Get Things Done. It is a working life-hack system for getting organized and staying productive. The end goal is to spend less time doing the things you have to do so you have more time for the things you want to do.  GTD is an organizational system that focuses on these concepts: 1. How you capture the work you need to do. This is a collection of lists, wishes, and plans. And it needs to be collected in a way that starts to keep it close and referred to often. 2.

Posted by Emanuele on May 02, 2016.

It’s easy to overlook the pantry and to keep it organized is not a priority for many people. Part of the reason is that it is in an accessible but out of the way part of the kitchen. The bigger reason is the mess. Often it is loaded with cans, baskets, jars, and bottles--many of them taking up permanent residence in the dark quarters, and many of them leaking, spilling, or half-opened. Even the thought of cleaning out the pantry might be daunting.
