    Ok Ladies..I will have $500 to spend from our income tax to stock our pantry and freezer. I will be cooking and baking from scratch mainly if that helps :) So where do I start and what do I stock up on?

    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.

    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...

    My elderly mother was staying with me the other day, and she wanted to help do something. So we emptied the pantry, and reorganized it. It was stuffed, and I just been fitting in can, jars, bottles, bags whereever I thought I could make something fit. We separated everything on the table and...

    When I move I am going to have to buy all new grocerys, even the basics like flour and such. We have food here where we are now, but we are going to eat it all up and not buy any grocerys til we move and start fresh. What are some things I should NOT forget to buy?? I don't want to OVER buy but...

    :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...

    OK! Who is ready to start again or anew? Let's use up what we already have in our pantries and freezers before we buy more stuff. This will save us money and space. It will also help make sure our stuff doesn't go bad. No real rules. Do whatever is best for you. Post daily, weekly, or whenever...

    OK people! Who is ready for another month of trying to eat up what we have already bought? December is a great month to clean out those pantries or freezers to prepare for a fresh, clean start to the new year. Think of the money you will save. You can use it to pay for Christmas gifts, pay off...

    I am losing ground fast with my freezer. I am putting more in than I am taking out so I hope others are doing better. Are you still clearing out or adding from the garden/farmer's markets??
  14. Pests
    I have moths in my pantry for some reason. I looked this up on the internet and it said to throw all of the food in there away. I checked the bags and they had small holes in them, some of them even had worms in them. I threw all the food away, rice, noodles, beans, popcorn, etc. Have you...

    I have been acting like I have been eating out of my pantry and freezer for months now. You would think eventually I would make some progress. Well, no because I am addicted to shopping-just grocery store shopping. We have a freezer so full I can barely close it. We had to buy a new shelf for...

  17. Kitchen Basics
    I started with a can of pintos and one onion. I sauteed the onion and added the pintos (juice and all). Then I thought to myself what could I added to make it better? So I added a can of chicken and a ton of spices. I added some chicken stock (because of all the natural starches in the pinto...
  18. Stockpiling
    If you had to start over on your pantry from the very start and could do it any way you wanted, how would you do it. Location, location, location. Just this summer we moved the pantry out of the laundry room (where the builders placed shelves) and redid the under the stairs coat closet to...

  20. Question and Answer
    My sister drew my name for the family secret santa, and asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I was thinking about working on our stockpile, and asking for some of the more expensive stock items, and providing a bunch of ideas. We cook mostly from scratch, and I don't want to ask for anything...
