In this video I show you a quick organizational tip for storing rice in air-tight containers in your pantry closet.

Video Details

Hi everyone, it’s Alejandra. And in this video, I just want to give you guys a quick tip for storing different types of rice in the pantry. So this is where I have all my dry goods inside the pantry. If you want to see my full pantry organizing video I did a while ago, I will put a link to it at the bottom of the video. But yeah, this is my dry goods.

Tips for Storing Rice & Dry Goods in Your Pantry

So my tip for this video is if you have a lot of rice like I do here… I have five or six varieties of rice, white rice, there is basmati rice, jasmine rice, wild rice, red quinoa, and brown rice.

So what you don’t want to do is – I mean you can do this but I feel like I don’t want to do this because it takes up a lot of space, is have all these little containers for each single rice like it’s going to take up so much space. You have to go out and buy more containers.

So what I did here was I put all of my different varieties of rice into a Ziploc bag just like this and then I cut the outside of the original bag out and I taped it to the front of the Ziploc bag so I know exactly what is what. So brown rice is right there, red quinoa right there, and so forth. So now, all of the rice is inside one airtight container just like that. It’s sorted by category, it’s easy to access, and it saves room because everything is in one container.

Now, you can do the same thing if you have a lot of different varieties of beans like those bags of beans that you can get. Just do the same thing. I have one variety right now so that’s why there’s only one.

But yeah, I hope this video was helpful and if you want to check out my full pantry tour, I will put a link to that video below. OK. I’ll see you guys soon. Bye.
