I have many sets of measuring cups. I keep a 1/2 cup size in my flour container, a 1 cup size in my oatmeal container, and smaller ones in my different dry ingredients such as sugar, cinnamon, salt, etc. This makes it easier than looking for the size I need for the ingredient I need it for. No more searching for my measuring cups or my measuring spoons.
Do you have too many sets of measuring cups? I think I might. To sort it out, I found some medium size containers (I had lots of large yogurt cups) and labeled them by the different capacities of each cup, and then I broke up the sets into these containers. Some sets don't include cups like 2/3 or 1/8, so I might not need the whole set, but I do want to keep those with less usual measurements.
Right now I may still have too many, but it is easier to find the measurement I'm looking for than when they were stored by sets. And I did pare down my collection by donating a set to my children's play kitchen and another to their sandbox toys. All of the measuring spoons are stored in a utensil basket saved from a discarded dishwasher. It makes them easy to access and put away.
