We're renting so my options are very limited about what I can do.  But, I'd still like your ideas.


I cleaned out about half of the cupboards today.  They feel like there better now but I don't know that they'll last.


I have bins to help keep the food together but they don't go all the way to the back so I know I'll lose things soon.


Please help.

Do you have too much food? Once a month or so I force myself to be creative and cook from staple items.


I have one of those mesh things that divide the shelf in two. Doubles my jar space.


I buy a lot of stuff in bulk but switch it to ziplocs or mason jars once home. If it stays in the bulk bags it gets lost.


I also put all the snack foods in a lower drawer or cupboard so the kids can access it themselves.

Can you post pics so I can get an idea of what they look like?  I used to get lost in all the food containers but now I try to hold off on grocery shopping until most of the food is eaten, instead of going weekly out of habit.  Also meal planning helps me to prevent having a bunch of random ingredients hanging around my cabinets cluttering them up.
