A 2011 Pantry Challenge
I am joining Life as Mom in her Pantry Challenge for January! I did this last year and it turned out to be a success! I create my "own rules" for this challenge because each family is different. The key is to use up a lot that is in our pantry and save some extra $$ this January to kick 2011 off right! My rules are as follows:
1. Use one pantry item or freezer item in each meal. I will indicate in my weekly meal plan which pantry or freezer item I am using.
2. Only buy what is necesary which includes produce, meat and dairy products.
3. Cut our normal grocery bill by at least 20%, so we can only spend $240 this month!
I'm linked up over at Life as Mom for this challenge!
