Buying in bulk is savvy and smart. We love to get dried good on hand--favorites include coucocus, quinoa, brown rice, lentil, whole wheat pasta. The problem was all these bulky items hogged up pantry space and often got lost in a sea of bags. OXO to the rescue. Last week I spent a night labeling and sorting in these sublime (yes, sad but true I get excited about organizing) canisters from OXO (about $15 each on Amazon for the 4 qt. size shown).
The stackable canisters are clear, square and so chic. I labeled mine (Overkill? maybe but guest chefs don't always know the difference between lentils and split peas). With my handy p-touch machine, I had everything in ship-shape in an hour or so. Total cost? But it delivered space in my pantry and peace to my soul.
