(I remember one time a woman came over at our other house and I was getting something out of the pantry there, and she stood behind me and said, "You have all the labels facing out. I thought so." Lol. I never even paid attention to it. Truth is, Shane probably went behind me and did that. But now I do it on purpose, because it makes sense.)
I've been online looking for storage containers. But all I really need storage for is a variety of flours, rices, and nuts. Against Shane's judgment, I went for glass.
I couldn't help it. It's only for a few items: nuts, popcorn, and a couple of baking supplies. I loved the way the light reflected off the glass in all those Pinteresty pictures. And it wasn't photoshopped. It really does make everything look magical.

I went to Ikea for the best deal, because every other place seemed to want $30 for three pieces.
I did WAY better than that.
I came home and washed them up, hand dried them, and then filled them. GF baking soda. GF baking powder. Popcorn kernels. Sunflower seeds. Almonds. Walnuts. Even the dog treats got a lovely container of their own. I'm going to print off clear labels for tops and sides.
|all great sizes|
Since I'll likely be buying baking flours in bulk, I'll shell out the dollars over at King Arthur for their buckets, ranging from 5, 10, to 25 pound capacities. (Not a paid endorsement for anything and no affiliate links.)
I'm still looking for flour deals. The best I found so far was 25 lbs for $80 plus shipping for a flour blend. That was not a typo. Almond flour and coconut flour are more expensive in those quantities, but cheaper per pound in the long run.
What this means--if you get cookies or bread from me, I truly love you.
I love Ikea too.
I even got a new colander.

I have serious kitchen issues.
Williams-Sonoma has a similar effect on me.
