Tip of the Day: Streamline Your Pantry

In Tips on September 29, 2011 at 11:39 am

Three boxes of half empty sugar, two-year old flour closed with a rubber band, brown rice scattered on the cabinet shelf; a variable war zone of common pantry items.  Does this sound familiar? With limited space it’s easy to fall victim to chronic pantry disorganization.

Avoid becoming just another statistic and try streamlining your pantry.  I suggest purchasing hermetic glass jars to store dry ingredients. You’ll be able to see what you have on hand and stay organized. They’re inexpensive and seal to keep moisture and air out, keeping items fresher, longer.  If you want to get really fancy, label and date each jar.

To purchase: The Container Store, $2.99 each
