You know the nursery rhyme right?
Well if her cupboard is bare our food cupboard is completely the opposite!
Are you ready?
(cringe!!! I had to resist the urge to have a tidy before I took this photo, but I want to share the truth!)
I know one might not naturally think of food as clutter (after all we need it don't we?) but when you don't use your 'store cupboard' foods (or can't because they are so far out of date!) that is exactly what it is!
James and I don't shop regularly, we work shifts so aren't always around to do a proper food shop. We usually buy a few days meals at a time depending on who is at home. This never works out, of course, as we will forget what was intended to go with what and end up not using everything we have bought.
These unused foods either sit forgotten of get thrown away, out of date, when the next lot of
badly planned shopping gets put away.
As part of my decluttering challenge I have decided to take control of the situation and set myself the task of taking stock and using up the food we have stored in our larder and freezer.
Obviously I will have to buy a few fresh ingredients and the odd item needed to complete a meal but I intend to use mainly ingredients we already have.
I will, of course, share my endeavours with you next week!
How long do you think it will all last!
Lots of Love xxxx
