What are your favorite tools for organizing and keeping your kitchen neat?
Over the years I've used a variety of containers to organize the kitchen. The ones that I've kept share these qualities:
- Easy to use
- Small footprint (the container should be close to the size of the original packaging for an item)
I've had flour in three types of containers: Le Parfait French Glass Canning Jars with Gasket and Lid, ClickClack 4.4-Quart Stack and Seal, and Bag in Sugar Dispensers. The glass was heavy as well as bulky (one just landed in our Goodwill pile). The ClickClacks while they have a large footprint are incredibly easy to use. They hold all of the flour and have a wide enough mouth for a 1-cup measuring cup. The Bag in Sugar dispensers hold a 5 lb bag of flour. However, flour gets trapped between the bag and the container and they have a very large footprint (four just landed in our Goodwill pile).
