My goals from last week were to clean and organize my spice cupboard and my pantry closet which I did today. Behold:
Old, dirty, unorganized spice cupboard:
Here’s what I did:
2. Wash the Rubbermaid turntables:
I also wanted to use up some more of the food in my freezer – I used all of the egg roll wrappers by making a huge batch of egg rolls. I had hoped to have extra for the freezer, but someone ate them for breakfast (ahem) and lunch today – so out of the huge batch I made, I only have 4 left. Guess they were good.
My list is growing for things I will need to replenish once this challenge is over. I am out of oil. In fact, I had none for the bread I baked today so I improvised and used apple sauce. And it worked! The bread’s delicious – and this is a great way to use up apple sauce since I normally find half a moldy jar in the back of the fridge. Gonna have to remember that.
I also cleaned out my pantry cupboards. I’m embarrassed to show you this picture because it seems somewhat weird to have this combo in the bathroom. We live in a pretty small house right now and the previous owners made good use of all available space. While I dislike the location and look of these cupboards, they are pretty functional.
I’d love to make these cupboards prettier, but my husband won’t let me paint them. Spoil sport. Any ideas?
And that’s my week. Have you done any cleaning/organizing lately? And now I am off to find the rest of the house because it’s in dire shape…
Enjoy your weekend!
