    Am I first? Just wanted to post from California that our cupboard looks like this because we have a rash of wierd little moths in our house and our cupboard was so infested we pulled everything out and now have to dump most and refill others. Found some mustard that expired in 2005 and never opened!

    Sweep it all together and call it “House blend.”

    Personally, I’m enjoying the fact that she’s still making her grocery list now that everything’s on the floor! :D

    The mustard was still good.

    This would usually happen to me when my mother would come to visit. The I’d get the lecture about being organized. Then she would proceed to re-organize my entire kitchen!

    I miss her

    Then it takes 6 months for you to find everything again, right?

    rugratz, we had those moths once, too. they were in everything. We had an exterminator come out and he was spraying between the support slats and the ceiling at the top of the cupboards. We had to unscrew every bottle top because there were larva in the threads. As you said, we threw away more than half of what we had in the kitchen. Then we put down the bay leaves. Don’t know if that worked or if the exterminator did his job, but they never came back.

    Back when more things were packaged in glass (like they were when this was drawn) you could lose a lot more from a collapse like this.

    I keep my various flours, corn meal etc. in some airtight cannisters with clips (from Target)- use the ceraic ones for sugar etc. Right now I also have some whole wheat flour in the frig, because the new one I just opened could not fit. I keep ground flax seed in a smaller one.

    All flour based products I buy spend 24 hours in the freezer before they go into the cabinet. That kills any weevil eggs that are there coming from the factory. It works.
