Eat From the Pantry Challenge

December 28th, 2017 at 02:54 am

I am joining some other youtubers in an eat from the pantry challenge for the month of December. My goal is to not go into the grocery store for the month of January except to buy dairy, greens, and bread. I think it is something we can accomplish quite easily based on our pantry and freezer stock. But just because we can doesn't mean it is something I want to do sometimes. However, we need to be saving up money for daughter's sinus surgery and taking a huge chunk out of the grocery budget to deposit into saving for that would be very helpful right now.

Of course this does not include the lamb we are getting at the end of January and which is mostly paid for anyway with the deposit we already put down. But that is December spending, not January spending.

I'd like to stay out of the stores as much as possible, but I know I will have to purchase prescriptions. I'll try to do that through drive-thru only. Though I may have to order some vitamins online. Still, if I can keep it to that I will be very happy. We have plenty of toiletries so I think it will go quite well.

I'll be detailing the challenge here on the blog as well as doing at least a weekly video for it on my channel. If anyone wants to join in with me for the month or even for a week or two, you are more than welcome to do so.

    I will definitely follow your progress. I already made the decision today that we don't need to go to the store this week. We bought so much for the holiday that I have plenty to get through the end of the week. Originally, I thought I could just push it a day or two.

    I can eat from the pantry this month, but I will have to get pet supplies. Like you, my toiletries and household supplies will hold up well, I think. Anyway, I will join you in the challenge!
