If you throw away spoiled foods from the fridge regularly, I'm sure things are not so optimistic with condiments, preserves, and spices. Please keep in mind that bulk foods have an expiration date as well. Check all pasta, cereal, canned goods, and spices, ruthlessly throw out those whose expiration date is over the line. You'll save space and your health.Excess utensils.
In my experience, almost every kitchen has far more utensils than the occupants of the home needs. Look at the first part of the checklist, that's precisely how many utensils you need. I know, I know, dishes can last forever, as long as they don't break, but the truth is dinnerware, just like other things, can get old, boring, and out of style.
Unnecessary kitchen appliances.
- Pick one versatile set that you like, give the rest to those in need or throw it away.
- I recommend betting on white solid-colored tableware. It always looks stylish and goes with any decor element.
Tell me, do you honestly use that steamer that takes up half the kitchen cabinet? If you take a look, you surely have a toaster, waffle maker, or bread maker in your pantry that's been idle for years. My advice; free yourself and your kitchen from their presence, sell them at a thrift store or give them to good hands and forget about them.Unloved gifts.
Even expensive gifts don't always become favorites, and that's okay. The taste of the third cousin’s aunt who gave you a set of pots and pans doesn't have to be the same as yours. Kitchen space is too valuable to occupy with unnecessary and ugly things.
That's it. Have a successful inventory!
