Today, I hit the pantry cupboards & oy vey… I had a lot of baking stuff way past the expiry date. The one thing I hate to waste is food, as I know there are so many out there who go without. I am disgusted with myself during moments like this. I am putting forth an effort to eat what I buy and brown bag my lunches for work in an attempt to cut down on that latte factor where $5 to $12 here and there adds up.
Today’s purge is mostly expired pantry items, but a couple of dust collectors too:
2. George Forman grill
3. Expired sun dried tomatos
4. Expired oats
5. Expired flour
6. Expired coconut
7. Expired slivered almonds
8. Hard as a rock brown sugar
9. Old as dirt icing sugar
10. Mystery jar of some powder
11. Tin of cranberry jelly (not expired, but I like sauce not jelly)
12. Bakers chocolate turning white
13. True lime powder
14. A German music box empty cookie tin
The cranberry jelly and other items which are not expired food will be given to good will/food bank.
Have you checked your pantry lately for food which has been pushed to the back and forgotten?
We are now at a total of 105 items either disposed of or given away. It feels good to declutter and to go through my stuff each day to see what else I can purge from my life to make more space for the stuff I truly love.
