A weekly series called “If You Only Do One Thing”. This is designed to be a task that will take roughly 10 minutes and can be done with materials you have at home.
We want this to be something quick to do, but which will give you a little feeling of accomplishment all week long.
If you only do one thing: remove and toss 5 things from your pantry.
It’s amazing how crowded our pantry can become. Big or small, the stuff just expands to fit the room allotted. Let’s make some space in there.
Toss anything that’s been there for too long or that you just know you’re not going to use. That half-bag of marshmallows from last Christmas? Toss! Beans from 2010? Outta there! (If you have several items that are still fresh, consider donating to a local food pantry.)
Done in 2 minutes? Bonus points for doing another 5 items.
Want to get creative? Grab a few things from your pantry and make a pasta salad or a quick batch of cookies. Use some of that stuff for the purpose for which it was intended.
You’re done. You sexy thing.
