My definition of purge – sell, donate, repurpose or throw away items as you see fit


Decluttering Header Task 8

Expired Foods

Last week on facebook I gave everybody the task to look through their spices and purge any that are out of date, it surprised quite a few with unexpected and very past due dates.  Sometimes we just don’t realise that items have been sitting in the pantry for so long.  There are quite a few food products that are still edible past this date, in this case use the date as a guide.  But when you see the date is past 2 years ago, it would be safe to say it’s time to be purged.

Todays task is to:

Look through the products in your fridge and pantry and purge the items that are too far out of date

What items have you found that are out of date?

I would like to see a photo of your purge pile on Instagram, use the hashtag #declutter52

Organised Pantry Inspiration

I have shared a few posts over the years on my pantry, this is how it was originally organised.

And then I gave it a little makeover, see the video of the makeover here

I’m still not completely happy with it and will soon be giving it another rearrange 🙂
