Money Saving Mom is working to encourage you to shop less. The idea is that we all have so much food in our pantries already that we regularly forget about. Instead, we end up shopping and spending more when we donâ€™t really need to. This month, the goal is to try and use what you have on hand, which will force you to be a little bit more creative than usual and will help you save money in the process.
I’ve decided to join in this challenge. My goals are:
* To reduce our grocery spending to $100 in January
* To “clean out” our freezer and pantry
* To learn to “make do” with what we have!
I think that we have enough food storage that I should be able to “get by” with just buying a few fresh fruits and vegetables, milk, and maybe bread.
I’ll try to post once a week about what we’ve eaten, if we’ve had any failures or successes, and what we really need to add to our food storage for next time.
If you’d like to join this challenge, it’s not too late.
Here’s to a healthy and frugal 2010
