And when the dizzying season finally ends, our apartments look like a festive bomb went off inside them — with our kitchens as the main impact zone.

Ahead we've rounded up the 12 sleek bins, buckets, and boxes to help streamline your groceries during the oncoming cooking battles.
Scroll on to shop these must-buys that will turn your refrigerator shelves into an organized oasis — from chic acrylic containers to colorful herb keepers, reusable produce bags, funky air fresheners, and more — plus the cleaning tips to help you get there.
