How's your food storage doing?

  1. Four packages of ground sirloin and one large package of patties and smoked beef hot dogs left with exbf. I am pretty sure I will never eat beef again. I'm keeping the ground pork, just hanging on to it as a memory, I suppose.

    Pantry is full of food. Baskets of potatoes await me.

  2. Wow! Not only do you track you pennies, you track your salad dressing? We go through gallons of ranch dressing around here. I don't know why. But apparently it's everyone's favorite condiment.

  3. We are very well stocked in the freezer and pantry department, even with moving to a reduced on hand amount. Produce is limited to what I can get cheaply, seasonally from farmer friends/Farmer's market/grocery. Little canned/fzn produce remains. I will most likely top that off come cold weather and sales. Looking to eat down our wares and have planned out Oct and Nov menus as I head back to college for training for my new career. Quick/easy Crock pot meals are the feature of these upcoming dinners as often, I will be in class, so kids are on their own. I will eat before I go, leaving something for them, still warm in the CP

  4. Id love to find a ranch dressing deal, salsa, and BBQ as we use lots of all three. Learning to save here!

  5. I tend to forget what is in storage and go buy more of the same.

  6. What is your objective in tracking ins and out? For finance purposes? Or diet so you can see how good/bad you are eating?

    Are you happy with the outcome?

    1. It's merely for me to keep track of what comes in/goes out/what we have.
