Canisters. We love 'em. They allow us to buy a lot of our food in bulk, which cuts down on packaging and often (if we're careful consumers) promises a healthier product.

But sometimes canisters are a little unsightly and take up an inordinate amount of precious cupboard or counter space. So we've been on the hunt for good looking canisters. Here are our favorites, so far. Please do add your favorites in the comments.
