Day 14 – Summer 2018 Mins Game 

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:


1. Free Christmas ice cube tray

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.  

Peace & Love – Rachel
