Display your bulk items in canning jars, and find ledge for a perfect solution to your bulk section dilemma!

If you don’t have a ledge, or empty shelf that warrants some color, you can always store your dry goods using canning jars, and place them in your pantry, fridge, or freezer.

Not only do they add visual vibrancy to your kitchen, they also serve a real purpose by keeping your bulk items dry, airtight and uncontaminated.

They are the perfect vessel for keeping your dried legumes, grains, dried fruit, pasta, cereals, and herbs fresh. These items can stay out of the fridge for ~3-6 months, depending on the specific item. While flours do best in your freezer, and nuts and seeds are best placed in your fridge.

Canning jars come in all different sizes, so find the ones that work best for your kitchen, and have some fun!
