I made the decision to make one of my new years resolutions, like you might have to buy a house and it took only 5 months to find it. But here we are.
So I am going to start with giving you some advise I have learned over the years, very simply and practical tips for your kitchen!
1) Don't Buy More FoodEven comfort food!!! This will save you money and keep you from buying things you may not need in the food department. If you need a gallon of milk that is one thing or a head of broccoli. But when you go shopping for food, shopping for the meal is harder than shopping for a few weeks so even if you try you are more likely to pick up more than you actually need. So keep it minimal.
2) Try to Use All the Food You Have in StockI keep stock for emergencies- should the power go out, etc etc.
Instead of having to lug that all the way to the new house, regardless if it is a mile or across country, it is a good idea to use what you have in your cupboards before moving. You bought it after all.
3) Go Through Each Drawer and Get Rid of What You Haven't Used in a YearSounds like, duh, "why would you have something you haven't used in over a year?" But believe it or not it is more common than you think. I just found a cast iron skillet which I love, that I haven't used in a while. I will keep that, but I will get rid of the two pitchers I haven't used in over a year. It takes up space I don't have!
