I have my wonderful husband to thank for today’s #trashouttuesday post.
He obviously forgot what day it was and started this mess on Sunday night:
I was dying. Spices from 2008 and brown “brick”!!!!
Okay. So, ALL these spices were OLD:
These are seriously the faces I kept getting every time he would look up at me from his spice cleaning out mission.
Yep. There’s the trash can. Bu-bye old spices from 2008…
The rest of our cabinet where the spices go really needed some work.
As you can see those old spices were taking up a lot of valuable space, lol.
I successfully avoided the cabinet til tonight.
First step – take everything out.
That was a job. Geez.
Then I gathered several storage bins from around the house to use when putting items back.
Walmart has a FANTASTIC deal on those white bins. They range $2-$4 and are great for using inside cabinets and the pantry.
First, all the spices went into one bin all together that pulls out quickly where we can see everything we have at one time.
Then, I went on to the coffee. It all got it’s own bin as well.
By the way – this is the BEST COFFEE EVER:
You can find it online or at Publix. My forever favorite coffee.
The bakery items were already sorted and had their own shoebox that was working nicely, so they went right back to the top shelf.
Now on to the monster: TEA. I think I have a tea problem.
Someone please tell me why I’ve been wasting ALL MY CABINET SPACE FOR 10 YEARS by keeping all these tea boxes?????
Brian just started looking for dates and telling my tea was old (insert eye rolls).
Meanwhile, this made me happy, happy, happy!!
I had a few other boxes with tea and cocoa that fit into another bin and I had room, so I left them for now.
Time to put it all back in the cabinet.
This cabinet has never looked so amazing in all our years.
I mean, I’ve NEVER HAD ROOM WHERE TEA BOXES AREN’T FALLING OUT WHEN YOU OPEN THE DOOR!!!
Let’s all stop and do a happy tea dance right this very moment. Would you like some tea?? I have plenty. Obviously.
And I promise I won’t serve you the “old tea”…HA!
Take everything out.
Discard expired things – and spices.
Find baskets to make accessing regularly used items easier.
Put it all back together and smile.
