Tackle The Pantry – Day 15

Congratulations, you are well past the half way mark in this series!  Well done!  Are you loving your kitchen’s new lean look?  Yes, me too!

20 HomesteadingToday we focus on the pantry where you store food.  For folks who live in tiny houses, this isn’t a big deal – the collection is very small.  But if you asked me to do this 10 years ago when I lived in the big house on the golf course – cleaning out my pantry would have taken more than a day because my pantry was huge.  No matter where you are or how much stuff is in your food collection, taking the time to clean it out is an excellent idea and a very rewarding task.  Let’s tackle it together.

Remember to donate and recycle.  Plus, everything you put in the donate box today is fair game to be used this weekend.  But if you don’t use these foods this weekend then away they go.  There is no point in laboring the point.  Donate, and in some cases you may choose to compost the contents and recycle the container.  A clean organized pantry awaits.  You can do it, I know you can.

I’m Carmen Shenk, the Tiny House Foodie, reminding you that we can #LiveTiny #EmbraceSimplicity and still #EatWell.  Thanks for watching, I really appreciate it!29c45-1a2bcarmen

Donating & Selling – Day 4

Good morning everyone and welcome to day 4 of the Right-Sizing your Kitchen Video Series.  Today we talk about selling, donating, and giving away the things in your home that no longer serve a purpose.  What is the charity in your area that supports a cause that matters to you?  What kinds of donations do they accept?  What other options do you have that are unique to your area and your values?  How can you use your extra stuff to support these missions in your community?  Prepare a few boxes for the things you no longer need and make a plan now to deliver those items to the charity of your choice.  I’d love to hear how it’s going with you, please leave a comment.  29c45-1a2bcarmen
