Step 2: Plan and Measure: Now that everything has been removed and you have a blank canvas, start to make a list of your pantry staples you would like to store in OXO Containers. Examples: Pasta, Rice, Weet-Bix, Cereal, Nuts, Sugar etc.
Measure up your space and work out exactly how many OXO Containers can fit. Keep in mind when organising your space you can use a variety of OXO Pop like the Rectangle Range, Square Range and as well as the Slim Rectangle Range.
