Tuesday's Tip of the Day: Storing Pantry "Odds and Ends"
When it comes to organizing your kitchen for ultimate functionality, productivity and efficiency, there are a few ways that simply organizing your pantry can help.
Whether baking, dredging or flouring my work surface for fresh bread, I keep flour and sugar front and center. Whatever it is that you turn to on a daily or weekly basis, finding ways to efficiently store those items on your countertop or pantry without changing the “look-appeal” is easy to do! From mason jars for smaller items (like spices), to larger containers fitted with airtight seals, there are a plethora of options to help sort through the half opened boxes of pasta, rice and beans in a stylish manner. And, storing items in like containers makes for easy stacking!
For example, Weck canning jars – with a quickly printed label across the front – can easily organize all of your spices, dried pastas from open containers, cereal, and loose “odds and ends.” OXO carries a great line of plastic storage containers in various sizes and shapes that can easily fit everything from angel hair pasta, to brown sugar, rice and even chocolate covered almonds (my personal favorite). Best of all, they have an airtight feature which protects contents and keeps air out!
Go ahead, toss out those ziplock bags with half opened containers of rice and beans and start organizing your new pantry. Your stylish and chic new pantry, that is!
