Declutter Your Spice Rack

Wednesday April 9, 2014

Trying to get the clutter in your home under control? Don't forget to take a look at your spice rack. When you buy a spice for this recipe and a spice for that recipe, it doesn't take long for your collection to get out of control.

Eliminate some of the excess by finding recipes that use the spices that you have. Then, try to limit new additions to your collection.

Many of the most commonly used spice and seasoning blends can be made from a few basic spices. Stock those, and you'll have everything that you need to whip up a great meal, and none of the clutter that you don't.
