I have a major kitchen pet peeve: Containers without lids.
How do you even organize that mess (and that’s just one cabinet)? You can’t keep the lids on the containers, or else you can’t stack the containers, so that wouldn’t work. And when your lids aren’t with your containers…it just leads to the breakdown of society. Well, it feels that way, anyway.
You can’t find the right lid for the container you’re using…and eventually you somehow lose lids (how, I don’t know), which makes a container basically useless (no, I refuse to cover them with aluminum foil — and don’t even get me started on plastic wrap). Personally, I think those lost lids are hanging out somewhere in your house, playing poker with all your lost socks.
Which is why the concept behind Mr. Lid intrigued me.
Perhaps you’ve seen commercials for Mr. Lid containers, which is the only container with an attached lid. They’ve got a lot going for them. A whole lot. Mr. Lid containers are:
- made in America
- great for storing anything from food to office supplies to toys (think Legos!!) to craft supplies…the possibilities are endless!
Mr. Lid containers available in a variety of sizes — one gallon, 96 ounces, 48 ounces with a built-in condiment cup, 32 ounces, 16 ounces, 8 ounces, and a sandwich size.
These containers are fantastic. The lids are attached securely and close tightly on the containers. I love the color, I love the variety of sizes, and I love how tightly the lids fit on the containers.
As you can see, I used one of my Mr. Lid containers to store animal crackers, where they’ll stay fresh and the slim container will save space in my cabinet.
The large Mr. Lid container can be used for so many purposes, but I’ll probably be using it to store dry cat food, like the picture above (which depicts dog food, but you get the idea).
The only thing I’d like to see is a color variety…that way I could color-code things according to lid color. But, other than that, there’s not a darn thing I would want to change about the Mr. Lid containers.
You can purchase these patented containers at Mr. Lid. Go. No, really, go right now. You won’t believe the deal!
I was not compensated for writing this post. I received a sample of Mr. Lid containers to facilitate my review. My opinions are 100% honest and 100% mine.
