    It's impossible, especially as it doubles as DD's play drawer! When she gets too old to be interested in it anymore then I'll organise it somehow

    Oh this thread has given me an idea...i have 2 big drawers under my oven. I might make them tupperwear and use the other cupboard for oven pans.

    might see if i can get that done this weekend while DH is installing the basketball ring lol

    I have a plastics cupboard, and it has a separate pull out draw (metal basket thingy) that I keep all the lids in. I love having the lids separate! Also, I have decided to go with one brand, so I can have different sizes, but sometimes the lids are transferrable, and they are easy to stack, even in different sizes. I chose décor brand (with a few sistema things for the kids lunches). I think Ikea sells those metal draws where you can store lids.

    I am the same as a couple of PP's who use all the same brand (Tupperware), so it all stacks nicely. Also a lot of my containers I actually stack with the lids on, so it's quick and easy to put in and out of the cupboard and they stack perfectly.

    I'm a Tupperware consultant so I have it coming out of my ears!
    I separate mine
    I have a large drawer full of kids stuff - plates, cups, spoons, containers etc
    Then a large cupboard with the rest. Bottom shelf is larger stuff I don't use as often. Next shelf is smaller containers I use often for leftovers, kids snacks etc and top shelf is all the extras - measuring cups, Popsicle moulds etc
    It stays fairly tidy as everything has a spot and I just put it back in that spot when it's clean.
    If I lose lids or containers, I put them in a larger box until its counterpart is found.

    However when DS1 was younger he use to play in it so during that time it was a complete shamble, I expect when DS2 is 12-18months it will be the same

    I've got a big plastic storage box (?20 or 30L) with all my containers in that.
    There is no real order to it, just stack it in as best as I can.
    I used be like PP's and open the cupboard door and have it all fall out.
    It drove DH mental so he can up with the big storage box solution

    I stick with a couple of brands only so they all stack nicely. I only have what is necessary, not too much, I hate clutter.

    When I unload the dishwasher in the morning, I give it a quick tidy up as i put things away so it doesn't get messy.

    The first step is to throw away anything that is damaged, or that you do not use, the key to being tidy is to reduce clutter.
