    Question Who is up for a Pantry/ Freezer Challenge for October?

    I have spent to much on groceries the last 2 months and my freezer, pantry cabinets you name it are bursting. (thanks to the great Kroger sales)
    Who wants to join me in a pantry /freezer challenge.
    Lets see how much we can use up and how creative we can be in using up those odd cans of stuff pushed to the back of the pantry or cabinet or lost in the freezer.
    Try not to spend any money on groceries except for perishables and rock bottom good deals.
    Anyone want to join. This will not start until October 1 so you will have time to stock up on things that you know you will need and give time to make up menus.

    I want in I usually try to use up stuff and go thru my stockpile (checking for anything close to expiration dates) at the end of October/November since it is the ending of hurricane season and before Christmas....so this will be perfect! It might be a little scary toward the end of the month....I know there are some hidden gems in my chest freezer (yikes!).

    I'm in. This is week 5 being unemployed (thank heavens for the pantry!). We have decided this is the way it is going to be for us for a while. After I get a job I will need to fix the damage to savings so the budget will stay tight for a bit longer :-)

    I'm in here as well. I seriously need to defrost my freezer outside. I wonder how many different ways CAN I use all of those frozen tomatoes from my garden? This should be interesting!

    I am in, we have a car repair on the credit card that I want to pay in full without tapping into savings. To do that I need to slash the grocery budget. I have a very well stocked pantry and freezer so now is the time. Thanks!
