How was your weekend? Did you work on decluttering? I took my big box of donations in, but that’s it! What sort of No spend activities did you do? We had a quiet weekend. But did make a quick trip to the city over to go to Costco and make some Christmas returns.

Day 4 Declutter Task:
In our home, I have a few cupboards and shelves devoted to pantry stuff. No official pantry, but it works for me! However, after a while, things start to get messy in those places because I tend to get a bit careless when I’m putting things away. (Mainly because I’m trying to hurry, since putting things away is not one of my favourite things to do.)
I think I can do so much better with getting like items with like items. So that’s what today’s decluttering task is going to be. Decluttering and organizing our pantry areas.
In case you’re looking for some inspiration on how to organize your pantry, here’s a post I did that has a bunch of links to pantry organization ideas.
Day 4 No Spend Task:
Once again, we’re going to try our hardest to not spend money! But also today, since we’re organizing our pantries, we’re going to take inventory of what we have found. This is going to help us with our No Spend task tomorrow.
For your convenience, I have a printable pantry inventory list here.
What is the weirdest thing you found in your pantry?
I will be posting each task in the Simply Frugal No Spend Declutter Challenge Facebook Group. This is where most of the discussion will be happening.
I will also be posting random progress reports throughout the challenge over at Instagram! Follow me on Instagram @simplyfrugal and use the hashtag #nospenddeclutter to get updates and see what others are up to during the challenge!
If you do not use social media, I would love to read your comments on each task, right here, below each challenge post on SimplyFrugal.ca!
