Containerize your Kitchen & Pantry

Something my clients often discover is that kitchen organization is actually fun when treated like an art project and taken as an opportunity to bring a little function AND form to a cluttered space. Here are some great products from I stumbled on which can help you bring a little more "you" to your kitchen organization.

Don’t these sleek containers from Oxo Good Grips look better than pasta packages and pretzel bags? Try repackaging your dry goods using airtight plastic or glass jars. The set of 12 runs about $100.
