As it says above- how do you keep your plastics cupboard neat clean and sorted?
before I started strugging with this pregnancy I would empty and re-stack it weekly. Which sucked. Any tips?

How do you keep your plastics cupboard clean and tidy? Ours is an exploding disaster

I don't. When I need something I open the door and let everything fall out then grab what I need. Then I shove everything back in and slam the door.
I don't think there's a way to keep it tidy so it stays that way, unless you want to spend a lot of time maintaining it.

Draws. Cupboards for plastic ware suck. Draws are much easier to keep semi under control!

I get really honest about what I actually use and what I don't and chuck out things i don't need, or that don't have lids and lids without containers etc. Also the cupboard they're in is quite deep so I can shove things i don't use often but do use occasionally to the back and keep the mixing bowl and lunch/left over containers at the from.

I have neatly stacked it all many times but as @fearless leader says that requires regular upkeep (particularly when I need the big things off the bottom so have to remove things to get it out and then to put it back). I have pared it down but I think it breeds somehow
So short answer I keep it somewhat neat but never remotely perfect

Same as FL! I used to keep it tidy before kids, I use all Tupperware so a little easier to stack.
However that became the cupboard DS1 was allowed to touch while I was in the kitchen. It worked well in that he never tried any others.
But really, he rarely goes to that cupboard now so I'm using him as an excuse!!
