This week was a mess! I tackled my pantry. It was so disorganized that I did not know what food I had and what I did not have. After pulling everything from the pantry and placing it on my clean table I was stunned! What a mess. I wiped down all the shelves and turned it. I had decided to place the back of it towards my desk instead of lined up with it. Now came the task of replacing and tossing. I sometimes buy extra when it is marked down. So I have lots of pasta, for 3 pound boxes at 35 cents a box, 10 boxes hot cocoa @ 50 cents a box,4 boxes lasagna noodles @ 40 cents a box, four 5 pound bags of bread flour @ 50 cents, five double cans of pumpkin @ 50 cents a can, 12 boxes of Hamburger Helper @ $1 a box. That is all I have left from my big buys. Yes I remember the prices. It is a quirk that I have, being able to remember stuff like that. I tried to place everything on shelves with similar type items, baking stuff together, pasta, beans and rice, can goods, box goods etc. On the bottom shelf is my ice cream maker, light bulbs and energy drinks.
I like doing this because I can see what I have and what I need.
One of the things that got tossed was paper, loots of paper. I shredded 3 full bins of paper in my shredder! I told you I have the tendency to save it. There were bills(paid ones LOL) from 2003! I have not had this cabinet that long!
The back of the cabinet will be a minor tackle. I still have to get what I need. I am going to put cork tiles and a dry erase board on it. This will be a new "wall" for my desk.
