Eat From the Pantry Challenge!

How is everyone doing with their pantry (and freezer) challenge?
I am proud to say I have done really great!  I know my friend, Kjersten is right on track also making meals from her pantry!

I've kept my grocery shopping to a minimum so far and spent $26.50 last week on groceries.  Mostly fruits and veggies and a side trip to the bakery outlet for tortillas and bread.

This really forces me to think ahead and plan out my meals a bit more as well as be more creative with my cooking.  But it's nice to have a little break from coupons and not make so many trips out in the cold with three kids!

If any of you are doing this I would love to hear how it's going for you!


  1. Excuse me...did you say bakery outlet? And where would that be?

  2. we're doing well here! :) but I did spend more than $26! I guess it really does pay to hoard...I mean stockpile ;)
