I started by taking all of the contents out of the pantry. I wiped down all of the shelves and admired the emptiness. I then decided to take my own advice and added a shelf to my pantry, making better storage inside of it.
I realized after I was ready to put everything back in that I’m out of label tape for my label maker. Ugh. So I didn’t relabel anything but it is all organized and decluttered. I simplified the storage by combining several bulk items into one container (such as the macaroni that I bought at Sam’s club. I had 4 bags of macaroni that were combined to fit into one container.)
I think what I was most proud of was that I did not have anything that was expired inside! That’s a first for me so by decluttering in December, I did save some money by using up the close to expiring items. (Although I have a bunch of yeast that has an expiration date in the beginning of May so I better get to baking!)
In case you have missed any days in this series, here they are! (Don’t worry you can jump in right where we are in the series and go back later if you want to catch up or just finish out what we’re working on with us! I’m so happy that you are joining us in organizing and decluttering your home!)
