Get Organized!


I am doing fine at remembering my own shopping bags these days, it was the produce bags I was always forgetting.  The other day I was feeling really bad every time I pulled another fresh plastic bag off the roll (one for onions, one for cilantro, one for apples… they sure add up!), and I decided to do something about it. So when I got home from the store, I tied several produce bags to the handles of my grocery totes, all ready for next time.  I now do this every time I get home from the store.


I like to cook ahead, which means I usually have lots of containers in the fridge, and it can get a bit overwhelming and frustrating trying to find what you’re looking for in there.  A couple of weeks ago I started labeling the front of each container.  We’ve found it so helpful that it’s really worth the tiny bit of extra time it takes.

  1. It also helps to date it. I try to date any open jars such as spagetti sauce or containers like chicken broth as to when I opened it. I posted on organization today too.

  2. Reblogged this on Kristin's Favorite Recipes.
