What are your low carb staples?

I'm cleaning out my pantry, fridge, and freezer, and reorganizing for a low carb life. I'm going to use glass canisters with lids for Carbquik, Splenda, pecans, walnuts, and a few other items. I'm looking for ideas to organize my pantry as well as creating a staple list for low carb cooking? Can you add your suggestions?

My Staples:

Carbquik
Splenda
Pecans
Walnuts
Real bacon bits
Ranch dressing mix
Rotel
Green beans
Pumpkin
Teas
Sea Salt
Morton's Lite Salt
Pepper
Onion Powder
Garlic Powder
Garlic Salt
Seasoning Salt
Paprika
EVOO
Coconut Oil
Jay Robb Protein Powder

Oh, and for pantry organizing I use a series of stackable "locking" plastic containers for dry goods, I think I got them from the container store.

I keep meat in my freezer by type in different grocery bags - one of chicken, one of beef, etc. When I get a good deal on bulk meat I split it up into ziplocs, then put it in its bag so I don't have to dig through the whole freezer to get what I want later. My spice drawer is an unholy mess... someday I want to make some of those cute little custom spice tins to organize them but it always seems like too much effort At least the stuff I use most often gravitates to the top.

Love the lists! I'm working on my list by category, so that I can purge and restock. Your lists are helping me think of things I've long forgotten about or never thought of. Awesome sauce!

@Furi I love the idea of a spice drawer. I've been trying to figure out a way to organize my spices. I was considering investing in the tins, but perhaps I'll get the ones that will fit in my junk drawer (which needs a clean out).

I bought a new freezer recently (after living with a 45 year old energy sucking freezer that finally (thank heavens ) died. My new freezer has dividers and sliding bins. It's great for organizing. Now to clean out and organizing the freezer section of my refrigerater!
