I don’t know what it is about fall, but I’ve been on a cleaning and organizing kick. Maybe it’s because school is back in session and we (I) have to be more organized and put together with meals and week night dinners.
I actually have two sets of pantry cabinets . . we built another one shortly after moving into our house because I have a shopping problem when it comes to food. Please tell me I’m not alone.
I have to show you the horrid “before” photo so you can see how awesome my pantry is now. I know this is a mess and as you can see, we just proceeded to dump all sorts of things in our pantry with no rhyme or reason. This is absolutely embarrassing but I don’t mind showing you this because I’m in a good place now.
So much better, right? Only problem: I need MORE containers!! The cleaning/purging/organizing exercise was wonderful. I’m not going to tell you how many bags of chocolate chip morsels I found stashed away in the back of my pantry. And the number of half eaten potato chip bags, granola, pretzels and even a half eaten container of travel size peanut butter. Did you know they make these now? I’m sure this was left here by my lovely Madeline . . who surprisingly also wrapped it in saran wrap?! I have no idea. .
These POP Containers from OXO were just what I needed to get organized. My biggest pet peeve about these kind of containers is that they are hard to open and close. I want my kids to be as self-sufficient as possible and I even let my oldest get her own snack sometimes when she gets home from school. They can open and close (with success!) these POP containers all on their own. Pop-Open lids on the Containers and Dispensers can be opened with just one hand. Check out my rad video where I show this.
The other winning thing I love about these containers: you can stack them! I want to make the most out of my pantry space so stacking is key. The flat lids were designed especially for this. They also come in various sizes, small, square and rectangular because you don’t just need one size container. These things are brilliant I tell you.
So where can you find these fabulous containers? POP Containers are available at The Container Store locations nationwide or online at www.containerstore.com. I love the Container Store. I could seriously spend a full day in this store and not want to leave. Like ever. If you’re looking to organize your pantry and kitchen, The Container Store seriously has everything you will ever need. Seriously.
