It felt good to get rid of all the old, expired, and unhealthy foods! I threw out two full garbage bags! There really wasn't much to donate - sadly, we had a lot of expired foods and wasted money in our cupboards. But's that gone now and we can start fresh! There are a still a few not-so-healthy foods lurking, but I'm in a better mind-set now to use them in more healthy ways. We had been on vacation recently and there really wasn't much in the fridge anyway. It felt good to toss out the old. I was really tired last night so all the food is still on the counters this morning. When I get some time this afternoon I will give the shelves a clean wipe-down and then start making a list of healthy staples, etc. It will feel good to head to the store with a healthy list in hand - and to put the food into clean, tidy spaces! That fridge of ours is going to need a good wipe-down, too! It's embarrassingly gross!
Update - cleaned out the freezer in the house and garage and tossed another full garbage bag - ugh! Defrosting the freezer tonight and plan to fill it with healthy meals. I'm looking into some batch cooking so I can have individual and family-size meals ready to go! I'm sick of cleaning/organizing but it will be soooo worth it in the long run!
