Does the state of your kitchen make you glad or mad? Don't let simple kitchen problems grow into full-blown household crises. Turn kitchen boohoos into yahoos with this storage tips...

Lonely leftovers. Don't let your family endure the same leftover dishes at breakfast, lunch and dinner. Get creative and transform last night's entrees into tasty, new dishes. But first, you have to preserve the flavor of leftovers by storing foods like roasted chicken or smoked salmon an aluminum foil or extra-stretch cling wrap. Then re-use the entrée by preparing a holiday club sandwich or using the leftover as empanada filing. From grilled foods to steamed cuisine, tired meals become appetizing re-purposed entrees.

Smells fishy. Do you notice a weird odor coming out of your refrigerator? There's cause for alarm when the watermelon tastes fishy and your drinking water smells like yesterday's dinner. What you have to do: store raw meats and seafood in separate zipper freezer bags, and other foodstuffs like fruits and vegetables in zipper storage bags that keep food fresh longer. These bags seal tightly to protect food from bacteria and contamination, and prevent food odors from mixing in the refrigerator. Some zipper freezer bags even have a write-on label so you can easily tell what's inside the bag.

Storage trouble. Having trouble keeping food fresh? Rethink your storage strategy. Refrigerate or freeze perishables, prepared foods and leftovers within two hours or sooner using tight-sealing, sturdy containers. Divide large amounts of leftovers into small, shallow containers for quick cooling in the refrigerator.

Messy cleanups. Tired of removing debris from pans and scrubbing grease off your bakeware? Next time, use bake paper to line your pan instead of brushing oil or butter on it. Bake paper ensures no-stick cakes and pastries so you never have to ever deal with burnt or sticky baking pans again. And it's cost-effective because you can reuse the sheet for another baking project.

Trash crash. Grossed out by garbage? Take waste management seriously so you don't invite ants and flies into your living space. Place the day's rubbish in a mess-free kitchen garbage bag. There won't be any sturdier and is designed to have more space for trash.
