    I *should* be doing this challenge b/c we we need to defrost our chest freezer and my basement pantry shelving unit, I have bigger and better plans for this upcoming year. Both of these need to be cleaned out/eaten through/donated.

    Plus January-March is usually pantry depleting season as the grocery sales are horrible during this time.

    I'm in for this challenge. I have a full freezer; lots of tomatoes and grated zucchini from my garden that I want to use this winter.

    I'm in as well. This is really keeping me focused on rotating our stockpile, especially canned goods and misc. items in the pantry.

    I am in for 2012 as well. I want to become much better at using what we have and wasting less. I would like to cut the grocery budget by another 40 per month. That money will be put toward the vacation fund

    I'm in. we spent way too much money during Thanksgiving and Christmas on food. hopefully things will settle down now that we are moved and I can work on my grocery budget. baseball season is coming for my son, so I need to save money for cleats, pants, and equipment
