We’re having a garage sale soon. I’m a little nuts because I really don’t have a whole lot of time and energy to purge, purge, purge. But nevertheless, I’ve managed to declutter and remove “the stuff” from our house. And in the process, our house “lost some weight.”
(Sometimes I want to add the line “Manager of Stuff” to my resume.)
It feels so great to remove stuff from closets, out from under beds, and from the tops and depths of the kitchen cupboards.
Speaking of the cupboards…
(Okay, I did that on purpose!)
…from the cupboards, I decided to rid our kitchen of high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and hydrogenated oils. Above is what came out of the pantry. All baking products, many of which have been sitting up there for months. Now out they go…
…from the refrigerator, I plan to exchange the ketchup and jelly next week, after I buy some simply fruit spread and HFCS free ketchup. (I know, I know…I should just get rid of it all now, but the children might plan a mutiny if I remove 2 of their favorite condiments without warning.)
I was not only inspired by the garage sale and overall “house purging,” but also by Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution. If you haven’t watched, you should!
How about you?!? Are you ready and willing to rid your pantry of HFCS and hydrogenated oils?! Have you done any spring cleaning and organization in your kitchen yet?
