When life gives you a box of spaghetti, you are faced with a tough option (not including the option to just eat the whole box). Do you transfer the contents into a jar or container, or do you keep it in the box? Keeping it in the box feels more practical - all of the instructions are right there at your disposal. But leaving all those half empty boxes of pasta creates an eye-sore in your pantry and a potential mess when you accidentally grab it upside down (guilty).
So this little trick seems to solve every pasta problem but the carbs. Get a jar for each pasta, rice, and grain, a chalkboard label, and a chalkboard pen. Include the cook-time any instructions you need to reference. For instance, in the below pantry, quinoa was a new item and not something they regularly cooked. It will save time looking up cooking directions if you put the steps on the label.
Here are some of our favorite canisters and jars to have on-hand:
