Glass Container Options
If you would rather buy glass containers, let me give you this option real quick. They hold about 16-24 ounces, and would be great for grains, snacks, bone-broth, or anything that you might buy in the bulk section.
Plus, they have a bunch of styles and sizes to choose from too! 😉
I wanted to give you an over-view of all the containers they have for organizing your pantries. There are even more colored lids like red, purple, and orange. I do not care for the quality of the purple lids, but all the other colors were nice. I love all the large round, square, and rectangular options at the bottom.
Refrigerator containers are all the rage, and Dollar Tree has you covered. I have seen other options too. These refrigerator organizers are for sodas and juice boxes, but you can also use them for your pantry. I store my mason jar lids in the more narrow one. It’s perfect!
Tubs To Help You Stay Organized
For the pantry, I prefer clear containers for storing food, however, these white bins are so nice to have for loose snacks like popcorn, applesauce pouches, granola bars, etc.
Most people would probably like neutral colors in the pantry, and they definitely have a nice selection of them. I also like that they are see-through and come in different sizes.
If you like the brighter colors, then Dollar Tree definitely has you covered! They also had red and turquoise choices. There are bins to meet all your pantry needs.
This style of bin is very popular because of the handle, and if you keep them on a lower shelf, then you can easily see what’s inside. When I would buy variety packs of Quaker instant oatmeal, I would keep them loosely in these types of bins. It keeps them all together and organized.
If you just can’t do colors, then check these clear containers out in the HOME section. There are many styles and shapes to choose from.
Here is an overview of all the sizes. I even like the white lower bins at the bottom.
I like that 3 come in a pack for $1.00! It’s a great way to stretch your budget.
Moving right along, lets now talk about your cabinets. These wired bins are perfect for utensils and can easily hold office supplies.
This dish rack looks like a great idea, but in my kitchen I needed it for my Pyrex glass dish lids. The way that my glass baking dishes and lids were just floating in this cabinet were driving me crazy! Now the lids are nicely organized.
I LOVE these COPYCAT drawer organizers! They are just like the OXO ones at Target, but for a fraction of the price! They are perfect for your media center and for cooking utensils. These are your best option to optimize your kitchen organization.
They do not move around either, which seriously helps keep my stuff organized. Here is the combination of sizes I purchased to organize my drawer.
In my media drawer, I have these containers, again a 3-pack for $1.00, to hold paper clips, claw clips, keys, and hair ties.
Fruit bowls are a necessity in this house. I think these are just perfect! See that handle?!? You could even hang it! Dollar Tree sells wire brackets in the GARDEN section, so you could hang these on the wall if you want to. (Sorry, I’ve never seen it done. No picture. Just thought of it in my head) They would also be great in the pantry for loose produce.
Do you buy spices in bulk, or the large containers of spices at Costco? I use these for salt and pepper, and cinnamon. Whatever spices you use the most often, try using these little glass jars.
How To Keep Counters Organized
This is how I keep them on my counter. I bought this little turntable at Bed Bath and Beyond for $5.99. I love having all my necessary items right next to the stove for the perfect kitchen organization.
Also, if you use a lot of powdered sugar, or other granulated sugar, you may like these sugar holders. Even coconut sugar or maple sugar would work in these! If you make your own cinnamon sugar for toast, then these are perfect!
Going back to the containers section, I love using these to store soup in. However, I also LOVE using them to store fresh produce in the refrigerator. These are also BPA FREE! They hold 4 cups and are dishwasher safe too.
Buying carrots and celery is one thing, but actually making sure they get eaten is another. These containers are perfect for storing these. Just cut the produce, add filtered water to them, and store in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. The water keeps the produce cold and crisp!
Meal Planning Tips
Having trouble with meal planning? Maybe this $1.00 dry-erase magnetic planner will help. Place on your refrigerator and use it! There are enough spots for:
Don’t forget about these magnetic listpads for keeping track of the groceries you need to buy.
Amazing Cleaning Supplies
Finally, check out all the cleaning supplies. You don’t need to spend a fortune on cleaning.
The blue and white brushes are perfect for keeping in the sink to help clean pans and dishes.
Make your own cleaning supplies with these bottles.
I like my kids to help me clean, but I don’t want them using harsh chemicals. So I take these bottles and add a few slices of orange or lemon rind to them, let them sit for a few weeks in the vinegar, then add them to the spray bottles with water. 50/50 vinegar and water.
Favorite Snack/Dip Containers
Finally, I LOVE these little containers for sending treats or peanut butter for dipping in my kids lunches to school. They come in square and round shapes.
