    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 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
