Eat from the Pantry Challenge – Week 3 Wrap Up

1x1.trans Eat from the Pantry Challenge   Week 3 Wrap Up

We are over half way through the Eat From Your Pantry Challenge and I have to say I am really impressed with how we have been doing so far.  Yes I still go to the store, but I have been spending so much less than usual.  Through organizing my pantry and freezer I have found so much food that I had previously stocked up on and just forgot we had.

Through the challenge I have been doing a better job than usual with meal planning.  This has prevented my mid-week grocery store trips.  I love being able to go just once a week!  This week we spent $35.89 (plus got a $2 Catalina for our next trip) at the grocery store and got:

1 dozen organic eggs
Organic butter
5 Totionos Pizzas (not a necessity by any means, but they were on great sale with coupons)
String cheese
2 lbs bananas
2 lbs kiwi
1 lb strawberries
4 Annie’s Mac and Cheese
4 Campbells chunky soups (another great coupon deal)
2 condensed tomatoes soup
2 containers grape tomatoes

How did you do this week?
