Pantry Cleanup

Here is my tackle for the day. I really need to clean out my pantry and do some organizing. Since Summer break has started we have not kept good inventory of what is in the pantry or freezer. The last few trips to the store have not been added to the sheets and the last few meals have not been subtracted.

I am hoping today (if I can ever make time) that I can go through everything, organize and retype the sheets. Then I will have to retrain the family to mark the sheets when they take something out or add something to the stash!

If you want to know more about my system you can read about it here. The bottom 2 articles talk about my inventory sheets and how I organize my stockpile.

  1. What is your opinion?! I had bought several Kraft Mayo from Target recently stocking up. Well only to notice today that the date says Best Used by August 09. How long if unopened do you think they are good for?

  2. Nice looking pantry! We used to have one that was loaded like that but now its just me and the man most of the time so we don't need as much stuff. We still have a nice supply, though, for two people.

    Last night I joined a 'clean the fridge' challenge and might just go clean the pantry this afternoon. :)

  3. great loioking pantry. It reminds me that I need to clean up mine too :)

  4. Melinda,
    Mayo makes me nervous. I wouldn't let it go much longer after the expiration date. I have that problem with all the dressing I bought. I will be doing lots of marinating in dressing! You could makes dressings with mayo or use it in cole slaw.
