“A place for everything, and everything in its place.”
“Waste not, want not.”
“A stitch, in time, saves nine.”
Don’t you love those cliches? They make sense for our homes today as much as they ever did. An organized home helps keep some sense of order and calm in the midst of these incredibly busy days that fill our lives! Planning ahead is a good thing, as is being frugal.
No wonder I found three opened boxes of pasta in the pantry during my year-end pantry cleaning. The shelves had gotten so disorganized during the holiday rush that I’d reached for a new package again and again, not realizing what we had. A bag of nuts had to be thrown away because we hadn’t stored them properly.
Because #CleanCouponing means being frugal with more than money, we’re looking at ways to save time, energy and other valuable resources with the household choices we make.
One ongoing goal for our kitchen and pantry area is to eliminate plastic, per information from top environmental scientists of our day. While some cleaner versions and recycled versions of plastic do exist, we need non-plastic items especially for use with microwaves and dishwashers. Ideally, all our pantry storage containers would be converted from plastic to glass. As we find more value-priced, bulk-bin staples that eliminate packaging waste, those clear storage containers really come in handy.
On our pantry wish list is this variety of glass storage containers from Mighty Nest, which would be a beautiful place to store flour, pasta, rice, beans or popcorn. Stocking up with neat, non-toxic storage containers would be a clever way to start off the year. More portable stainless steel containers offer another food storage solution. A variety of smart storage ideas are enough to inspire all of us to keep everything in its place.
What if planning ahead could help eliminate an entire year’s worth of expense on plastic wraps? This sweet set of Bee’s Wrap and silicone storage top could be used over and over atop containers we already have at home.
Who has something left in your pantry or freezer that you reluctantly purchased in a school fundraiser last year, although it’s not something you’d normally buy?

Together, you and other families in your community can send 15% of your Mighty Nest purchases to your local school.
