Challenge for this week:

De-clutter and tidy your Pantry!

It doesn’t require skills to organize a pantry closet for some of us that is. 🙂

Here are some steps you can use to de-clutter and arrange a tidy clean pantry:

1) Take out all the items from the pantry and lay out on a table or counter top even the  floor. Please make sure to get rid of stuff that has expired.

2) Clean the shelves.

3) Now sort out your snacks to one group, spices in another group, cereals, canned goods, pasta, and con’t from there.

4) Keep all snacks, spices, cereals, canned goods, pasta each on it’s own shelf. Snacks can go on lower shelf, canned goods on the 2nd shelf and so one. Items that are often used keep right in front. Makes sense?
