Who among us has not muttered a curse or two while trying to sort out a chaotic collection of food storage containers? Pyrex, Tupperware, and other brands are useful for keeping leftovers fresh and meal prep ingredients ready to go. Dealing with the lids in your cabinet, however, is another story. Storage container tops are incredibly frustrating to keep track of—not to mention, organize.

I've seen a lot of products that claim to make sense of our overflowing lid problems, and none are as promising as Swommoly's expandable, six-compartment organizer. Here's how it works: The 10.8-inch wide plastic base can adjust in length from 9.8 inches to just over 17 inches. Once you've locked in your ideal size, you'll insert dividers to compartmentalize your lids. Use the pre-printed labels to note which size lid goes in each slot, or customize your own with the blank stickers included. You don't even need tools to assemble it.

To buy: Swommoly Expandable Food Storage Container Lid Organizer, $16 (originally $30) at

Over 5,000 Amazon shoppers have given the organizer a five-star rating. Home cooks and Tupperware hoarders particularly appreciate the generous size; although the Amazon listing says the Swommoly container can hold 40 lids, one customer who said they have "more than a lot" of container tops fit 53 with no problem.

The typical $30 price point seems like a bargain, but it's currently on sale for just under $16. A 49% discount is not a deal you see very often, especially for a product that's routinely described as durable and worthy of gift-giving.

The before-and-after pictures from happy customers are pretty inspiring; one even described the organizer as "magical," and honestly, judging from this picture, I'd agree. "How wonderful the world would be if everything worked so well," mused another customer, who said the product "revolutionized" their container drawer. I spend a lot of time browsing Amazon, and I've never seen a product with so many customer reviews that explicitly recommend buying it ASAP.

If you're at all on the fence about making the purchase, I'll leave you with this review that sold it for me. One customer, who noted that the Swommoly "brought an end to our lid chaos," reported that it was easy to put together and efficiently holds the lids in place. What more could you ask for… besides a few more food storage containers?
