier this year many things just got put away temporarily so that I could clear the boxes out of my kitchen. The temporary ‘organization’ turned permanent when I never made the effort to go back and organize. I’ve been battling with unorganized cabinets for months, moving everything in circles when I need to get 1 thing out of any of my cabinets. The biggest problem is that I have deep cabinets so I often forget what I even have inside of them.
I was really excited with OXO approached me to participate in their #POPtober Challenge along with The Container Store. When I received the box filled with POP Containers and POP Cereal Dispensers I was eager to dig into an organization project. See below for how ugly my cabinets were looking. How could I even find anything in them?! (No, seriously.)
One of my favorite things about the POP Containers is that the lids are flat and perfect for stacking. The button on the top of the containers presses in to secure and create an airtight closure on the container, ensuring that there won’t be any spills. The tops and bottoms of the containers fit together snug like puzzle pieces. I also enjoyed the variety of square and rectangle shapes and sizes that were offered in the containers. They allowed me to fill larger containers with things like flour and sugar and smaller containers with leftover chocolate chips and bread crumbs. Look below for how much better my cabinets look!
