Key #2

Preparing Your Kitchen - Cleaning Your Pantry, Fridge & Freezer

Welcome to Key #2 of Getting Your Kitchen Prepped and Becoming The Prepared Mama

Today's Key is one of the most important things that you can do. The problem is it is never complete and it is something that should be done on a regular basis. Today is going to be a really productive day and after you have completed everything, I am asking you to do - You are going to feel Amazing! 

I can’t really expect you to go to the store and purchase groceries for food prep next week and then you have no place in your house to put these items. That would be a disservice of me, and I would be setting you up for failure before you even begin. 

Do you want to see what my pantry, fridge and freezer look like? Watch the video above.

Doesn’t it sound nice to have an organized Pantry, Fridge and Freezer?

Assignment # 2



I have attached inventory lists for your pantry, fridge, spices and freezer. Go ahead and print or fill those out. Click on the PDF or Editable button below.

Pull everything out, wash down the shelves. Replace items that you are going to use. Discard old items or things that you are not going to ever eat. I go with motto, "When in doubt, throw it out!".



Pull everything out of your fridge, even out of the side shelves. Wipe everything down. Only place items back in your fridge that are safe to eat and that you will eat.



Pull everything out of your freezer. Discard ruined food.  Wipe everything down.  As you are putting food back in your freezer be conscious of dates and categorize your freezer into different sections of foods (ie: vegetables, meats, etc).

I am having you do this very basic step, of cleaning and organizing what you have so that you will have the space for actually preparing meals next week.

Today you are going to clean out your pantry, your fridge, your freezer and any cupboards that you have that contain food. Anything that has been opened for awhile and is stale you need to get rid of. Anything that is expired you are going to toss. Anything that has been in your cupboard for 3 or more months that you haven’t even opened yet – you might consider chucking. Now I am not talking about cleaning up or throwing out your long term food storage for emergencies. I am talking about the food you revert to for your daily food needs. 

Happy Purging, inventorying and cleaning! You will feel so much better after you are done. I look forward to seeing the transformation in your kitchen and the progress of your journey of you becoming the Prepared Mama!

Until Tomorrow,

Mama Bear Kristy
