This tip comes from my reader April:
I’ve recently discovered a way to save money on buying pantry storage containers. I was tired of all the small, opened bags of baking items like chocolate chips, various nuts, marshmallows, etc. I had previously either used a chip clip to close them back or put them in a ziploc baggie but it was a big pile on the shelf of my pantry and I wanted a better way to organize them. I looked at buying some more pantry storage containers like I have for my sugar, flour, etc but those are so expensive. While I was rinsing out a plastic mayo jar to recycle, I had a voila moment. Why not reuse the jar? Now I save the jars from mayo, peanut butter, jelly, etc to store smaller dry good items in my pantry. Not only does it save money but it is good for the environment. Best of all I can see what’s on my shelf! By the way, adding baking soda, vinegar and hot water to a jar will help get rid of any residual smell from the previous contents. Just don’t close up the lid until the bubbling is all done and the pressure is released.
