Organizing My Pantry before and after Pictures

After doing my earlier post about making Thanksgiving and the holidays easier and taking a picture of my pantry, I realized it has gotten out of hand.
I have never had so much food in my cupboard and that is great but I need to start finding ways to use some of it up over the next few weeks. This is not saying I won't buy the great deals I find, but in the same time want to clear out the old as I bring in more.
Right now in my cupboard I have
20 Hamburger Helper ( the majority of these were bought at Walmart on the clearance shelf for 50 cents each and I had coupons
6 Macaroni and Cheese Jiffy cups ( quick lunch )
11 Jars of Ragu Spagetti sauce
13 Betty Crocker Au Gratin Pototatoes ( these have coupons on them for liter Coke bottles)
5 Packages of Velvetta Macaroni and Cheese or Kraft Macaroni Cheese
5 Jiffy Blue Berry Muffin packages
6 Jiffy Corn Bread Muffin packages
1/3 of a package of Instant mash potatoes
1 Pasta Roni
2 1/3 boxes of Elbow Macaroni pasta
4 packages of Idahoan Mash Potatoes
1 Jello pudding
3 Jello
1 package of Taco Shells
1 package of Banquet Homestyle Bakes Creamy Cheesy Chicken Alfredo
1/2 package of Bisquick
1 Free Sample of Betty Crocker Potatoes
1 package of Carnation Instant Breakfast
1 1/2 bottles of Ranch dressing
1 bottle of Italian dressing
5 Bumble Bee Albacore Tuna packages
8 cans of Campbell Tomato soup
3 cans of Mushroom soup
3 Progresso Soup
1 Campbell Select Soup
2 cans of Rotel Tomatoes
10 cans of Hunts Diced Tomatoes with spices
1 can of peas
2 cans of popeye spinach
3 cans of Chicken gravy
5 Jars of Salsa
4 Cans of Hormel Chili
3 Jars of Peanut Butter
2 mustard
3 Lea & Perrins Worchester Sauce
1 Miracle Whip
5 + boxes of Cereal
3 boxes of Quaker Instant Oatmeal
4 + cans of Coffee
2 packages of Taco seasoning
1/2 package of Lipton Soup Mix
2 1/2 packages of Lipton to Go
plus samples of ceareal, and nutrition bars
This list shows what I have a lot of and what I have little of. I will print out this list and cross off as I use items or add items when I buy.
This is just the pantry items need to do an inventory list on items in linen closet and laundry, cleaning areas of home and put a list of that.
There is the before and the after picture of my pantry now. Not perfect but sure a lot better.
