Organization for Zero-waste Living

June 17, 2016

One of my zero-waste gurus, Bea Johnson, has been very open about the way she minimized her home that she shares with her husband and sons. She shows beautiful pictures of an all white house with orange accents here and there, closets with only enough clothes for a week's rotation, and cupboards containing mason jars filled with bulk products. The ideas were so inspiring when we initially went zero-waste that I think I went a little overboard with the purchase of reusable items.

 

Now that I've calmed down and realized we can't all realistically live such a minimal lifestyle, I've found what works for us in our home. The biggest area in most homes that need a refresh are the kitchens, where food gets lost and wasted each week. Here are some pics of our organization that I hope will inspire you to hit the reset button in your kitchen and start saving money by not wasting food:

 

Our house was built without a pantry, so we use our space as best we can to properly stock the kitchen for any meal prep situation. Keeping items facing forward, using the FIFO (first in, first out) method, and keeping everything clearly labeled really helps us.
