Double your pantry space with one simple craft
Once upon a time, I lived in a tiny apartment in Hollywood, with little storage space and big aspirations! Food aspirations, that is! My roommate and I used one itty-bitty cabinet as our entire pantry. We would cram our food items into the small space by stacking them high and hoping that the mountain of food wouldn’t topple over every time we opened the cabinet doors.
Looking back now, I wish I would have considered using glass jars to display some of my dry food items on a shelf or countertop. Streamlining dry foods by storing them in transparent containers is a great tip I’ve learned as an organizer. Moving these items out of the pantry frees up space in a tiny kitchen!
If your kitchen is busting at the seams and needs a bit of reorganizing, consider these chic DIY food jars. Marij Hessel, of Enter My Attic, used just a few supplies to create this striking jar display. We love when creativity meets organization! Bring a little art and personality to your kitchen jar collection with this fantastic DIY. Thank you Marij for sharing this fun project with our readers.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
