How to Purge Your Pantry Before the Move
We came across this great article from Real Simple that offers you ways to give your pantry a makeover:
Empty and Categorize
Remove everything out of your pantry and separate items into four categories.
- Items you use every day
- Items you use less frequently
- Unopened items that can be donated (Click here to find a local food bank nearest you)
- Expired or suspicious items to trash
Clean the Shelves
Vacuum any crumbs off the shelves and floor. Wipe down each shelf with a damp cloth and let dry before restocking the shelves.
Refill your pantry in organized zones utilizing sections (i.e. baking items, breakfast items, etc.)
