How do you stock your pantry?

The paper scraps and sticky notes are piling up. I jot down an idea or a place to submit something. After a week or so, the mess gets shoved into a folder. Well, I just flipped through that folder and laughed out loud when I pulled out a great call for submission---dated 2008. My heart flip-flopped. I have decided that it is just best to write what's on my mind and then tweak it to fit a particular call for submission when I see it. Sort of like having a stocked pantry. Although my husband and I have a different way of stocking. I shove things in and he lines thing up. Writers have the right to be messy; it is a sign of creativity.
