If you open my mother's spice cabinet, you will find that every jar, can, etc. is in alphabetical order.
If you go down into her basement, you'll find extra cereal, canned goods, etc. all logged in on a sheet. As she uses an item, she adjusts her list so her inventory is current.
Well, my mother is here.
Thursday, we had an intervention.
My pantry was the target.
Itwas way past needing one.
Who knew we had so many bottles of wine or bags of chips.
We filled at least 6 large plastic bags of pantry stuff.
Let's just say we threw away anything that expired prior to 2012.
Now, I can actually see ALL the food that's on the shelves. It's wonderful!
I told Mom not to lose her momentum - the basement is next!
