Homeowner’s pantry overhaul sparks a massive debate – but can you spot what’s causing controversy?
A homeowner has sparked debate online after sharing a picture of her newly re-organised pantry, and it all comes down to where she stores her eggs.
Australian woman Candice posted on Facebook, where she shared a snap of her shelves at home, which contain rows and rows of neatly-organised tins, jars and packets.
‘Pantry organising day!’ Candice wrote next to the photo.

彼女は付け加えた: ‘It took seven years to get to this point.
‘I got serious about healthy eating and slowly started learning how to make everything from scratch.
‘We never eat out or buy lunches, so all of these ingredients do eventually get used.
‘I would advise if you want to organise your supplies, then you need to pull everything out of your pantry, assess and re-organise.’
According to consumer organisation Choice, eggs don’t need to go in the fridge, but they will last longer if they are stored there (eggs in the fridge pictured)
While many were impressed with the neat and uniform stacking and ‘supermarket-shelf-like’ 見る, some could not get over where Candice stored her eggs.
‘Now you just need to put the eggs in the fridge and get some Tupperware,’ 一人の女性が投稿しました.
‘Maybe the egg cartons are empty, but eggs go off seven times quicker at room temperature compared to fridge,’ 別の追加.

Some defended Candice’s method of storing eggs, and said they always store their eggs at room temperature.
An egg farmer even weighed in the on the post, 書き込み: ‘I’m an egg farmer, fresh eggs store on shelf for four weeks, six weeks in the fridge. They are very stable as long as not stored in a hot place or in sunlight’.
According to consumer organisation Choice, eggs don’t need to go in the fridge, but they will last longer if they are stored there.
If they’ve been washed or refrigerated before (例えば, at the supermarket) then Choice say they should also go in your fridge at home.
Choice recommend that you lave the eggs in their cardboard cartons (not in the egg holders in your fridge door) to stop condensation building up.
The carton also helps stop eggs absorbing odours from the rest of the fridge, and it also serves as a good reminder of the use-by date.
