Food


I spend too much on food.
Especially since my pantry is full pretty much all the time.
So I am issuing myself a challenge.
I just went grocery shopping, and spend an average amount for me, about $250.
That is what I spend about every two weeks, for four people.
In my defense I do buy a lot of fresh food, meat, produce, dairy, etc.
I am wondering how long I can make it last with what I already have laying around.
Am I capable of living off of what I have?
Can a family of four live mostly off of food storage, when the "fresh stuff" runs out?
I am thinking... yes.
So here is what I am going to do. I am not going to do a full grocery run for another 4 weeks. That doesn't count stuff like milk, and eggs that will most definitely expire within that time frame.
I will also make nutritious meals.
Healthy and tasty is what I am aiming for.
So here goes!
Anyone with me?

I don't go grocery shopping because I'm too lazy.

I'm with you. I spend too much on groceries too. Have my milk delivered helps because even though it costs more then grocery store milk, it keeps me from going to the store as often. And it's organic so it's healthier too!

If I could keep myseld from buying chocolate, I could save a bundle!
