Use a 2 Quart Pitcher for Sugar

I came in from the store having bought sugar on sale, and was looking for another cannister to put it in when I spied the new 2 quart lidded pitcher I had picked up at the dollar store the day before. Sure enough - the pitcher makes a great and handy container for sugar. A 4 lb bag fills it to the top and the slotted spout allows me to pour the sugar just easily enough for measuring - A 2 quart or less size is about as heavy as I would go depending on the strength of the lid and the handle - it's easy to grip,and no spills. I was tickled pink!

My family loves dill pickles. I had an abundance of gallon jars. I made a set of canisters to hold my sugars, flours and such. My kitchen is "purple', with a grape motif. Not my idea the house is a rental. Everybody loves it. I painted grapes on my jars.

Everyone who sees them ask me to paint some for them. Most canister sets are graduated and I don't use the small ones. The gallon jars work great. I spray paint the lids.
