I live in a teeny tiny apt
and have a teen tiny kitchen to boot.
No fun with a family of 5!
And I have yet to talk my hubby into renting in the suburbs so we can have a bigger house... but that's a whole 'nother post in and of itself!
Because of my galley kitchen and lack of cupboard space I have had to get creative with the placement of things. Which is where this idea was born:
goodbye messy cupboard... hellooo organized bliss!
Not only is this aesthetically pleasing, I can now always see exactly how much I have of what!
it kinda reminds me of those old fashioned general stores you sometimes see in movies like "Dr. Quinn medicine woman", where all the store goods were on display
Granted my flour, oatmeal, and sugar bags still have a place in the pantry due to their size, but I still have a jar for them up top that I just refill from those bags.
I got each jar for around a buck and just snatch em' up whenever I see them at goodwill. I store everything that comes in a bag or box in the jars...
[raisins, corn starch, flax seed, flour, sugar, nuts, cocao, coconut etc etc]
and I never buy a jar if it doesn't have an airtight lid. Glass jars with loose lids just won't do! :)
