Cleaning and Decluttering the Pantry.

Woot! It is the annual January Cure.

We started with buying flowers (or a plant or bowl of fruit) on Friday and washing all the floors on the weekend. I didn't quite get all the floors done--but I plan to keep at it until they are done properly.

Today's assignment was to clear out and clean the pantry.

I really did not think I had time for this, today.

But I set the timer and tackled it with a cloth and a bucket of hot water, one cubby at a time.

On the thread at AT, I'd said the oldest thing I found was an unopened bag of rye flour from 2007.

Turns out, no.

Going through my little toss bag while writing up this post, I found a can of vegetable broth with a date stamped on the top.

April 2004.


Here is my small pile of donations:

After 30 minutes I had just one cubby left to do--so I did it and called it a day.

I was motivated to keep going, to keep cleaning, but I had to go to work.
Oh well.

Nice work! And once again you've encouraged me! :) I cleaned my floors and wrote a huge project list. Yesterday I just didn't feel like tackling the "pantry" thinking it was fine as is. Since I already have an outbox maybe tonight I will indeed go through the pantry!

Yes, i am curing! This is my 3rd January cure. Last year I began a notebook with the Cure and have used it as a place to ducument my lists and accomplishments in my home. Its fun to compare this year's list with last year's. The last week in December I was on anbig push to finish up as much as possible on my 2015 project lists before I made a new one! (I'm guessing I lrearned about Apt Therapy from your sidebar!)

I finished cleaning my pantry in less than an hour! Woo hoo!
