Packaging Station

5. Packaging Station

If your kitchen has enough room, you might also create a Packaging Station where you can easily package leftovers or pre-prepared recipe ingredients. You might choose to buy sets of special plastic or glass food storage bin sets for your leftovers, some have color-coordinated lids and even places to date the food. Some foods are more easily stored in plastic bags, and leftovers that will be tomorrow’s lunch can simply be kept on a plate and covered with foil or plastic wrap.

In any event, the best place for your packaging supplies is somewhere near the sink and refrigerator. A cupboard with your storage containers neatly stacked and a dedicated drawer or a bin mounted inside the door for your plastic bags and plastic and aluminum foil wraps is ideal.

Quickly and properly packaging foods ensures that they don’t spoil and that can save a lot of the ever-increasing food budget. And if you can quickly and easily get the leftovers out of your casserole dishes and into the refrigerator or freezer and the dishes into the sink to soak quickly you will find cleanup much faster and more efficient.
