Pantry Organization #POPtober

by Amy Kim on October 13, 2014 · 4 comments

Do you have that one cabinet that is overstuffed with goodies and snacks? Where when you open the door, you brace yourself for the avalanche of clipped snack bags and boxes? I have two such cabinets. I love those snack bags with the “zip” closure, but half the time, they never close properly or I just completely mangle the plastic strips to the point where they are rendered useless. Bag clips are good, but only if you consume the contents of the bag within a couple of days before they transform into stale woody morsels. Then you have the crushed boxes that are just piled on top of one another. Here’s a shot of my embarrassingly cluttered snack cabinet. Utterly shameful.

Then there’s my other cabinet above the stove with opened bags of flours, sugars, and other powdery foodstuff. It’s not too bad, but I access these items pretty often and they are not conveniently located.

Do these sights look familiar? Or have I just completely shocked you with these shameful images? Oh, but nary a worry, it’s OXO to the rescue! I bought my first POP Container years ago and the simplicity of the design just won me over. I’m gradually replacing my old mismatched containers with new POP Containers.

How do I love thee, OXO Pop Containers? Let me count the ways…

  • Easy to use – Pop-open lids on the containers and dispensers can be opened with just one hand.
  • Looks great – Flat lids and POP Containers were designed for stacking and the square and rectangular shapes make POP Containers space efficient.
  • Well-made – the containers are clear BPA-free plastic, airtight, and are kid-tested in my household!

Here’s how OXO Pop Containers saved my kitchen! No more cabinet avalanches!

And my counter looks much neater and I can easily scoop out what I need thanks to the large mouths on these containers!

OXO designs each one of their products with the concept of Universal Design in mind – making products and the built environment accessible for everyone – young, old, those with and without disabilities. Having done a stint as a building code and an ADA consultant (American with Disabilities Act), I’m very familiar with the concept and appreciate the inclusion of this concept by OXO. I use OXO kitchen tools everyday, many of which I’ve had for over a decade!

This month, The Container Store has partnered with OXO to fuel our (yes, our!) passion for an organized pantry and kitchen. I simply get giddy and weak in the knees when I walk into The Container Store. It has everything you need for organizing your pantry, kitchen, and much more! And you guessed it, OXO POP Containers are available at The Container Store nationwide or online at Here’s just a few items on my growing wish list of OXO Organization Tools:

A Bowlful of Creepy Crawlies! #SundaySupper #Halloween

September 28, 2014

The lazy days of summer are distant memories. School is in full-swing now. Last week the chilly air greeted us in the mornings, but usually disappeared by afternoon. This week the chill has decided to stay requiring me to don my old San Francisco outfit of shorts topped with a fleece jacket. Black and orange […]

Yesterday was officially the last day of summer! It’s difficult to wrap my head around that notion since we are two weeks into school and I’ve already volunteered for the school’s annual book fair. And as I do every fall, I max out on the kids’ activities so now I’m shuttling the kids to various […]

Once I start seeing commercials for the U.S. Open, I know summer is slowly coming to a close. It’s been an incredible summer and the weather has been phenomenal. The kids loved summer camp, they learned how to ride bicycles, we explored a couple of East Coast beaches, and while it was incredibly busy, it […]

Tuna Tartare #SundaySupper

July 6, 2014

How hot is it where you live? We had a good 1-2 weeks of comfortable spring weather and then BAM! Summer came in like a roaring fire hand-in-hand with swampy humidity. On the flip side, we’ve had some torrential downpours and severe thunderstorms that came with nature’s fireworks. Regardless of the end-of-the-world steamy and flash […]
