Personal May Challenge

After adding up what we spent for groceries in April, we were stunned to realize that we spent $782.  Yikes!  Our freezer is stuffed full of food.  Our challenge for this month is to eat down our freezer and pantry.  I will plan meals around what we already have.  For grocery shopping, I will focus on replenishing what we always eat down, fruit, fresh veggies, milk, cheese, bread, soda (yes, I know!) and snacks like raisins that seem to disappear quickly.

We will do a better job this month!

  1. Yikes! that is a pile of cash. Using up what you have is a double gift.... you get to save money on May groceries AND you know your meals will be preplanned for the week, easing off that 'what are we going to eat' last minute stress. Looking forward to hearing how it goes.

  2. That's about average for us.... mind you there are 6 of us and food allergies to deal with, but we've been spending so much on absolutely everything lately. :( Just had to buy fans for the house as the upstairs is like a sauna... $70 later... *sigh*

  3. Good luck with your pantry/freezer challenge. I did one a while back and it is doable. You just don't get exactly what you want to eat all the time.

  4. I love shopping our own cupboards and freezers! It's nice to get creative and using what you already have. Keep us updated :)
