Groceries, menu planning, freezer management, recipes, etc.
Now that the new pantry is ready to use, for the most part, I'm noticing that my stockpile has been neglected. Time to get back to basics and stock the pantry. Lots of things I usually have lots of, I have none left.
So it's time to properly organize the new pantry, bring all the food to it, still scattered and see what I have and start combing the sales.
Won't be doing much shopping this week though, dh took time off and didn't put in for sick pay so we're short. But

I've only had to buy 1 snowsuit this week, actually needed 2, found only one. Snow will be coming soon. Groceries this week were $40. Due to awesome planning last week. This will last us until Saturday, when I do my regular shop.
I'll be planning that oe out in detail to, as it's a great saver! Using up lots from the freezer, most of my groceries are coming from the freezer for the last week, so it's slowly dwindling(that's the plan).
Tomorrow I should be able to transfer

So today, I did an inventory on the upright freezer. Meat is plentiful. So I'm refusing to buy any meat for the next 6 weeks. I want to use up what is in there. ThenI can defrost and sanitize it. Also, I will be ordering my 1/2 side of Certified Organic beef. I'm pretty pumped about that!
So, the meat part of my groceries is now taken care of.
Since starting to go organic, (as much as possible), my budget for 6 plus the daycare kids, has been about $175/week. Really

I have to get things back in their places now that the carpets are cleaned. The house looks awesome. I SO want to get rid of the carpets on the main floor, but they clean so well, that I'll bear with them for now.
I'm making my shopping list. I need to spend some time looking in the freezer and meal planning from what i have there. I have a bunch of meat that needs to get used up. In fact, I'm going to pull a crock pot meal from there right away and get supper
