Does your pantry look like this?!

I was writing my grocery shopping list (Thanksgiving IS this Thursday) and thought I would see what I had on hand. I walked over to my pantry and when I opened the door … this is the sight that I was greeted with! Who ransacked my pantry? Please say that yours sometimes looks like mine!

If you have a weak stomach, you may want to look away 🙂 (I left the picture large so you could experience the messiness to it’s fullness)

I brought out the trash can, sponge, kitchen cleaner, and started to purge. I hate to even admit this but … I had something from 2007 in there. All expired food ended up in the trash and then each shelf was emptied  and cleaned before it was restocked.

I filled a tall kitchen trash can. Seriously, I am embarrassed. Isn’t it crazy how things can just get pushed in the back and if it isn’t organized … you don’t see everything in there!

Case in point? I have found three jars of peanut butter!!! (2nd shelf down … 2 jars of Jif and 1 of Skippy. I am a Jif girl. Mr Man must be a Skippy guy.)

An hour, a Christmas movie …

and a trash can is all it took to go from this … to this!

Now I have to run and get that Thanksgiving shopping done!

Happy Thanksgiving to you and the family and friends you will be with!

    I am happy to know that Jiff and Skippy are able to happily live in wedded bliss together.

    They are living together quite nicely! Of course, they didn’t know each other existed until I cleaned! LOL Stay tuned!

    LOL, I bet you would! You have a very small kitchen! Especially for someone who can cook like you do!!!!
