One of the most useful things of having a funnel week is that it allows you to buy in bulk. Meant people’s buy bulk and then leave it in the plastic bags, which both makes a mess but also that you tend to forget what you have and re-buy the same things when it’s not necessary.
First, always save containers for any product you buy in bulk. Then you also want to buy or empty spice jars and larger jars, such as spaghetti sauce jars or canning jars.
Now, you can purchase things you need in bulk in bulk without purchasing an entire jar or package.

Once have your supply of various bulk goods, use your funnel to pour them into labeled jars. For most dry goods, you only need to wipe down the funnel with a dry cloth. If your washn it with water, ensure it is perfectly dry before using again, as introducing moisture to dry goods can cause them to clump and go bad.
