It was time to organize my leftover containers that are kept in a kitchen cupboard on a slide out shelf. I didn't realize how long it had been since the last time I did this until I got to the bottom of the shelf and found things I'm ashamed to tell.

How could this be useful? Really, the only use it had was to barely store my leftover containers; "barely" meaning each time I'd open the door, something would fall out. I had to ask myself, "Why would I need 250 containers?" I'm just joking. It wasn't that much, but it was too much. Here's how I got this cupboard in shape in four easy steps:
