Organizing The Spices & Pantry: Storage Containers

in tribesteemup •  5 months ago

Yes... most people who know me, know how OCD I am and how I like to have EVERYTHING uniform and a certain way.

So my OCD ways is moving into the pantry again!

This is a perfect chore and task to do on rainy days and into the approaching cooler (non gardening) months.

As you can see from the above picture, I have various size jars and glass containers I am using. From the 1/2 gallon Mason jars to the smaller 1/2-pint jars. Each size has a purpose and, as I said I like everything uniform, this will hopefully be a task I can keep up with as I add new spices, herbs or organic sugars and seasonings to my stock.

Since I buy items like my Himalayan Pink Salt, Organic coconut sugar and pure cane sugar in bulk online, I need larger jars (1/2 gallon Mason) to keep items stored in the pantry and I use the smaller ones (with the white lids I purchase at the Dollar Tree) for every day items.

I am in the process of getting even more organized in the kitchen. Yeah..yeah... I know most of you are saying.. organized? Again? But yes, I am.

I have been wanting to get my pantry in tip-top shape for some time now and starting with my herbs, spices and sugars is the starting point for me.

This will be a step process that will occur over the course of some time. I believe I have most, if not all, of the jars, containers and storage pieces I will need; so we'll see how it goes as I delve into this task.

I'm hoping in between harvesting garden vegetables and herbs and then canning or dehydrating everything; plus being active on steemit and Discord, I'll be able to slowly start the transformation of all the pantry changes I want to accomplish over the next month.

I always feel like a weight has been lifted after organising my pantry cupboard, end up having tons of space! I like your containers :)

I need to do this too.

Way to go! That's such a good idea going into winter. We have tons of mason jars for this. Airtight and keeps the bugs out. :)

Those jars are awesome. I can't wait to see your pantry when you are done! It will be amazing!

Oh, I'm OCD in that way as well, labels and all... haha...

I am your OCD sister 😀 You and your jars, me and my crafts boxes. All the same size and shapes, aligned on the shelves. I get nervous when I have visitors in my art studio. They can’t touch anything! 🤣

That's a once in a year chore for me, but when I get to it, I usually go all out too :)

I really love d way u organize and i try avoid plastics to store food items.

Nice buy with coupons and a bogo deal!! Wow! That sounds like a great project and will look great! Love that!

I am very like you, like everything neat and orderly. Everything labeled and dated. If I can manage it, I like things uniform too. From spice cabinet to my pantry to my root cellar to my 5 freezers....

I did a de-clutter the other day with my art things - paint brushes, old paints etc and now everything is looking organised again - makes one feel so much better.

I can't see any need to apologize for being organized @goldendawne , OCD can be reversed if you work at . Line things up crooked for starters and then work from there.

Yes I can be a bit like that also, it just makes life a lot easier if everything is organized and in its place. That way when you need something, it will be there and you don’t have to waste time looking all over the place. I also like to have another full packet or jar of each, so when the first one runs out, I have plenty of time to wait for that item to be on special before I run out, and have to buy it at full price :)

howdy this fine Sunday evening goldendawne! wow miss OCD! but that's the best way to be for this kind of thing! lol.
