More & More I am thinking twice about plastic verses glass bottles or containers. I just have this funny feeling about what the plastic may be doing to us, especially when it comes to food storage. Bit by bit I have been collecting glass bottles from coffee bottles to pasta sauce bottles. I cleaned out my pantry the other day and rearranged alot of my ingredients into glass labelled bottles. I made a list and starting printing labels on sticky A4 paper - cutting to size and labelling each bottle. As I don't have a huge pantry I needed to be able to see the labels when the bottles are one behind the other. You'll see what I did in the image ...
I was also very fortunate & grateful to a dear friend of mine, Lyn, who gave me these old time bottles for storage - they will be getting filled as soon as I do more grocery shopping. Love you Lyn - they are sooo authentic! They really suit the Shabby Chic look I am progressing towards too. Especially when I get around to redoing the kitchen to French Shabby Chic!
So just start collecting bottles if that's the way you want to go. Make sure they are well cleaned & dry & have fun making up labels & filling the bottles with all your yummy & healthy things. They look so much better on open shelves than plastic too.
Have Fun with another Healthy idea !!!
