SPICE UP YOUR LIFE!

ORGANI-SPRING WEEK 2, TASK 1:  SPICE RACK  

Do you have dried spices and herbs that have been lurking around your kitchen for 10 years and through 3 moves? 
 If there is not an expiration date on the bottle, here are the guidelines for when to pitch: 
  • seasoning blends, 1-2 years 
  • herbs,  1-3 years 
  • ground spices,  2-3 years  
  • whole spices,  3-4 years 
  • extracts, 4 years 
  • pure vanilla extract, salt & cream of tartar, indefinitely.  
As with all items in your kitchen:  when in doubt, throw it out!

There is a plethora of information about cleaning out your winter guck and letting the spring sunshine into your home, so we're focusing on those little things around the house that will give you a more organized home and perhaps a bit more storage along the way.  Just 4 weeks, 5 tasks per week, around 10 minutes per task and VOILA! in around an hour a week the little things in life seem a bit more organized.
