Budget Friendly Pantry Glassware - Decant for Less!

One of our top decluttering tips for the kitchen is to decant whenever possible.  Not only does it look beautiful, but you’ll also be amazed by the space saving benefits!  At Style + Dwell, we love a good deal, and for a recent kitchen project with Sarah of Brunette and Babes, we got to scope out some of the best glassware that was both beautiful + wallet friendly. Take a look at her full post here!

For your large dry good items (think those used for baking: flour, sugar, etc.), we love these gallon glass jars at $8 a piece, and half gallon size glass jars for $7. They’ll keep your products nice and fresh, and the large mouth makes scooping out what you need a breeze. They also look pretty too, whether displayed on an open shelf, a baking cabinet, or in a gorgeous pantry.

Next up: the midis.  These are the workhorses of the pantry glass world, and you’ll find oh so many uses.  Decanting pasta, rice, and lentils are just a few of our favorites.  The 8 oz glass ball jar is a wonderful size, as so many of our products come packaged in that metric.  At a $1.50 a pop, these guys are pretty hard to pass up!   If you need a bit more room, the 16oz ball jars are a great option.  We love to stick a pretty label on the front, and then note on the back any cooking time reminders.

Finally, the minis!  Oh my goodness have you all ever seen such an adorable little jar?!  Yes, I did just call a jar “adorable,” and these are oh so fun when organizing your spices!  By using this strategy you avoid buying multiples, and can easily see when you’re getting low on product.  These are a steal at $5.99 for a pack of 4.
