It’s Day #5 of the 500 Things Decluttering Challenge… Hi! My name is Crystal and apparently I’m a spice hoarder!!
Today’s project for the #500Things #Decluttering Challenge was to go through your pantry and get rid of 25 items.
Our pantry didn’t need much decluttering, but 2 days ago, when I had done a quick decluttering of our kitchen cupboards, I discovered that our Spice Cupboard was kind of out of control!
I often get sent spices from companies, Jesse has bought a number of different spices this year… And, gulp, I even have some spices in there that we got as wedding presents — 13 years ago!!! Yikes!
Today: I went through all of them, checked dates, threw out all the expired items, combined the jars of non-expired duplicates, got the bags of flour and sugar dumped into the canisters they are supposed to go in, and wiped down the cupboard and reorganized it.
Today’s total: 26 things decluttered
Total for the entire challenge: 224 items so far!
I’m keeping a running total of all my items decluttered during this challenge as I thought it would be fun to not only do Daily Totals but also Overall Totals.
How many items did YOU declutter today?? Leave a comment and let us know.
