Secrets of Success

Organizing The Kitchen Pantry



I do not have a lot of money to buy the clear vacuum seal containers for the pantry so in the meantime I am using ziplock bags for pastas after I open the box. It takes up less space and I can see the pasta.
I transfer cereals into gallon storage bags and put them back in the box. The cereal stays fresher longer this way.

  • Great idea. I've had problems with bugs and bags getting tipped over. I use the snack-size for treats. It never occurred to me to use the larger bags for pasta and cereals. emoticon - by PAMNANGEL
  • This also keeps the bugs and moths out. We had a problem when they were brought in a box of oatmeal. we had to put everything in plastic & vacuum the pantry so there was nothing for them to eat & they starved to death. (Of course, every time we saw one we swatted it also) - by PEGGIE57
