Weekend Assignment: Do You Really Know...

Before we get started on today's post, I'd like to thank Jean M. for her generous donation and her sweet note of encouragement. My cup surely runneth over with thanfulness for those who support this site both financially and with encouragment. You are making a difference in my life.  Thank you!

Our weekend assignment is to take a honest look at our pantries and answer the following question ...

Do I really know what's in my pantry?

Is it a jumbled mess or can you get a good idea of what you have with just a quick glance?

Why is knowing what you have in your pantry important?  Think about this, your answer could mean changes are needed in your pantry in order for it to be a help instead of a hindrance!

  1. Last week I would have had to say no but a few days ago I reorganized all the canned goods so I do feel like I know what we have. There were some surprises and I am glad to know what is there now. It is easy to let food go to waste when I don't keep a handle on that so this is a great reminder post today. Thanks!

    1. Lana, yes, it is easy to let things get away from you and this is as much of a reminder to me as it is to my readers!

  2. Patsy,
    Oh yes I know what's in pantry. It is a jumbled mess at the moment while we're working on the new one, but I know what I have and continue to add something each week. One of the things that I am leery about keeping for very long is baby formula. So if an emergency situation would come along where an infant needed that we would have to make a homemade version. Knowing what you have is important because you can keep up easily with what you need to stock up on and also see what you have that your not using and your family just doesn't care for.

    1. Vicky, I can't wait to see your new pantry! I didn't think about the shelf life of baby formula, that's a good tip for those who have wee ones to consider. I agree completely on why it's important to know what you have in your pantry ... great comment!

  3. Honestly my pantry is a mess right now. My husband and son dig around in there looking for who knows what. It drives me crazy and in the next week that is my goal to clean it back up so I know what I need and what I don't need. Paula in Kansas

  4. If you has asked me yesterday morning if I knew what was in my pantry my answer would have been a definite yes. However yesterday I decided I would use the pink Himalayan Salt I had to made some bath salts for a gift. I went to wear I thought the salts were. Nope. I checked the rest of that shelf. Nope. I hunted for quite some time. I've had another look this morning and I cannot find the bag of salt. So I obviously don't really know what I have or where it is.

  5. Just before you put up this post, I spent a good hour working in our pantry. I found several things I thought we were out of and saw just how many of other things we have. Like 7 kinds of store bought cookies 😱 50+ cans of assorted beans and 80ish cans of peaches.
    Oh, and I found your pink salt in my pantry because I was sure we were out but, nope, I've got almost a quart,

  7. Pantries are organized. It's the freezer (big chest type) that tends to get all jumbled up after a while.

    1. Kris, I agree the freezer is always an issue!

  8. Yes because my pantry is in many different places. Over the frig is cake and cookie decorating supplies. Under the sink I have cases of canned food. In one very deep cupboard I have dry goods and oils and dried spices and the list goes
    on. I do not have a nice big area to store food so you will find it in creative places in my house. This is different for me but we know were things go and I am happy to have a pantry.

    1. Patti, your pantry sounds like mine, we don't have a nice big area either, but we manage pretty well with what we've got!
