I decided it was about time that J & myself did some sort of pantry challenge. We like to eat out
So far this month we have eaten out twice and gotten take out once (which is a significant decrease), we have made a delicious meal of chicken tenders and creamy cheesy pasta with leftovers to keep us satisfied for a few days! We are actually eating our leftovers which rarely occurs, and we only bought the bare necessities (+ 2 deal items) when we went out for groceries. I'd say that so far the pantry challenge is working! We used up some items that were about to expire for breakfasts and lunches which amazes me!
Tonight we are having waffles with the brand new waffle maker I got for Christmas. I am super excited (plus we already had all the ingredients at home, go us!)
After the challenge of this next month and a little more than a half, I will share with you what my pantry looks like after the challenge (hint: it's gonna be super organized and functional again!)
