Last week I actually got to pick Cameron up from school and I got to visit with my friend Tina. She told me about another Mama from STM that had started a blog about recipes and being budget conscious when it comes to feeding your family.
Middle Class Magic is a blog written by a Mom who would go shopping every week and buy what she thought she needed. Well a few weeks ago she got home and realized that she had no room in the pantry or freezer for what she bought. She decided that for 1 month she was going to give herself $30 for fresh produce and milk every week and only “shop” to feed her family from her pantry and freezer.
It made me think. I am good about planning a menu, but do I always look in my pantry and freezer first, no. So starting this week I am opening that dark place known as the pantry and feeding the crew from there. Now I am pretty frugal when it comes to buying extras so I won’t be able to go as far as she can but it did make me aware of other places I could save on the grocery budget.
Tonight we are having her Chicken and Noodles. I am excited and I had everything in my own pantry. Check her out and then check out your pantry what do you have hiding in there?
