**CLOSED**Giveaway: Rubbermaid Modular Canisters



Is your pantry a problem? Most people share the same frustrations: wasted space from various boxes, bags and canisters from the grocery store; bags that don't close properly resulting in stale food; not being able to find what you need because items weren't put away in their proper spot; wire shelving that causes bags or boxes to topple over.

But those clever folks at Rubbermaid have come up with a solution. Take a look at Rubbermaid's newest product: Modular Canisters.



Organizing your pantry has never been easier. Rubbermaid sent me a box of these new canisters and I have to say, I am impressed. The 8-piece set contains four clear canister bases: 5 cup, 10 cup, 16 cup, and 21 cup; as well as four interchangeable red lids. That's what I love most about Rubbermaid products, they always try to make it easier for you; each of those red lids fits on any of the canisters so there's no need to launch a search and destroy mission to find the exact lid for a canister. Each lid will fit on any of the canisters. Rubbermaid lids are easy to snap on the canisters; they fit securely providing an airtight seal on the canisters. I've had other container products that I always seem to have a problem with the lids fitting on the container..it's almost like they shrink or warp and it takes an act of Congress to put that lid on the container. Not Rubbermaid, even after dishwashing, their lids always manage to hold their shape and snap right back on the canisters.

I know it's difficult to imagine the size by just looking at the photos, but the 21 cup canister is really large and the perfect size for flour, cereal or dried pasta. I decided to use mine to store saltine crackers, which is my husband's favorite snack. We normally have at least 3 boxes of Saltines in the cupboard, each box containing a package here or a package there, most of them my husband has started on a sleeve and didn't finish. He twists the package and then puts them back in the box and they normally go stale before he goes back for another round. I consolidated our cracker supply into the 21 cup canister...no more stale crackers!

I'm using the 16 cup canister to store sugar and it could also be used to store cookies..another item that the kids never seem to be able to close properly resulting in stale cookies. The 10 cup container is great for rice, dried fruit or granola and I'm using mine for oatmeal. The 6 cup canister is good for baking soda, baking powder or coffee. I've turned mine into chocolate chip storage, which is an item I sometimes add to plain oatmeal so the bag is normally closed with a twist tie that doesn't always work. Countless times I've had a chocolate chip mess to clean up in my pantry because the bag opened up and the chips spilled out. Not a good idea since I also seem to have a problem with ants in the spring and summer. I do whatever I can to make sure I don't attract them into the cupboards.

The canisters were designed to maximize space in your pantry. They stack evenly and each canister also has a durable base and graduation marks on the side of the container for measuring:



After organizing my canisters, I made sure to label each canister with what's inside. While they're clear, it's easy to mistake baking powder for powdered sugar. In addition, you can add expiration dates to your labels or even cut the preparation directions from the original container and tape them to your modular canisters. After using my current set, I realized I really want another set to store my instant mashed potatoes, rice, noodles and brown sugar. Especially with the instant potatoes, I never know how much of the box I have left until I start pouring. With these clear canisters, I can easily see if I have enough product left or if I need to purchase more. I can just cut the package directions off the box and tape it to the side of the container. So simple!

If you're looking for some great organizing tips and tricks, you can check out the Rubbermaid blog; Adventures in Organization. The organizing experts are Rubbermaid want to help you use their products to their maximum efficiency and show you just what Rubbermaid can do to add affordable organization your life.

Brianna S said...

My biggest frustration is having multiple boxes of something (like cheese nips) and having both boxes open which normally means that one goes stale. I also get frustrated with bulk stuff that takes up so much cupboard room. I would probably store snacks in the containers such as chips, crackers, cookies and probably some baking goods like chocolate chips, flour, etc.

my biggest pantry frustration is that I don't have one! So I stock up on all the non-perishables and really have no place to store them!

I'd love those modular canisters for cereal, flour, rice ...
