  1. Meal planning
    Most people end up not realizing what's in their freezer and the food ruins with freezer burn. An easy way to know what you have on hand at all times is to keep an inventory of what you have. I used a simple spiral notebook that I hung on the wall next to the freezer. In it, I wrote down how...

    The thread for those of you who want to clean out your pantries in order to save money for other things in your life. :) I know mine will be home renovations. This is a continuation of the "Pantry Inventory and Menu Challenge" thread.
  3. Stockpiling
    Is there any good Pantry/Stockpile Inventory Software that is free? I've seen the documents that are available, however I would love to be able to put this on my computer and then somehow access this on my phone when I am at the store. The one requirement is I want it to be accessed via...
  4. Food challenges
    Okay ladies. Let's dive into our cupboards and freezers and make a list of everything we have. Then plan our next month's menus around those items. That should save us all a little extra in groceries to put towards Christmas! This morning I just did the basement freezer and cold room. I am...

    Hello, I am new and need help. Thought I saw a doc for freezer inventory and stock pile inventory, can you tell me how to find it. Thanks!
  6. OAMC, Homecanning, Freezing, and Preserving
    Some things are easy. I have no problem whatsoever using up grape jelly, strawberry jam, peach butter - even if it is just on biscuits or PB&J sandwiches. The banana split in a jar I made last year was AWESOME and very tasty on ice cream. Other things, however, are more of a challenge. For...
  7. Household notebooks and home manuals
    :box: I put if off until the last moment ~ but I did it. I made an inventory of all stockpiled pantry items - as well as HBA & cleaning. the cleaning list is really small & simple. I made the inventory sheet in Publisher, but I can't seem to attach it - it says "invalid file" :sigh...

  10. Household notebooks and home manuals
    Monkeywrangler's thread title got me thinking..... I haven't done it since moving into this home but at my last 2 apartments I took pictures of each room as a way of archiving my belongings. I got this idea from a jeweler who only sells his items, either 200 purchases or 2 years before...
  11. Household notebooks and home manuals
    Does anyone keep a spreadsheet, database or printed inventory of stuff - primarily stuff that is packed away. I know some of you do this for your pantry, but I'm thinking along the lines of something for the out of season/wrong sized clothing that so many of us pack away for our kids. I just...
  12. Stockpiling
    I made this inventory sheet for my pantry & freezer inventories to help me to know what I have on have throughout my stockpiling ventures. Also helps to let me know when I need to start looking for sales on some items I use frequently. Just thought some of you could use them as well.
  13. Stockpiling
    I am so proud of myself. I have cleaned out cabinets and reorganized what I had. I went on my weekly grocery shopping trip Saturday to Aldi and saved $70. ($130/$200-$250)When I got home the kids offered to help unpack but I no thanks, I wanted to see what I had organized. This is what I have: 9...
  14. Food challenges
    I HATE doing freezer inventory! But it saves me big money, because I have a terrible memory, and the freezer is like a big black hole! So I've just tackled the kitchen freezer (the one that is part of the refrigerator). Oddly enough, I dislike going through that one more than the upright...

    I was reading my Real Simple magazine last night and they had an article about taking your home inventory. I've been wanting to do this for a long time. They gave this site for a free downloadable inventory program. I just finished doing it. Very quick and easy. Here's a link in case anyone...
