After many trips to TJMaxx, Home Goods, Ross, and Bed, Bath, and Beyond, I managed to scrounge together multiple Oxo Pop containers. They are great because they can be stacked nicely and preserve food with their air-tight seal. Then I labeled as many things as I possibly could. I found some wonderful labels on the Better Homes and Garden website (http://www.bhg.com/decorating/storage/organization-basics/free-printable-storage-labels/?page=8) and ta da! My pantry is complete!
When organizing, there's no need to get all fancy. Just be real! Do what will work for you and what you know that you can realistically maintain!
