This week I tackled the cupboards in my Kitchen. I moved things around to make it easier on my knees and I also add a few new things just for more organization. I went through my spices and removed any spice container that was outdated. I always take a Sharpie pen and write the date I open and depending on the spice I write the expiration date on the bottom if the container does not have a date listed. If no date is listed on my bottle I refer to this website... click here.
Inside my spice cupboard, I taped a few charts. The far bottom on the right, I have a conversion chart for measurements, a chart for different types of meat, safe meat temperature cooking time, and oven temperature chart. To find a copy of it just click here. The other charts are charts regarding carbohydrates and other measurements for diabetics. I copied them from some handouts we received when we went to a diabetic fair.
I love the charts, especially the diabetic ones. I refer to them several times still.
The next change I did was with my pot lids. I was tired of the lids falling out and sometimes landing on my foot. I found lid organizers at K-Mart. I love them. Now my lids and baking trays are all organized.
If you are wondering what is between my pans, it is a piece of flannel. I place flannel in between each of my non-stick pans and pots to keep them from being scratched. This way they last longer. I also never wash them in the dishwasher because extreme heat ruins them as well.
Now my Kitchen is completely organized and I am so thrilled about it.
What did you tackle this week?
