Staying organized means maintaining the system you have. So. . . let’s peak into your pantry again this week. Maintaining a good inventory of cooking and food supplies will allow you to cook meals for your family without running to the store. Let’s get started.
Day 1. Clear out one shelf of your pantry. Check expiration dates. Reorganize what you have with like items together.
Day 2. Do it again. One more shelf – one more organized space. Focus on putting the items that you use most often in the most convenient spaces.
Day 3. Continue this exercise until your finish the pantry. Locate items that you want your kids to have access to on a lower shelf.
Day 4. Do you have any extra space. Look at locating seldom used small appliances on the top shelf, if you have the space.
Day 5. How about your spices? look through them. Toss anything really old. Alphabetized them. Store them so you can read the small labels.
Are you ready to cook? Enjoy having a space that supports your efforts.
