How can I store food items in small storage containers?
From time to time we need to store perishable food items in small food containers and it has been noticed that these containers are not always best suited for our needs. So we need to don our thinking caps and think what to do to sidestep these small issues and get the containers according to one’s wishes.
What we need?
First of all, we need to check what we want to store and accordingly look for storage containers to put them in. We have different shapes of containers available in the market to store food items in varying sizes and one can choose from them as one needs. Also if we have old cardboard lying at our house we can cover it with newspaper and use it as a customized storage solution. Also if you know how to carve wood and have old wooden pieces lying at your house you can always carve out small boxes out of them to store dry food which will go bad if left in the room and is definitely a environmentally sound option. It not only recycles the old cardboard and papers lying around but also unused wood and we don’t need any more plastic containers to keep food items in. Also such items don’t give out the foul smell one gets from plastic containers due to long unused and can be easily customized keeping with one’s fashion Statement.
What to do then?
The onus is on your judgement and how do you want to implement new ideas for storing kitchen items and to do away with the plastic ones if you aren’t happy with them. Also economically you don’t have to spend much as raw materials are already present with you and the only thing needed is a little push from you to take up the tools and craft them into your storage boxes which you want. Doing it with your own hands gives the satisfaction one cannot get from simply buying the plastic jars and sitting idle without being able to customize them.
