Welcome to Day 4! Yesterday we started getting organized with the Freezer & Refrigerator. Our assignment today is to organize the Pantry.

 

Pantry Before & After

 

Today’s assignment:
Organizing the Pantry

Time to tackle that pantry. Here is what to do:

A. Just like yesterday clear your kitchen table, counters, and island {if applicable} before begining so you have plenty of room to work with.

B. Take out all the food from your pantry shelves.  As you remove the food put similar items together. As you go, toss out any items that might have expired. (Note: For your pantry and fridge – Ensure all OPEN items are in a separate section.)

C. Clean the cleared shelves.

D. Use this food inventory worksheet to write down everything you have in your pantry. Write down each item and sort them by category type listing the quantity for each item. Once inventoried, organize and put your items back into your freezer based on similar food categories. (Note: For your pantry and fridge – Make it a practice NOT to open a new package until the old one is completely finished!)

Once you’re done here’s some discussion questions:

So when was the last time you cleaned out your pantry?  Were you surprised by how much food you had? How much food did you end up throwing out?
