Pantry Nightmares: Oxo Pop Container Giveaway


Does your pantry look like this? Ours was a recurring nightmare. No matter how many times we tried to clean the pantry, it would rear its messy, disorganized face again like a bad garden weed. Our pantry troubles began in our small apartment and followed us into our new home. We had bags of noodles, spices, flour, all intermingled. Some were in the original packaging while others wrapped in plastic grocery bags. We used our memory to remember what we had, instead of any organized method of inventory. Commonly we’ll buy new bags of spices because we couldn’t find the old bag. At last count, we had four bags of sesame seeds-two of them were partially used.

Before the Lunar New Year, Tết, it’s traditional to clean and organize your house. This new year, we resolved to clean and organize our pantry. We had to find something that would be versatile, easy to use, long lasting, and space saving. So the first time we tried Oxo Pop containers, we knew we had to get more. Check out how we solved our pantry nightmares:

In the past, inevitably, our pantry would go from order to disorder very quickly after a reorganization, but now, three weeks with the Oxo pop containers, everything has it’s place our pantry hasn’t disintergrated into a disorganized morass like before. We love it! Our pantry nightmares has been Oxo-fied!

    I’ve been debating whether or not to get these containers for quite some time now! You guys just made me want to get them even more. I’m always looking for new ways to organize my kitchen since we’re renting and the kitchen is so small. Love this idea!

    That looks awesome!! How does it do in terms of freshness? Especially the nuts… I’ve used other containers but they always left my snacks stale.

I’m always looking for new suggestions on how to organize my home since we’re choosing and the home or home or home or home or home is so little. Really like this idea!

    My home looks more excessive than that, unfortunatly. Status out to substitute into my new home to have a larger and more arranged one!

    That looks awesome!! How does it do with regards to freshness? Especially the nuts… I’ve used other bins but they always gradually progressively gradually gradually eventually left my treats old.

    First, I love your blog, it’s so inspiration!

    Second, I’ve seen these at Home Good & Target; and been meaning to try them out. May be I’ll give it a try. I’ve use other containers from bed bath and beyond and hate them.

    I just found your blog via Pinterest! Had to comment on this video and post because I LOVE my OXO Pop containers! They really are the best space saver and make the pantry just so much more efficient and pleasant to look in!

    P.S. My DH was like “Are you watching an infomercial for your containers online?!?!” lol

    I adore my OXO Pop containers! I got a bunch more to reorganize my pantry. I also picked up some chalkboard vinyl decals to stick on each container to label them. They make my pantry look neat and organized. I love how I don’t have to tell my hubby where things are when he asks for the flour. 😀
