Being organized in the kitchen has many benefits. Knowing what ingredients you have and where to find them is always a plus! While we were visiting my parents at Thanksgiving, I found two new stores that I LOVE! First was Ikea. I could have taken home everything in that store! The second was The Container Store. I was searching for canisters for my new pantry. I wanted clear, air-tight, and plastic (for kid safety). I found these awesome containers! They fit the bill! I purchased two of the largest ones and one for spaghetti first. I am always leery of new products and wanted to see how they would work for me. Needless to say, I ordered 24 more online. The first of three boxes arrived yesterday! I also ordered packet containers for tea bags and instant oatmeal. I can't wait for the remaining boxes to arrive!
In the meantime, I am on the prowl for new side dishes. It seems like we always have a veggie and salad, but you get tired of the same veggie. So I'm gonna give this one a try tonight:
