Printable Pantry, Fridge & Freezer Inventory List

Before you begin taking inventory of your kitchen items I suggest cleaning your fridge, freezer and pantry! It will make taking inventory of what you have much easier and more efficient. 

  • Remove all Food items {put frozen food in a cooler if you feel it will take long enough for things to start defrosting}
  • Use a mixture of 2 tablespoons of baking soda and 1 quart warm water and wipe down shelves, doors, drawers ect. 
  • Take out Ice Bin and wipe down {ice can absorb odors}
  • Make sure you vacuum in the pantry floor, behind the fridge and underneath it {dust on the coils will cause fridge to use more energy to work properly}
  • Wipe down the front of fridge with soapy water {stainless steel need special cleaner}. Dont forget the handles inside and out! 
  • Check dates on all boxes, cans, bottle and packing.
  • Place items back in categories {such as: grains, canned food, condiments, cheeses, snacks, chips, cookies, quick meals, fruit, vegetables ect.} 
  • Take children into consideration for height adjustments.
  • I suggest labeling to make life easy for others to put things back in the same place {nothing drives me crazier when i cant find something someone moved}
  • This is a time to pull out your list and start taking an inventory of what you have. 

 

Taking inventory not only helps you use up what you have on hand but helps creating a shopping list a breeze. Once you plan your menu you will know what you need. Then you refer to your inventory list and only buy what you are missing. This will help keep your costs down and stop you from wasting food. 

One the sheet write down what you have. There is a section to tally how many of the item you have. I dont think anyone has more than 5 of one thing. {lets hope} But everytime you pull something out of the pantry/fridge/freezer you can mark off one of the tallies.

Here are a few ideas for artwork that is easy, cheap and all you need is paper! 

 

 

Below I made artwork for my baby's nursery using 4 canvas and 12 x 12 inch scrapbook paper. I spread Mod Podge all over the back of paper and placed it on the canvas. Then I put a coat of Mod Podge on the front of paper and let it dry. It will look wrinkled and wet but trust me it dries perfectly. So easy So Cheap and it looks great on the wall. Think of the possibilities. 


 

 

 

Here I took 4 x 6 cards and inserted them in a collage frame.  I actually got the frame for $1 at a store because it had a piece of broken glass. I replaced it and spray painted it white. It gave it a shabby chic look than when it was black. Another great way to use this besides just being a beautiful piece of artwork is to add topics to each frame. Then use a dry erase marker to keep updates. For example days of the week can turn this into a weekly meal planner or a weekly family schedule. 

 

 

 

I really Love this Idea! I am always looking for cute phone cases and this just makes it affordable! Buy a clear phone case. I purchased mine on amazon for $1.99 but it took 3 weeks to get. Then buy whatever paper at the store you l
