Organizing the Pantry in hopes of Saving money

February 22nd, 2009 at 05:35 am

This morning I am going through my pantry to "create meals" this week. I'm hoping to save a few dollars from eating what I have and not purchasing items I don't need right at the moment. I'm doing well thusfar. I found to things of sugar both half empty I put the too togther and tada I have a whole thing of sugar. lol I'm so glad I finally got around to doing this. I'm also found a brand new jar of peanut butter I bought about a month ago and haven't opened. I'm definetely going to eat pbj sandwiches at work this week. This stuff works if I don't have to purchase to many food items this week I can send a payment towards my debt snowball.

    It's very therapeutic to do that once in a while. And a good way to make sure that you use things before they expire, as well as find surprise items like you did. Good work!

    Great idea Smiley, I have been doing that since the beginning of the year and my cupboards are definitely getting bare. I bought 5 pounds of sugar yesterday! Ha!

    Right now I have cheese-onion bread casserole in the oven, which I put together because a half-loaf of French bread had gone hard. I am ALL about using up stuff. Just can't understand throwing away food.

    Definitely has helped us the past few months, but I am eating more and more frugally it seems. Making lentil soup for lunches next week today.

    Good for you. That's an approach I haven't seen before. I actually stock up when I see something I use a lot of on sale. That approach has helped me to make it through some weeks where my checking account was running on fumes. Let us know how it goes.
