Momma Olympics – Heart and Home Edition
The Kitchen Pantry
Cleanliness is very important. If you let kids make a total mess in the kitchen and then leave, you’re not really teaching them anything.
Organize the Kitchen Pantry Fast!
The kitchen pantry can either be a tool that helps with organized kitchen flow or it can be a place of mild stress that keeps us guessing and cursing as we make dinner each night.
Today we are going to tackle the kitchen pantry in three easy steps!
Grab a trash can and drag it to the pantry, toss out old stuff, questionable stuff. Donate what you will not use that would be serviceable to a homeless or people in need food pantry.
Take everything out and clean each shelf, make sure to dust first or it will just cause extra work. I use a microfiber cloth to dust and then a damp rag to clean finishing with a dry towel to buff. As long as you clean the pantry every couple of months or so this should be enough to do the trick.
Organize the shelves grouping like items together and placing small seasoning packets in a basket or bin so that do not get lost in the shuffle.
