We will be doing things a little differently this month in anticipation of some upcoming expenses. With school starting again soon and the expenses associated with that plus some other stuff going on I decided to make August a Pantry Month.
I think it will be a fun challenge as we prepare meals from our pantry and freezer with the food that is already on hand. I imagine as the month wears on it could get pretty interesting.
I will still buy some fresh produce and milk, but that will be pretty much it. I plan to keep those expenses to a minimum as well. In keeping with that I also plan to try and not buy any nonfood items either. Right now it looks like we have plenty of pet supplies, toiletries, toilet paper, laundry supplies and cleaning products so I don't plan to buy any of these things at all.
I'll be posting some of the meals we make each week in my "Last Week's Thrifty Moves" posts to keep you up on my progress. Let's see how well we do!
Do you ever do a pantry month?
