Donate odd-ball sizes. Only keep sets of similar sized lids and containers. You can put a rack in the drawer to hold all lids together. Stack containers.
I stack my containers and use one for the lids.
Here is a good post https://www.refinedroomsllc.com/need-to-free-up-some-kitchen-storage-space-take-control-of-your-plastic-ware/
The first thing I did was purge mine. Based on my real usage and getting rid of anything that was stained or missing lids/bottoms. Then I designated one cabinet. I made a small investment in nesting plastic ware. That was about half of the space. Then I placed least used items on the top shelf to the most used on the bottom.
Another option is to use some type of sorter for the lids and stack the bowls. A dish drainer or pan vertical organizer can be used for the lids.
Got rid of any carry out containers, then placed any containers with lids together, the containers on top and the lids underneath.Really simple.
Hello. I have donated a portion of mine away and purchased nesting plastic ware. Both bins and lids snap compactly together. It solved storage problem completely

Hi Joyce, I try to stack mine as much as possible (largest to smallest inside of each other) and then I use a large rectangle container to store all of the lids in. It keeps it organized... I just have to take the time to put it back properly after I wash it LOL

Hi Joyce: Are you talking about spoons, forks and knives? If so, you can put them into empty glass jars or pretty vases. If you're talking about the containers, then stack them and put the lids on their edges in a box. Cereal boxes are really good for this, cut them on an angle like they do forholding books, starting at the top and going towards the bottom, but leave the skinny side about 5" tall. Good luck
For longer storage, use rubbermaid or similar containers with snap tight lids. Separate utensils by type, and label each container.
Do you mean Rubbermaid storage containers, for like leftovers? I store them in a fabric bin in a big cabinet under my kitchen counter. That way, they don't tumble all over the place.
