Sort through your pantry for packages with the remnants you didn’t use when preparing a meal. (I had a bag with maybe a cup of split peas leftover from when I made split pea and ham soup – a meal that wasn’t a big hit, so the chance of me using those dried peas was nonexistent.)
Make plans to use these ingredients, if you can.
If this task doesn’t apply to you: Check your refrigerator for any condiments that have overstayed their welcome.
