These food storage containers are driving me crazy!

You know the containers I'm talking about -- they come in all shapes and sizes, Glad, Rubbermaid, Ziploc and others. They're supposedly priced so as to be disposable, or of limited use, but I can't bring myself to toss them. But where/how to store them is an ongoing challenge. There are a gazillion containers and just as many lids, but that doesn't necessarily mean there's a lid for every container, or vice versa. The storm-related power outage we experienced last week left me having to toss the contents of containers full of stuff from the freezers, so now I have more containers than I know what to do with.

Does anyone have a system for storing these containers? Where do you keep them? What do you do with them when they overrun their designated spaces? If I don't find a solution soon, I may just selectively toss them out. Help!
