I don't know about your pantry cupboards, but I am frequently finding that my baking supplies tend to take over the whole place. I would go into the cupboard looking for something specific for a recipe and end up thinking we had ran out of it and double buying it, simply because I did not have a good organizational system. I had a set of four canisters that I kept on the counter already that held flour, white sugar, brown sugar, and baking soda, but I wanted a different look. I wanted to be able to display all of my commonly used baking supplies so they would be at my finger tips when ever I needed them.
I decided that as a Christmas present to myself, I was going to revamp my baking supplies by adding some canisters!
The first part of this project required me to find good quality, affordable canisters. I have seen ones I like in big name designer stores where each canister can cost up to $15.00. This would be completely unacceptable considering how many I planned on purchasing.
After a couple trips to various discount stores and dollar stores I found ones that were extremely affordable and would match the decor of my kitchen since I decided to display them. I found glass canisters with stainless steel lids in various sizes that would work perfectly for this project. I purchased 6 large canisters and 2 small canisters to start.
Each large canister retailed for $2.00 each and each small canister retail for $1.50 each. This put me at a total of about $15.00.
What Did I Put In My Canisters?
- White Sugar
- Brown Sugar
- Cocoa Powder
- Icing Sugar
- Baking Soda
- Baking Powder

Here is the final product:
I am extremely happy with the final outcome.
Large Canisters $2.00 x 6 = $12.00
Small Canisters $1.50 x 2 = $3.00
Labels $0.50 each x 8 = $4.00
Giving us a grand total of $19.00!
