I decided to tackle that spice rack today. It actually is in pretty good shape. Call me obsessive/compulsive, but I keep it in alphabetical order (pretty much); since I cook/bake a lot, I use most of the spices I have a lot as well. That said, I know I have a couple items that I hardly, if ever, use. Those will go.
Look any different? Yeah, I know… not really. BUT – it is all re-alphabetized, I did get rid of a few old spices and put some spices I bought at the farmers market in bottles from plastic baggies.
Then… since I was on such a productive streak, decided to clean another shelf in the pantry… but quickly realized, if I was going to clean one, I was going to have to clean them all. Why? Well, because so much wasn’t even on the right shelf (yes, baking items have a baking shelf, etc.). I jumped in so fast on this one that I didn’t get a before picture.
I did get rid of some stuff from the pantry. Especially the things that were tucked way in the corners, and not used in so long they had WAY expired! (Yikes!)
