The messy family reforms: Containers!
I have a container problem.
My space isn't big enough to store all my plastic food containers. The cupboard ends up a jumbled mess of mismatched containers and lids. It's a huge hassle for me. It wastes my time and stresses me out.
So I pulled everything out of the cupboard and put it in this bin. As I use a container and lid, I attach them before putting them away. It's an inefficient way to store, but it's the only way I can keep them together.
At some point I'll get to the containers with no lids, and lids with no containers, and I will throw them out. I used to keep them in yet another cupboard, awaiting the day the missing part would catch up. But it is futile. As futile as packing a duffle bag of unmatched socks into a moving van in Oregon in the hope that the socks were somehow waiting for me in Pennsylvania, like family members gone on ahead.
