I’m not sure if it’s the pregnancy hormones, the end of summer frenzy or what but I spent a good hour yesterday cleaning out and organizing the pantry.
It’s something I’ve been meaning to do since our housemates moved out in June. They were lovely girls but, man, did they own a lot of condiments!
Now, since it’s just the two of us adults, we have a better shot at keeping things neat. I hope.
I also realized just how much food we have. I have a big bag of canned goods to donate to a local food bank since it’s stuff I’ll never use (I didn’t buy it- the ramifications of having housemates!). I also now have a good mental inventory of what we have so that I won’t buy double. Beans, for example, are something that is well stocked. I can stop buying cans, “just in case.”
Up next? Organizing the tupperware!
