Sugar and Spice and everything EXPIRED
Today's Organizing Challenge: The Spices
OK...so I don't cook a lot at my house. I do cook at my parents house, thought. They have a big, nice kitchen! So it was no surprise to me that almost all of my spices were expired. The cabinet itself wasn't too bad...just those dates screaming at me!
So I took everything out, checked ALL dates and wiped it down. I took an 'emptied out' picture and accidentally erased it...sorry! Sadly, I tossed out 8 jars of spices that were expired which goes to show I need to organize and go through these cabinets more than every 4 years!
I was able to keep a few spices that we use a lot and were not expired: mostly cinnamon! The stainless steel bowl is full of all my baking things... cupcake papers, sprinkles, birthday candles, etc.
I have said this before and I'll say it again... I was inspired to do this 21 Day Challenge (see button on side bar) and am so thrilled to see so many friends who were inspired be me to Get Organized! My friend Auburn shared with me all the rooms she has organized! And yesterday, I helped a friend organize her craft room (we were busy and I forgot to take pictures!)
Yea, it's been a lot of work but we are more than 1/2 way through now! And, man, is my place looking good!!
By the way...after the 21 days are over, I will still share organizing tips but really want to get into the DIYing and money saving ideas as well!! Can't wait!!
