If you're hiding inside when the weather really gets chilly, you will probably find yourself spending a lot more time in the warmth of your comforting kitchen. It's the prefect time to think ahead and go through those dusty kitchen cabinets to freshen up and use up leftovers.
Do jars take up more space than fresh produce, dairy and meats? Wasting food is never a good idea, but remove that ancient jar of pickles or find a great use for half-used condiments. Have half a bottle of BBQ sauce floating around your fridge? Make a BBQ meatloaf for dinner tonight. I keep all my jars and bottles together, so I can see what I have at a quick glance, to avoid over-spending on items I'll only use once.
