Herbs and spices! How many do you have? Do you use them often? How old are they? As you can see we have way more than we need. The majority of these are seldom used and some never used. They have been around way too long in my book. It drives me nuts but this is another place where Mom has her ideas and she isn’t going to change. I’ve tried. Some of these moved with us 5 years ago. Yes, that’s right! Five years ago!! I wish it would all disappear.
I think we would be much better off if we tossed it all and just bought things as we use them and then in small amounts. We are blessed to live where we have these stores with spices you can buy according to weight. If you need a tablespoon of something you have never used before you can go there and buy it. I like that. You don’t have a bunch of something it turns out you don’t like.
If you only use it once or twice a year for some special recipe you don’t have to have it sitting around getting old.
I’m on a campaign to lessen the amount of spices we have and the age of them. Wish me luck.
Today’s Mini Mission
This one may be more than a mini mission but that would depend entirely on how out of control you allow this area to become. The area for today is the desk top.
Eco Tip for the Day
Be very selective about what you buy so that you are so satisfied with the product that you will use it until it wears out and not trade it in for something else soon after.
