  • I would store them in one of the containers.

    I just stack them in a small basket.

    You can put them all inside one tupperware

      They're a bit large for any Tuppeware I can find. Thank you, though.

    Might you have room somewhere in the kitchen to hang one of these clip hangers? (They are generally sold for drying small laundry items, but I have seen them used for hanging other small things, - craft tools, papers, etc.)

    I bought a clear storage container at the dollar store they come in tons of sizes and have mine lined up in there so I can pull out what I want and see what is in there

      Thank you. Soon as I can get out I'll look for something like that. Thanks for your help.

    Thank you all. I should have been more specific. These range in diameter from 4 to 14 inches and are the older, less pliant type: they look like flowers and lily pads. I now have them stacked, along with bowl cozies, in a tray on top of microwave. Very small kitchen with no extra drawers or cabinet space. The tray works ok, just always looks messy and I use these a lot. Thank you all for any ideas.

      Oh, I was thinking that if they are silicone, they would be able to roll up in to themselves, and therefore could be hung up.


      If you posted a picture of your lids in the tray you are using now, we could then see exactly what you are working with.

    Could you try standing them up or would hey flop over? You could try something like you use for envelopes (that has little dividers) and store them upright.

    Here's the way I keep them now, but somehow doesn't seem so messy in this pic. Thank you for your help, again.

      Thanks for the picture.

      I can see now what you mean by the lids being floppy but not as pliable as other types due to the 'seams' for the petals. I can also see that these lids will not stand upright in baskets, etc. as others have suggested because they do not have the stiffer edges.


      I don't think that they look messy in this picture.

      The colors are bright and cheerful.

    Hello. Depending upon the size sometimes you can find organizational bins or folder holders and stationery department that are helpful for kitchen storage.

      Hadn't thought of that. Will search online for something that might work for us. Thank you!

      Love your method, just have no cabinet space for it. Thank you for your help.

    Hi Seacrow,

    Seems to me you could store them in a Bag in a Box or a rack etc. Good luck!

    I have them and I keep them in the closet in a decorative enamelware pot with a lid.

    I have mine in a large basket, like a filing system.
