Clean Up Kitchen Clutter


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.


The OXO Good Grips POP Containers are airtight thanks to a unique push-button mechanism that creates a seal with just one touch. The button also serves as a handle to lift off the lid. The POP Containers are available in 12 different sizes to meet your dry food storage needs. The lid comes apart for thorough cleaning. All POP Containers are BPA-free.

Disclosure: We have been sponsored by OXO in the past. This however was not a sponsored post. I bought the canisters myself in my ongoing quest to stay sane in a small-ish city space.
