Pantry Clean Out Sweepstakes
Decluttering helps motivation!
As I was going through my own purge party and restock the pantry I was inspired thinking of all the others that were doing the same. And I would love to see those photos! And wait should we also make it a contest?
Plus I want to buy some thing from The Container Store® to really get excited about this project. Maybe I should give away gift cards so other people can be motivated for that!
Ohhhh but my kids are out of school for two weeks and they only want Mom at all times. Does anyone else’s mind run faster than reality can handle!?
Decluttering, prizes…whatever helps motivate us!
Nonetheless, I knew a contest was still a fun way for us all to get inspired by cleaning out the cupboards. January brings that natural feeling of refreshment. I love that.
I know we poke fun at New Year’s resolutions and I understand why, but I also love leaning into the natural feeling of wanting to clean out and refresh. We want to get back on track with eating, exercise, new cleaning schedule, clean out the closets and drawers. That’s okay! Let’s do it!
We know we cannot get it all done and we know it won’t be perfect but it can really be inspiring to have even the smallest area decluttered. I love cleaning out the pantry and the refrigerator because it does inspire me to live a healthy lifestyle. When I open my pantry and it is cleaned out and stocked well it overflows into meal planning and food choices.
*I should note this pantry doesn’t include my hidden Mom foods! Those are hidden in my home office 😂 My kids and husband have their pasta and chips. What you don’t see in a pantry is my big bowl of produce and my fridge full or protein!
It is a domino effect when the kitchen feels fresh and clean. The more cluttered and messy it feels, that can overflow into how prepared we feel in overall eating habits.
This is the time of year we all feel tempted to look at new eating plans, meal kits, meal plans and so on. Which is just fine! But regardless of the details, at the end of the day we need to get cleaned out and back to the basics for the best chance success.
Okay, onto the contest info. That’s what we really want to hear Steph!
I will be giving away two $50 gift cards to The Container Store®!
This sweepstakes is not a sponsorship, I am purchasing the gift cards.
Contestants are active members to Bariatric Food Coach who submit a photo of their cleaned out pantry or refrigerator.
The best place to do this is in our Facebook group so we can all see the cleaned out kitchens and cheer one another on! If you are not on Facebook simply email me a photo and you’ll still be entered into the sweepstakes.
Because I am adding this contest last minute I am extending the deadline through Sunday January 10th.
Many of you have already clean out your cupboards! Post your photo to the thread in our Facebook group or send me an email and I will add you to my list.
If you need more time to get cleaned out this week or next weekend, I have left time for you too! Submit your photo when you are ready and I will comment that you have been entered!
Two winners will be announced on Monday, January 11! Winners will be notified via email.
