For years we’ve been using this very efficient but not-so-pretty method of pet food storage: two plastic drawers stacked atop one another. This system was super functional but really not much to look at, and since I’ve been working on prettifying my laundry room that just wouldn’t do.
I considered keeping the plastic drawers and just moving them out of sight, but that would have made them pretty inconvenient to use. So I searched high and low for an attractive and functional storage solution that wasn’t stupid expensive. After a few weeks I found these two gallon glass jars at Target for only $13 each!
The first Target I went to only had one in stock, so I scooped it up and then went online to order another. Shipping made it pretty expensive, though, so I ended up ordering one from Bed Bath & Beyond instead. Well, turns out the reason it was cheaper there is that I accidentally ordered a one gallon jar. Oops. Well luckily for me by then the other Target in town had some in stock so I went and picked one up. And would you believe that when I was taking it out of the packaging at home I dropped and broke the glass lid? I was so annoyed. But yesterday I went back to Target and got another and I’m so so happy to finally have my two jars living peacefully beside one another.
I just put some extra measuring cups I had lying around in there as scoops. Meanwhile, I’ve been collecting various jars and other crap from around the house in anticipation of eventually getting shelves above the wood counter. See the giant glass jar whose lid I broke sitting in front of the window? I’m thinking of repurposing it as a terrarium.
What I’m really wanting now is to replace those broken miniblinds with bamboo shades, but I’m having a hard time finding two that match in the right sizes without spending a ton of money. I thought Lowes would cut some to size for me but it turns out that’s only the Levelor brand? So the search continues.
