Want a super organized pantry? Invest in these food storage container sets for shelves that are clutter-free and easy to navigate.
After a recent Trader Joe's shopping trip, I started unpacking my bags only to realize that I hadn't planned out my grocery list that carefully. Multiple cans of beans, bags of flour, and unopened boxes of pasta were hiding in the way-back area of my pantry, meaning I had just bought a whole lot of staples I didn't actually need. (Ugh.) Unless you're Martha Stewart-level organized, chances are this has happened to you, too.
Because actually seeing everything in your pantry is key to using it up (not to mention, making an efficient shopping list), I've since become obsessed with organizing all my dry goods in containers or storage bins. The goal is for everything to have a place: baking supplies like sugar, flour, and chia seeds in clear containers; canned beans and tomatoes stacked in a bin; and bags of chips or popcorn loose in a basket. The result? It's now easier than ever to quickly find what I'm looking for in my pantry, which makes meal prep a breeze. Here, the best organizing sets I've found on Amazon.
DRAGONN 10-Piece Food Storage Set
If you don't currently own any food storage containers, this complete 10-piece set in a range of different sizes will help you get started. The cannisters have airtight seals so they can be easily stacked in any size pantry, and they're made of BPA-free plastic. One thing to note: These need to be hand-washed, so skip if you're addicted to your dishwasher.

Dry goods will be much easier to find and measure with these handy containers. The set includes five cannisters that are perfectly sized to accommodate a full bag of flour, rice, and pasta. As a bonus, you get chalkboard labels so you can easily identify what's in each one. You'll never mistake "flour" for "gluten-free flour" again.
