Pantry Challenge: Had To Run To The Store For One Item!

Today, I decided to make a recipe that used up a variety of items from my pantry.  I made Pasta Fagioli!  I put all the ingredients in.  I used only half the amount of ground beef that the recipe called for, but I had run out of spaghetti sauce.

Since I was running over to Target anyway to pick up a gift for a birthday, I looked for a deal and bought two jars of spaghetti sauce that were on sale for $1.79 each.  My new total for the week is still under my $50 budget.  My new total for the week is around $42.

Pantry Challenge: Save Money On Food At The Grocery Store

I went on my first shopping trip at the grocery store while doing the Pantry Challenge.  I have a budget of $50 per week to feed my family of four. Yesterday, I was able to get out of the grocery store   and I only spent $39.55!  I even bought a gallon of organic milk and organic hot dogs!  I mostly bought produce and I only bought enough to get me through the week.

What I have learned from my first shopping trip during the Pantry Challenge: We don't need much!  Produce goes bad, so only get what you need to get through that week.  Also, there are only 7 days in a week,  so you will need to make 21 meals.  It sounds like a lot, but breakfast is usually cereal or oatmeal and lunch is usually a sandwich and sides or leftovers from dinner, so you really only need to cook 7 meals.  If you can find 7 quick and easy and cheap dinner ideas, then you are set!

Make a meal plan for the week.  Include what you already have in your freezer and pantry and only buy the things you really need for the recipe to be complete when you go to the grocery store.

Pantry Challenge: Use Less Meat

Meat is one of the most expensive food groups to buy at the grocery store.  To cut back on your grocery bill and make meat last, use less meat.  Buy a smaller cut of meat and make more healthy side dished to fill everyone up.

A plate should consist of 1/4 meat, 1/4 vegetables, 1/4 fruit and 1/4 starch (like noodles or rice).

Instead of making a beef pot roast, you could make a beef stew and use the leftovers on leftover night or as lunch.

Other countries use meat sparingly as a flavoring instead of having it is the main dish for a meal.

Use less meat.  It will save you money and it is healthier!

Pantry Challenge: Find interesting Recipes To Use Up Your Food

Find a few things in your freezer or pantry that need to be used up soon or that you have too much of.  Is a food item getting close to its expiration date?

Go to sites like allrecipes.com or Pinterest and put the name of the food item into your that sites search box.  You will find a few pages of recipes for that ingredient.  Choose which recipe works for you and make it that night or put it in your meal planner for another night.

You will be using up food before it goes bad and making something interesting that you have never made before.  The nice thing about allrecipes.com is that you get ratings for each recipe and any tweaks that others who have tried that recipe have made.

Feed A Family Of Four On $50 A Week!

I have decided to do a Pantry Challenge!

I am doing the Pantry Challenge for two reasons:

1.  To save money.
2.  To use up what I have.

I have decided on a $50 budget per week for perishables like fresh fruits, vegetables and dairy.  We already have tons of meat in the freezer from shopping sales and buying in bulk at Costco.

I have been wanting to clear my pantries and freezer because I notice that we have so much stuff that just sits there.  Instead of waiting for the freezer items to get freezer burn and the pantry items to expire before throwing them away and waisting all of that money, I have decided to make a point to use it up.

I think it will be good to do a month long pantry challenge twice a year.  Hopefully I will learn a lot from this challenge.

Steps to take to be a part of the Pantry Challenge:

1. Look at what you already have.
2. Make a meal plan from what you already have.  You can do a week at a time or do the whole month at once.
3. Make a list of items you need to get through the week from the store.  Try to find substitutes that you can use that you already have.  Normally, you should just need perishables.
4. Find sales for the items that you do need.
5. Try to stretch out the amount of time between grocery shopping trips.  Remember, every time you walk in the grocery store, you will be spending money towards your budget.
6.  Make a budget.  Make it realistic so it will not be such a chore.  Some people try to spend nothing during their challenge and if you can do that, that is great!  For me, this is my first challenge so I am choosing a budget of $50 for our family of four.
7. Eat leftovers or incorporate them into a new meal.  You can eat leftovers for lunch or have a leftover night where you just warm up leftovers instead of creating a new meal.

Each day I will share with you any tips I learn, recipes I make and challenges I run into during the Pantry Challenge

If you would like to join the pantry challenge, leave a comment below.  I would love to hear your ideas, challenges and recipes!  Let's do this together!
