Food storage containers for the pantry
Moving all your food to clear food storage containers sounds (and looks) great. But what do you do with all the oatmeal, pasta, sugar, etc that doesn't fit the container? Establish yet another pantry? Throw it away? I've never understood this.

I do this for spices, beans, specialty flours, grains, and rice. For items like honey and maple syrup whose containers need to be washed, I put the tape identifier on the top and wash the mason jar lid by hand. Then I put the jar with its labeled lid into a shopping bag for use when I go to the bulk store again. (I'm grateful that our best bulk food source - Simply Bulk in Longmont, for you Boulder County readers - is two blocks from our first-rate library, and a 2 minute drive from a fine, old-school butcher shop named, I'm not making this up, "Your Butcher Frank".) ;o)
How much of the ingredients do you need or comfortably use between shopping for their common sizes?
Then scale up two or three containers for the ones that need largest capacity, or scale down your shopping, or some balance between the two.
I highly recommend both products. Those, along with a couple dozen each of quart and pint mason jars, keep my pantry quite tidy. ;o)
