Eating from the Pantry

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?

Clean Closet Pics!

Okay everyone, I am a SLACKER!!!  With the hustle and bustle of the holidays, I have neglected this blog.  I guess that may be a good New Years resolution for me.....Take time out for myself...doing things I enjoy! :)  So, I did finally clean my closet about a month or so ago and decided to post pics to prove it! Since my home lacks storage space, there are TONS of things in my closet, but at least it is organized!  What to organize next?
