#20MinuteMissions | Week 1 (Spice Cabinet)

Hey all! Just a quick check-in, with my results from the first week of 20 Minute Missions.

My spices drawer (and the oil, vinegar and sauces drawer below it) is decluttered and containerized.

Here’s a look at my “before” pictures.

I combined and tossed duplicates (I had four cayenne peppers ๐Ÿ˜ฒ), and labeled the lids to make it quicker and easier to grab the right one when Iโ€™m cooking.

Before I put everything back, I gave a good wipe down to the rather sticky, icky drawers.

I will tell you that I briefly considered alphabetizing them because I though that would “look good” on Instagram. But I quickly snapped out of that silliness. Maintenance would be way too annoying.

  1. hatzlacha! i found that my biggest challenge with this sort of “mission” is that by the time you are a couple months in you need to put those first assignments back on the list!
