Today marks the first day in my adventure in living from the pantry/freezer for a month. Its just my husband, myself and my 3, almost 4 month old daughter, so this is an easier feat than it would be in some other households!
Yesterday I did my last shopping trip for a month. I got the deals I talked about in yesterday's post and they were great, although some of the Walgreen's deals I had been planning on getting weren't available, sadly. I am excited about the free hotdogs/buns not because our family loves them, but because I can donate some of them to our church's Superbowl Party, where the youth group is doing some fund raising for their Spring Retreat.
The best deal I got yesterday was actually at Fred Meyer, and was a deal I came across looking through the ads: $6 of any 9 Kraft products. I got 6 packages of shredded Kraft cheese, 3 packs of cream cheese, a package of reduced salad, a gallon of milk, and a loaf of bread all for $10 and some change. Even the checker said what a great deal all that was!
The only not-so-great part of my shopping trip was being out with my munchkin shopping for almost 4 hours (went to 4 stores). Her nap had to be on the road, along with a feeding and diapering in the chilly car (what fun!). Which is why I don't like to drive anywhere any more than every other day.
All that rambling to say that I will start posting menus from my eat from the pantry/freezer for a month at least every few days, so check back to see how it went!
