Boot Camp - Day 7

Spices (technically Day 9 in the book)

Technically, Day 7 is supposed to be the closet, but I'm just not quite finished in there. I've decided to do a pretty big purge, so it's taking me longer than I planned. Anyway, I have already done my spices so I decided to post about that today.

We have a pretty small cabinet that houses our spices and then one other area that has some overflow baking necessities. I decided to see if I could get them all in one space.


I followed Tanja's advice on this one and pulled everything out so I could see what I have. It looks like so much more when it's out of the cupboard.

I was able to get rid of a few things. I had two new bottles of vanilla and two boxes of baking soda. The other stuff I just don't use.

It doesn't look much different in my after picture, but it does all fit into one cupboard.


And this space is EMPTY! I have plans to use this for some items I have in the pantry, but we'll get to that later.


  1. A cleared out shelf! Now that's exciting. I bet you'll find something grand and wonderful to put in there, a beloved treasured kitchen something or other!

    You're doing great with the Bootcamp Jill! Can't wait to see more.


  2. I just did this the other day! Actually - I organized the pantry and tossed things that were expired and realized I didn't even unpack the spices! A lot of them had expired so they were tossed. I guess I never thought that spices expired, I don't know why!
