@Mrstidwell:  Are they all different sizes?

I find I use 2 sizes frequently, so keep those at the front, nestled within the same size with the lids on top.  The ones behind are a bit of a mess and I do sometimes have to search for a lid, but it doesn’t take too long.

Nestling the containers inside each other is pretty much a given. Find a system for storing the lids that works for you.

Get a couple of cheap bins from the dollar store. Store smaller lids in one, larger in the other.

I got rid of all of our junk containers a few months back and bought two boxes of the rubbermaid from costco. It all fits neatly in one drawer, love it. I can’t tell you how many times I organized my mom’s tupperware drawer when I was a teenager, it never lasted. There was just too many different types and pieces that wouldn’t match.

I’d try stacking them and use a basket or a bin to put lids in

This is  a pull out drawer that you can install in any cupboard. Store the containers in the front- lids in the back. The divider comes with the drawer.

vertical file holders work for pot lids and tupperware lids

@Mrstidwell:  We only have about 3-4 sizes but ours are glass so they dont really stack well, so we store all the bottoms together of the same size with a magazine file next to them with the lids, you can also use a mail file if you have a few different sizes in the same cabinet

We don’t have any cabinet space available, so all of our plastic food containers live in one big plastic Rubbermaid bin on the top shelf of our coat closet.  All similar shapes/sizes are stacked together with a stack of their lids on top, and then I just sort of Tetris-ed them into the bin.  It actually works pretty slick.
