Dried goods in clear containers give you more shelf space and a on hand visual.
Putting my flour, sugar, brown sugar, pasta, rice, flax and bran in clear containers clears up space on my shelves. It's easier to stack Tupperware than it is to stack individual odd sized bags and boxes.
This has a way of snowballing... It gives me a visual of what I have of each, so I don't buy more and this prevents clutter.
I have less boxes, from less places, which creates less dirt and grime on my shelves.
My clean time is less for wiping down the pantry shelves.
