Raise your hand if you have a pantry full of stuff, and complain there’s never anything to eat. Much like a closet full of clothes and nothing to wear, this can be a serious source of stress for many people. So together, we’re going to find out if you need a pantry overhaul or not.
Go to your pantry and open the door.
Have a look around at everything on your shelves.
And let me ask you:
-What turns you on in your pantry?
-What makes your mouth water?
-What do you use often?
-What makes your tummy rumble just thinking about it?
Now let me ask you:
-Are you standing there not knowing what to make with what you have?
-Are you bored to death with everything you’re looking at?
-Are the shelves full, but every night and day is still a struggle to come up with new ideas?
-Is pleasing everyone in the family getting to be too hard?
Trust me, I have days where I too stand there with my hands on my hips and don’t know what to make, even with a fridge and pantry fully stocked… but I’ve got some great tips and ideas that’ll help you out.
Throw away/Recycle/Donate anything that you don’t use
Have 50 cans of baked beans that you bought on sale 5 years ago? Have those big plastic tubs filled with flour? Spices that you’ve had so long they’ve gone rock hard?
You know what to do.
These things are taking up valuable shelf real estate, and as I always say, you need to make space to welcome in the NEW in your life.
