Simple Ideas for Hardworking Pantries
Use labels as labels.
Brightly colored boxes make it easy to spot your favorite cereal but they don’t keep it very fresh. Solution: store open boxes in Rubbermaid Cereal Keepers ($14.99/3 pk. in-Club) and use the side of the box as a label. Earn bonus cash for your school with Box Tops for Education.
Make your own single-serving bags of tempting snacks.
Big bags of chips and trail mix offer big savings — but they won’t fit in a lunch bag. Solution: Prefill Ziploc Sandwich/Snack Bags Variety Pack ($11.99/375 ct., in-Club) with all your favorites for budget-friendly snacks that are ready to grab and go.
Get more from your pantry with your phone or tablet.
After saving on a new 8.0" Samsung Galaxy Tab A, put it to work saving money on food and sundries, too, by downloading one of the hundreds of available free pantry apps. They best simplify meal planning, prevent waste and make stock-up shopping a breeze.
Create mix-and-match meals for busy nights.
There’s always time for a hot, homemade meal. Just fill Bella Storage Solution with versatile ingredients like Annie’s Macaroni & Cheese. Paired with Bumblebee White Tuna and Green Giant Whole Kernel Sweet Corn, for a no-bake tuna casserole. Or mix in Goya Black Beans, corn and lots of McCormick Chili Powder and you’ve got zesty chili mac and cheese.
