As you know Ive been on this quest to find some plastic containers that will help me organize my pantry but I didnt want to spend any money. I know, what a wonderful dream . I had those little bugs that come with flour and boxed items before, Ewwwww, and I dont want them again and since Ive been coupon shopping like a made women I want the food Ive worked so hard to get a deal on, to last. So Im considering it a good investment.

I had a gift card that I wanted to use but everything I found was expensive and I would have only been able to get a few containers. I went to Target yesterday and they were having a sale on their containers. I got (4) 6qt., (4) 4qt. and a cake tote. The cake tote is the exact one I wanted :) (Look Linda I found it :) And the best thing is I got to the register with groceries, containers, and coupons of course, and the cashier saw I had a $10 off coupon if you spent $50 on home goods. I said "I dont think I spent $50" and she said it will work anyway so let's use it. YIPPIE! So instead of 9 containers costing ab. $33 they only cost $23. I have money left on my gift card!!! whhhahhhahhh.
Happy dance Happy dance !

Here they are.... I'll post an after photo as soon as Im done fillem up!

Great job! What a deal!

I just heard about a new blog that's being started about saving money on grocery bills/feeding the family. I don't know what it will end up being like, but I thought I'd let you know about it in case it ends up being useful. It's kitchenco-op.blogspot.com .

Oh...and thanks for commenting on my door. I think you're right about the black :).

I had the same problem you did with those nasty bugs that really like dry things like rice, oatmeal and flour. Those are the very same containers I bought and they have worked wonderfully for me. Good luck with yours.
