I was excited enough about the bulk goods buying options at my local Reasor’s that I just had to share with you. I thought it only fair now to show you how this kind of shopping can transform the look of your pantry or kitchen. We all love a pretty, organized pantry!
So, here’s a shot of all the random containers that house my dry goods. These are all items you can buy in the bulk section and includes everything from baking staples and snacks to lentils, beans, and grains such as amaranth and quinoa. Side note: We’ve been adding amaranth and quinoa to our rice, just add it to the rice in the rice cooker and it will add protein and great texture; not sure I’ll be eating rice by itself again!
This only made me realize that I have so much stuff stashed in my pantry cabinet that should be out on the counter with these. I’m not sure if we use these items most often because they are out, or if they’re out because we use them most. I think it’s a little of both but I have a feeling that if I pull some other things out of the depth of my pantry, we’d move through them much more quickly.
How about these sweet blue jars that I snapped a pic of last time I was at Alayna’s. I forgot to ask her where she got them!
Here’s a few inspiring images to get you started. And I can tell you that just going through the process of showing you my mismatched containers certainly makes me want to finish a couple of kitchen projects that would really make my dry goods accessible and much more pleasing to the eye. How is it that before I know it, 2 years have gone by and those little finishing projects are still on the list?

You can never go wrong with canning jars, whether you pick up a case from your local grocery, or collect those beautiful blue Ball jars, they will stand up to use and always look nice. My favorite new jars are Weck.
