It’s Friday again. (Really.)
This week, I chose to focus on my pantry for five minutes.
The pantry I’d successfully ignored for more than five minutes. More than five months, probably.
I grabbed a trash bag, took some before photos, and started working.
Evidently, I have quite a thing for croutons. And I don’t have much recall that I’ve already purchased plenty of croutons.
(A good reason to do these five minutes of focus.)
I found cookie mix that expired BEFORE Christmas. Blergh. Which means they weren’t purchased for Christmas of ’16.
I threw away the last 1/4 teaspoon of honey that has crystallized. I broke open a brand new honey a while back, so the chances I’ll use up that tiny bit of hard-to-use honey are pretty much none.
I also ditched the dessert mix in a jar. Hubby steals the chocolate chips from such jars, and I’m not likely to get creative and figure out what to do with them sans chips.
I rearranged things, putting items on the shelves where I’d glance first if I was looking. I threw away expired stuff and flat-out-trash.
Five minutes later, it looked better.
Not amazing. Not organized. Definitely not wow.
I like better.
I’d love to your stories of better!
