Organizing the Pantry

I have a large family so I bulk shop; however, the one thing I hate is waste, and buying something I already have. One of the things I do is put everything in clear containers so I can see it. Pastas, grains, flours, dried fruits, cereal, and nuts (Store nuts in frig). Some of the grains and pasta I buy are packages in plastic bags. I hate guessing on how to cook these items, so I cut out the cooking directions, and tape directly onto glass jars. NO guess work involved. With can goods I organize in rows by group, so it's easy for me to see what group I'm running low on. A organized pantry will help make cooking easier, and less stressful.
