Favorite organizing tools

I get asked all the time what are my favorite organizing tools and so I’ve decided to do regular posts called “My favorite things” (cue Julie Andrews singing…..). They aren’t my favorites because someone told me about them. If you see it here, I’ve used it more than once and give it my seal of approval.

Sometimes it isn’t necessarily something related to organizing but just something that makes my life easier. You’ll see my post on a vacuum soon to understand that one ;-). Because we all need hacks, tips, and tricks to make life easier, right?

I love and use these cracker jars (yes, that is their name) all the time in pantries and kitchen cabinets. They are perfect for baking supplies like flour and sugar because they have large mouths and you can easily use a scoop.

I also love the fact that they are glass (sturdy & washable) and have screw tops. That is perfect for keeping the contents fresh and bug free.

You can use these jars for nuts, oatmeal, flour, sugar, snacks, or anything else you’d like to be airtight.

I’ve also put different kinds of nuts and snacks in them so they are quite versatile. The large mouth is also helpful for reaching in and grabbing a handful, not that I would do that myself 😉

They come in 3 sizes to suit a variety of needs. The square shape is perfect for storing in a cabinet or on a shelf. You could even use them in a craft room for supplies or bathroom for cotton balls. They will fit just about anywhere! Plus, when necessary, you can just wash in soapy water and there are no scratches like you have with most plastic.

They are sold individually at The Container Store and as a group of 3 on Amazon.

Happy organizing!
