With a file organizer, a dish dry rack, and a bin you too can get your food storage containers in order!
Guys… this seriously wasn’t staged… How sad is this madness? In my defense the lids were more organized a couple days ago, but things got moved around when I needed a bin in the back, and, well, there you have it… madness! Clearly this project was done out of necessity.
