During (and actually afterward, in the dust) a lot of our kitchen storage containers were ruined and despite several attempts, were unsalvageable. So I’ve recently been on the hunt for good quality storage containers for the likes of sugar, flour and chia seeds etc. but on a tiny budget.Enter my Poundland pastel discoveries. I nipped in the other day to pick up some cleaning cloths and found my way over to their kitchenware aisle. I’ve written about the Jane Asher at Poundland range before and I’m pleased to say the products I bought last year have lasted really well over the past 9 months or so. I’d either forgotten or it has been a recent addition to this line but I found some great storage containers which represent great value. Each pack comes with two containers (stacked inside each other) and contain 2 measuring spoons (1tbsp and 1/2tbsp), you can choose from pastel shades of mint, pink, blue, lilac and I think perhaps yellow. They aren’t huge containers but they happily hold the likes of a tub of cocoa and my cacao nibs, which were previously forever falling out of their packet and littering our cupboards which delicious scented rabbit droppings.
I’m astounded at the quality of these containers. The lids stay on tight (often not the case with the cheaper end of kitchen storage tubs), they fair well in the dishwasher and freezer (I froze some pizza dough in one) and they are sturdy and robust enough that they don’t split when a small child chucks them across your kitchen. I can never have too many measuring spoons, so the set which comes inside each package is a welcome addition.
I can’t recommend these enough and as soon as I find my label maker (we are still unpacking) my new kitchen cupboards will be nicely organised.
