Our friends over at MoneySavingMom. com and LifeasMom.com came up with a wonderful idea...try and eat from your pantry/freezer stockpiles for the month of January. This is a huge challenge for me as I usually go to the store at least twice a week. I decided to give it a try and see how I do. Everyone is to make their own rules to follow as each family has different needs. My goals for this challenge are.....
#1 Take an inventory of my pantry, fridge and freezer.
#2 Make a menu plan based on what I have on hand. (breakfast, lunch and dinner)
#3 Purchase only dairy, baking and produce items from the store during the month of January.
#4 Spend $100 on groceries for the entire month. (Am I crazy?? Yes I am!)
#5 Post how much I spent at the store.
I guess it is time to start taking inventory. Care to join me?
