As the seasons change, so do we. In the summer, we may be outside more and neglect the things and the “stuff” in our lives that accumulates. Par example: letting old things in our pantry breed and produce for over four seasons. Possibly, it’s time to clear out your pantry.
Clear Out and Organize
Get everything out of your pantry so you can see what you have and then start sorting. Separate items into these four categories:
- Daily used items
- Items less frequently used
- Empty bottles to recycle
- Unopened items that can be donated
- Science like experiments — TRASH
Vacuum any crumbs off of shelves and then wipe down each shelf with a damp cloth and let dry before reloading.
