As I start cooking more and more from scratch, I findI need to get organized in the kitchen.  Tossed out the spices which have been there since the age of time and am starting fresh.  Containers instead of bags tossed on shelves makes it so much easier to find things  Organize your pantry so you can find things AND you know what is there.  I am forever buying new stuff because I couldn’t find something.
