I keep measuring tools, cups and spoons in many containers. Many foods are used in specific amounts often So I have 1/4 cup measure in my oat bran. 2 tablespoon in m flax seed. I tablespoon in my grape nuts. I bought inexpensive cups and spoons and instead of cluttering the drawers I open the lid use the tool and throw it back in for the next time you want to use that dry food again. no need to wash till it gets wet. Make certain the utensil is dry before you drop it back in to the glass jar.
I use glass jars so I see how much is in the jar and after a given level I add the new supply to the grocery list. Then I can shop bulk buying stores. I like to add the date of the product so you know how long you have had it. Pat in Maine.
