i resolve to . . . organize my pantry!

One of the biggies on my list of resolutions is to get my closets and pantry organized.  Here are a few of their tips, some coupons, and more to help if this is one of the items on your resolution to-do list too!

Rubbermaid suggests the first step to take in organizing your pantry is to clear everything out. Then check expiration dates and toss foods that are past their prime. Once the pantry is empty wash down the shelves with soap and water and wipe them dry.  Ahh, fresh starts.  I love that feeling - even if it is just a drawer, a closet, or a pantry.  It feels good!

For a fantastic list for keeping a perpetual pantry check out Flylady.  I LOVE Flylady!  She is the queen of decluttering, organizing, and cleaning tips, helping break down seemingly arduous and grueling tasks to bite size bits so you can tackle them easily.
