This article in the Food Network’s online magazine caught my eye, and since I agree with 49 of the 50 recommendations, I’m sharing it as a public service.
Imagine how blissful it will feel to reach into decluttered cabinets!
It’s a good article; if you read it, let me know what you think.
Will I bite the bullet and do the recommended clean-out in my own kitchen? Maybe … I hope so. The Grill-Meister mutters comments about our orphaned plastic containers, which, like socks, never get lost as a pair. How does that happen? Although he certainly isn’t blameless here – when we married in 2008, I cleaned out the pantry and found a giant jar of ground cinnamon that expired in 1994. Yup. And I need to curb my condiment habit, because we just can’t consume them as quickly as I collect them.
The one recommendation I don’t agree with: getting rid of unused cookbooks. Just because I haven’t used one yet, doesn’t mean I never will!
