The Pantry Challenge

Well folks, I’ve done a little shopping in the last couple of days so I’m looking for some places to cut the budget and balance things out a little. I’ve decided to start with the grocery budget. I’m going to try to eat from the pantry and the freezer for the next two weeks. Honestly I’ve got enough soup, gumbo and spaghetti sauce to last me the whole two weeks, but I’m going to try to do as much cooking as I can.

So here’s the deal. I’ll be traveling some for work so I don’t actually have to account for two full weeks. I’m giving myself $7 a week to buy milk, herbs, yogurt – stuff like that. I’m going to pull out a bunch of the stuff that I bought ahead and froze last summer. That was the point right, that I’d be able to eat the yummy summer stuff in the Winter? So here we go. Wish me luck!
