(I have used Ali's previous DEclutter swaps as the basis for this one).

Let's declutter our kitchen pantry or other food storage area!

  • Can you find what you need to do some baking or cooking?

  • Do you have stuff that is looooong past the useby date?

  • Do you have food that no-one likes and will probably never eat?

  • If it is a walk in pantry, can you even walk in?

Let's DEclutter and document it so we can proudly show our swap partner the end results!!

For this swap you will:

  • take at least 3 before photos of your pantry cupboard/ food storage area

  • sort through everything in there (or if that is too daunting, sort through one shelf, or one wall - anything that is achievable)

  • compost (or bin if you do not have compost) those things that are out of date or you no longer use, recycle boxes or packaging if possible

  • put things in labelled containers if you have issues with bugs

  • try to put similar items together

  • tidy everything up

  • take at least 3 photos of the end results.

Email the photos to your swap partner and also write about how you felt during the decluttering process; feelings, surprises perhaps of things you found again/forgot you had, how much you got rid of etc.

You don't need to wait until swap partners are allocated to begin this declutter ~ just don't forget to take photos!!

I hope that lots of people will come join me in this swap!

Please let me know if you need the dates altered a bit to join us!

Best Wishes, Michelle

I really want to do this swap. It is on my watch list. But I don't think I can do it this month. Hopefully you will do it again for those of us who can't fit it in right now.

Those are great links. I just can't do this right now. I am really sad. But I hope you will be running a series of these declutter swaps? That would be ideal. Then we could do the ones we had time for. And then hopefully you would eventually repeat them all and we could pick up ones we missed. :)

I would love to do this one right now, however, I am still in the process of decluttering and deep cleaning my master bedroom along with my craft room. I did declutter my pantry about six months ago and it is in fairly good shape. Thank you so much for hosting it though. Maybe a little later.
