Glass Storage

Yesterday I received a pack of Ball jars that I ordered last week...
the half gallon size.
I love how big these are.

I already filled them with grains, dry legumes and nuts.
Can you tell I am organizing?
I guess it's one of those things most people do with 

the New Year.

I buy my grains, legumes and nuts in bulks, 
so I need to have enough conveniently out at all times, and the rest stored away in a dry and cool place.
These are the perfect size for my needs,
and love glass storage.
giving you and idea on how big these jars really are
I didn't make any labels, as the foods inside are pretty self explanatory.
I am planning on building a little "rolling pantry".
Tomorrow I will definitely get my saw out and get moving on a few projects I have been wanting to start.

Love the jars, I need to organize my panty, it is totally out of control.

I had no idea you could buy these so big! Love the look and the convenience.

Those jars are wonderful! I know you are a cook that likes to use your own items rather than a mix, so these jars will come in handy! I think they look beautiful displayed like that too.

Those big jars must be so convenient. I love using glass jars for storage as well.

Love the jars and I, as well as most, store my pantry items in glass jars; all my different pastas, by brown and white sugar, powdered sugar, tea bags,etc.

I too didn't realize you could get these so big. I want some myself to organize my beans and staples. Like you I buy them in bulk and have been using saved jars such as spaghetti and peanut butter, but this means I have multiple jars of the same foods.

I also didn't know they were available in this size. Great to know and they look so pretty all filled up with your goodies.

A rolling pantry, huh? I can't wait to see!!! I love your jars and love that you kept them so simple. I couldn't agree more, what's inside is pretty enough, no need for labels.

Love the size of those jars Daniela...they make for such a pretty display!

I have been wanting to store dried goods in Mason jars for a while. It's like art with a purpose. :-)

Where can these jars be ordered? I love the silver lids and the idea of the jars matching.

Great idea. I love jars for storing items in too.
Can not wait to see your pantry.
Good luck with it.

Meredith @ The Laundry Can Wait said...

The cook in you will "relish" having these items organized...And it looks pretty, too. :) XOXO

I had no idea that Mason jars came in such a big size! I love those and I love that you can see what you've stored. I'm going to look for some for my new pantry. Thanks for sharing such a great find!

I have the organizing bug every January too. I actually love the feeling of putting away all the decorations and moving into a stage of organizing and purging.
