Details: Whether you’re toting cupcakes to your daughter’s classroom or storing holiday decorations, the pieces we use to stay organized should calm chaos simply and easily. Snapware helps you organize your home efficiently, from closet to kitchen and everywhere in between. With the “snap” of a lid, Snapware brings order and organization to the home.

Snapware is always developing new innovations that will help simplify, de-clutter and organize your life so you can spend time on what matters most. From dry and wet foods, crafts, seasonal storage, pet, garage, closets and more, Snapware has an organizing solution.

Snapware is now turning to our Edison Nation community to find new innovations for the following food storage and organization categories:

• On-the-go food storage. Focus on lunches, potlucks, parties and other occasions where it is necessary to transport food.

• Dry food storage. Specifically for storing food in your pantry or countertop. Think of ways to keep access easy while maintaining an efficient use of space.

Things to keep in mind:

• All food storage solutions should be airtight and leak-proof, and must include an audible “snap” closure.

• Think of storage solutions that have color and style in their design

• Focus on innovations that can be made with: glass, BPA-free plastic, ceramic or stainless steel
