Here’s a simple solution for packets of dry goods in your pantry: Store them together in an index card file.
I store packets of yeast in a 3×5 card file and larger packets of taco and stew seasonings in a 4×6 card file. These card files keep small packets from getting lost behind boxes of pasta and cereal and they make inventory simple when creating grocery lists.
An index card file is just a simple, inexpensive way to keep clutter at bay in your pantry!
