IT’S getting pretty desperate in the blogging stakes when you’re picking up the camera to photograph the washing up. Hey, don’t judge me. At least I have clean dishes.

As it was I was giving my new op-shop buys a scrub. The Pyrex dish was $6 – probably because it needed a good wash. I am figuring a curry was the last dish served from it. I don’t have a lot of Pyrex. I could have but mostly I opt to leave it in op shops for diehard fans. If I did suddenly go wild for Pyrex I’d be sure to add my pictures to The Pyrex Collective, found by Thrifted Treasure

The old Bushells coffee jars were $1 each. I thought they were Tang jars – who remembers Tang - but on reaching back into my archive of product packaging I think I do recall the Bushells brand having the same coloured orange-topped jars. Almost all my pantry containers are large glass coffee jars. It’s a shame they don’t come like that anymore. I know it’s all about reducing the freight weight but those jars sure encouraged customer loyalty. You just had to keep drinking the stuff so you could house the bread crumbs, flours, coconut, sugar ... I could go on.

What’s your pantry storage system?

  3. Ah pyrex! Love that pattern. My pantry storage system is a mix of thrifted Tupperware, Brabantia and random tins.

  4. Oh show me where the pyrex are in the Op Shops!! I hardly ever see them. I have a huge jar collection growing below my sink but they are mainly pasta sauce jars. My pantry storage is pretty lame - mostly a peg to hold the bag together.

  5. LOVE that blue on the Pyrex!
    Haven't seen one in that colour before! If you want to get rid of it someday, I volunteer to give it a good home.
    I never have any luck with them in my op shops. Those that I like are always without their glass covers. :(

  6. I'm starting to get a collection of baby formula tins in my pantry, but they are coming in handy for my house painting jobs.

  7. I use Moccona glass coffee jars too. I also have some lovely big glass jars with metal lids from the 1940s and 1950s. There's also the odd packet with a peg attached!
