I. Evaluate your pantry

Evaluate your pantry

Before we dive into the fun world of organizing, let's take a moment to evaluate what we've got. 

No, we're not talking about evaluating our life choices (although that may be necessary after a particularly rough week). 

We're talking about evaluating our pantry items.

A: Start with a clean slate
That's right, clear out everything and give your pantry a good ol' fashioned scrubbing top to bottom.
It's like hitting the reset button on your pantry.
B: Now it's time to channel your inner Marie Kondo and declutter your pantry. 
Ask yourself, "Does this item make me happy?
If not, it's time to say "Thank you, next" and toss it. 
And let's be honest, that expired can of cream of mushroom soup isn't exactly making anyone's heart sing.

C: Take inventory of what's left. 
This step may require some detective work, but it's worth it. 
Take note of what you have and what you may need to purchase in the future. 
This will help you avoid those panicked last-minute trips to the grocery store. 

By following these steps, you'll be on your way to pantry organization greatness

Plus, you'll have a cleaner pantry and possibly even some items to donate to those in need. 

So let's get to it, pantry peeps!
