2. Take out your trusty Sharpie marker and label your first container “A” and the lid “A.” Label the next container “B” and its lid “B.” Do you see where I’m going with this? Give every container a different letter of the alphabet. If you come to “Z” and you still have containers, I encourage you to question whether you truly need more than 26 containers. If we’re being perfectly honest here, I went to the letter “Q,” and was surprised to find that I own 17 containers.
