Memorise Volume Coversions With A Helpful Graphic

If you're anything like me, you're doing a sad number of Google searches for things like "one gallon into pints" — while the garlic is quickly browning. This simple visualisation of gallons, quarts, pints and cups locks in such volume conversions.

Apartment Therapy's The Kitchn blog points us to this clever visualisation of how many of each major kitchen measurement fits inside one another. I found a big-enough graphic of the trick at a fifth grade maths wiki page, but there are likely better and more printer-friendly sizes out there. If you like the idea, of course, you're free to draw or Photoshop it yourself.

Got a better way of remembering how many of something goes into something else? Tell us your grandmother's little trick in the comments.
