Organize objects using various containers

Please take the opportunity to take out the disused objects hidden at the back of your cupboards and give them a second life. Here are some ideas:

- Jars – with lids for products purchased in bulk (nuts, coffee, sweets, pasta, rice, beans, lentils etc.) or without lids to make practical cutlery trays
- Pitchers – for storing various utensils (wooden spoons, spatulas, whisks, pastry brushes)
- Wooden wine boxes – for storing bottles of sauces, vinegar, oil; napkins and tea towels
- Baskets – to group dry food, spice bags or folded cloth napkins
