Sprinkle School – How To Store Sprinkles

So on one hand, it’s totally rainbow colored awesomeness to have a collection of sprinkles.   On another hand, it can be a challenge to find a place to store all of those sweet little things.   You need to have a way to store all those pretty sprinkles.

A few years ago I realized that I used my sprinkles FAR more often than I ever used the fancy glasses and bowls that were taking up space in one of my cupboards, and thus the fancy glasses and bowls went to Goodwill and in their place went my sprinkles.   It’s not fancy or cute, but it works for me.

There are however so many fun and creative ways to store sprinkles though, much more interesting than my shoved in a cabinet method.  Let’s check out some of the great ways people around the web have been storing their sprinkle collections…

    I’m embarrassed to say I am a sprinkle hoarder…or at least I’m on the cusp. I NEED something…thanks for showing all the great ideas. Mine are not easy to get to, so I tend to not use all I have…which is ridiculous! OR, even worse…I buy more of something I already have plenty of because they are not in plain view. BIG SIGH. Doesn’t help that they last forever!. To make it worse, I am using up my bits of extra royal icing…making little dollops/flowers/etc…which then have to be packaged up and stored. Thankfully, my granddaughters thought the red Christmas flowers were delicious and ate an entire container as they were “decorating” Christmas cookies.

    I have a dedicated shelf where I store my sprinkles in glass jars. They make me happy to look at them so they are out in plain sight!!

    My sprinkles are stored in a rubber container with a lid, but I’ve far surpassed it so the rest are just stored here and there and everywhere! I need help!
