I want to reorganize my pantry using those pretty clear square containers that can stack uniformly. But these OXO ones are really pricey. Are there any cheaper alternatives out there? That are just as strong and functional. I searched around on amazon, found some containers by a company called shazo for much less. Anyone heard of them or used them? Or know of an alternative brand to recommend?

I like the Sistema containers for pantry storage. I can usually find the sizes I need in Marshall’s/tj max/home goods.

They're functionally very similar, they just don't have the pop lid.

I bought containers made by a company called Tellfresh at the container store. They come in all different sizes and I like them better than OXO.

Empty Nescafé containers, just snip off the wrapping. Stack well. Line up nicely. Buy a pack of label stickers and walla!

Empty Quaker Oats containers for that rustic look. Again snip off paper. Cool sticker and line them up.

I have some sistema from Marshall’s. On mine you gave to open 2 tabs and fully take off the cover. I don’t love it.
I prefer ones where there is only one tab and the cover stays on.
When Macy’s has really good sales it can come out cheaper then Marshall’s.

I have prepworks progressive containers. Once got great deal at Costco. They can also be found at Marshall’s. It’s not a pop top but I like the containers better then sistema.
I don’t stack mine
