Kitchen Organizing Tips: Repackage Dried Food in Plastic
If your cabinet space is cramped (and whose isn’t?) repackage dried food products. Food manufacturers seem to delight in filling containers only two-thirds (or even half) full, and as the food diminishes, the size of the box doesn’t. Gain precious room by transferring most of your dry food to see-through plastic containers (and then label and date them!). Flat rectangular containers work best, since they’re stackable and ideal for storing tea bags, dried beans, rice, pasta, and cereal.
