|Canning jars--useful for more than pickles|
|Yeah, not pretty but it works.|
I recently stopped off at the store with my mother because she thought the plastic storage containers she found there would be useful--they aren't clear but would do just fine for storage nonetheless. Especially considering the amount of soup I tend to make--these are freezer safe, and they're easy to hold.
I'll probably use these for soups or bulk items like oatmeal (which I eat a lot of), rice, or flour. If I can find the taller versions (she swears there is a taller version) I can store spaghetti in it; I hate storing twirly pasta in the boxes and most of the containers made for spaghetti are either too slim (I buy in bulk) or too pricey (I don't hate storing it in boxes that much).
