A clever Kmart shopper has opted to use a wine rack to organise her food storage containers.
Mum Nicole, from New South Wales, was praised by others online for her ‘genius’ idea after sharing images to a popular Facebook group.
‘Thought I would share my idea with you all (I am not a wine drinker) so used these storage containers to fill the wine rack in my kitchen island with all pantry food just need to label them,’ she wrote in the caption.
‘Really helps with things going back in the right spot.’
The photos show the 30 1.9L flip lock food containers fit perfectly into each compartment of the wine rack in Nicole’s kitchen.

‘Thought I would share my idea with you all (I am not a wine drinker) so used these storage containers to fill the wine rack in my kitchen island with all pantry food just need to label them,’ she wrote in the caption. The containers were used to store dry food, such as rice and pasta
Nicole used the handy $6.50 containers to store her dry food, such as pasta, nice, nuts and instant coffee.
In the comments she added how the containers keep the food fresh for at least five weeks.
Others part of the online community dubbed the idea as ‘genius’ and ‘brilliant’.
‘I am going to do this with my built-in wine rack too!’ one woman wrote, another added: ‘Aren’t you clever!’
A third woman wrote: ‘Could you turn them around? That way you can see what’s in them too and less chance of accidentally opening one when you pull them out.’
Nicole listened to the tip and turned each one around, which not only looked better but made it easier to see the contents of the containers.

Earlier this year another customer showed off her impressive fridge organisation using similar budget containers from Kmart.
Milk, cheese, and sauces were aligned neatly on the fridge door, while all other items were placed on the shelves.
‘Loving the new clear containers from Kmart! My fridge looks amazing,’ the mum wrote online.
All containers and products from Kmart cost less than $10 and have hundreds of positive reviews online.
