Habit: Clearing Out the Pantry

by StephBuckwalter on July 9, 2012

It’s a good idea to clear out your pantry twice year. A great time to do this is just before the holidays, and again six months later.


Remove the items you know your family won’t eat (why is there always something in there like that?) and donate it to a local food pantry. Don’t forget to add things from the pantry’s needed items list, too.

Once you’ve emptied the pantry, wipe everything down and restock. If you find you have a lot of food that tends to sit there, find menu items that will use up your stock. You can use websites like >>>> that let you enter the ingredients you have on hand, then will find recipes for you.
