If you're short on kitchen space, you might be dodging falling cereal boxes every time you open your packed cabinets and pantry. Boxes of dry goods can take up a lot of room, especially when each of them only has a few scoops of whatever is left.
How to fix it: Invest in some plastic canisters. You can find them on the cheap, and you won't believe how much a neat row of matching containers can improve the look of things. Best of all, a good plastic jar will keep the nastier insects and other pests from chewing and sneaking into cardboard boxes to get at all your goodies.
