one of the first things that I made a priority for this new year is eliminating useless clutter.
I went through the cabinets and got rid of useless mismatched dishes and almost everything that was crappy and plastic. now because all of the 'like items' are grouped together its a pleasure to make coffee in the morning. the coffee beans, the ginder and the french press are all together, ahhhhh.
I also bought one regular size and one large size case of mason jars for the pantry. I threw out so much packaging and condensed everything to uniform sized jars. now all my baking items are together and easy to identify. I can also see exactly how much is left of everything in the pantry before going to the grocery store. we use the mason jars for leftovers and food storage in the fridge and freezer as well as they can go from frozen to the fridge and even to a microwave (if we had one, but we never will, but thats not the point) if we wanted.
my favorite thing to store in mason jars - soup! you can freeze it, then defrost it and even eat it right of of the jar, no need for extra dishes.
if you attempt something similar then I highly recommend a funnel. I didn't have one so I made one out of a pie plate that I pressed the middle down to make a cone shape and then punched a medium sized hole in the center of. easy and cheap!
