Pantry Challenge

I was reading Lisa Eirene's blog the other day and I stumbled upon a post about a pantry challenge. Her pantry seemed just as packed as mine is. I have been noticing lately that the pantry and the freezer are full.

We don't have kids, but we still have oodles of cereal!

It is to the top right now because I bought some Chicken and Beef in bulk the other day
I keep telling myself that I need to just eat what is in the freezer and pantry for a while until I start to run out of things. It will definitely save us money. After seeing her challenge I decided to finally get my butt in gear and actually do it.

I told T about the challenge and he is all for it. We will be eating what is in our freezer and in the pantry. The only things we can buy are things that spoil - i.e. Veggies, Milk, Juice, etc. The only time I can see me buying anything else is it I need something for my Christmas Cookies.

Wish us luck!

Anyone else have a full pantry or freezer? What do you do to dwindle it down?


  1. I try to do that as much as possible. Plus, we are eating more "natural" and less processed foods now, so once we eat them up, we're not replacing them. It feels good to clean out the cupboard!

  2. That's so great! I'm glad you were inspired to do it too. It's so easy to just buy buy buy and forget about pantry stuff.
