This weekend, I took time to organize some of my cabinets. I had over 6 items that were expired as far back as May 2020. I tend to lose track of the items in the cabinets because I would stack new items in front versus grabbing from the back because it's hard to reach without a step stool.
Instead, I now typed up a Google Document to keep track of the pantry inventory on quantity, item, and expiration dates then used painters tape and taped it behind the cabinet door. Don't forget to save the document so you can edit/or make adjustments in the future. I also left two additional lines in each category if I need to add items in it.
This way you will know your inventory for that specific cabinet.
Keeping a list of your pantry staples is a great way to know if you are low on anything. This is a page about organize your pantry with an inventory list.
