An efficient way to store many of your smaller restaurant supplies is though a vacuum seal food storage system. Food items that you wish to preserve exactly as is -- bananas, berries, soup bones, cold cuts, etc. -- are placed into the food storage bag and excess air is removed from the bag through either a mechanical vacuum, pump, or by hand. The bag is then sealed tightly, keeping the food fresh (perishables must still be frozen or refrigerated). Even bulkier non-food items such as aprons and hand towels can be sealed into bags as well. They'll take up less space in your storage cabinets.
