If the contents of your kitchen pantry make you want to let out a giant sigh and slam the doors shut, it may be time for an upgrade. Reorganizing doesn’t need to be overwhelming, though — there’s a quick, satisfying way to declutter items while optimizing space. All you need are a few containers, and Dollar Tree’s modern glass jars with stainless steel lids are clear winners. 

These versatile containers come in two sizes: a tall, narrow jar (33.8 fluid ounces) perfect for pasta, grains, or baking ingredients, and a short, round jar (29.8 fluid ounces) ideal for nuts, beans, spices, or coffee grounds. With each priced at Dollar Tree’s signature $1.25, it only makes sense to snag a few from store shelves (or online!). 

The jars are smooth and transparent, ready to be labeled for all your pantry, countertop, and coffee bar staples. Both varieties have flat, shiny lids that allow for stable and stylish stacking. (It’s worth noting that Dollar Tree doesn’t specifically denote the jars as food-safe glass, so use at your own risk — or store non-edible items in them.)

“The glass jars with these stainless steel lids are amazing,” wrote one happy customer in a review. “Look great in my pantry and display my dry goods beautifully. Great buy!” Another reviewer shared, “I bought them by the dozens to organize my pantry. Love it! Looks very expensive, an awesome deal for the savvy shopper.”

Shoppers have also been loving the shorter jars for meal prep — they use them to portion out salads, overnight oats, and leftovers for the week ahead. Video creator Teonna Annette (@teonnaannette) describes the jars as “aesthetically pleasing” and told an interested viewer, “Girl, run! The quality of these jars 🤌🏽💋.” 

When cleaning the jars, shoppers recommend thoroughly wiping out any liquid that may seep under the lids or applying an oil-based protectant in advance to prevent rusting. Teonna says placing the lids face-down in her dishwasher and dabbing away excess water has worked like a charm. 

Outside of food, the jars can be used for storage all around the home to hold bathroom necessities, arts and craft supplies, vanity products, and a whole lot more. You could also opt to forego the lid and use the jar as a vase!

Love These Jars? Then You’ll Also Love …

Your excitement might not be contained, but your kitchen must-haves on the other hand? Fully secured.
