Have you all noticed the intense craze that is jarring? As much as I won’t jar everything and start to home make all my sauces and jams, I still like the idea or organising your staple items in jars. It looks cleaner, and makes me feel like I have my shit together.
When I initially bought all the jars, I really didn’t have a clue what I was putting in each one. I figured when I organised the pantry, I would just figure it out. And I did, amazingly so. These items include:
- Brown Rice
- Self Raising Flour
- Whole Wheat Flour
- Plain Flour
- Chia Seeds
- Tea Bags
I chose a lot of items that get bought in bulk so that it would fill up the big jars like flour, brown rice, and oats. I use these all very regularly so it only made sense.
I also wanted to include the healthy food I use in there as well because I tend to add chia seeds and flaxmeal to energy balls, smoothies, or my oatmeal.
And I, of course, had to include sweetener in there as we already have our Coffee, Tea, and Sugar tins next to the coffee machine on the countertop. As I use only Stevia in my coffee, I wanted to have my sugar jarred too! 😛
And to be honest, I just put the popcorn and tea bags in the smallest jars because I didn’t know what else to put in them.
I manged to fit these all in the pantry when I reorganised it and I will have to say that I’m quite happy with it. It looks much nicer and tidier.
I have an order from Tropeaka on it’s way here with some powders that I would really like to eventually jar. However, I don’t think we really have the space. Thankfully their packaging is very nice to look at anyway. And I plan to store it with my supplements anyway so no one will see it. I’m probably just being anal, as always.
I still have 3 mason jars that I use for smoothies, shakes, or my overnight oats.
Are there any tips you have that you can share with me? Where you do guys all get your jars from? I bought mine from Amazon here if you’re interested. I wanted the ones you can label with chalk, because yeah I’mma blogger 🙂
