    Or you can plan to use up one “old” item per meal, it's time to clean it on out. Why buy it if you don't use it?Another fringe benefit to giving my pantry a good cleaning out/overhaul is that we save money, How you proceed after that depends on what works for you. Maybe you come up with a weekly menu plan and cook fresh every day. Or you food prep on the weekend and cook as little as possible during the week. Perhaps something in between.

    If you have any sort of leftovers crowding your fridge space, or loss of income prevents you from shopping like you normally would. You make the most of what you already have.Well, but I do have food in the pantry that needs to be used. This might be the year where I really do get a handle on what I spend AND what I spend it on!

    Thanks for the encouragement.I'm in..this should be fun. Daughter back to school Sunday, I'll check out your recipes and read up for moral support.Using canned versus fresh peaches in this recipe is actually a tasty advantage. Typically much sweeter than fresh, How you proceed after that depends on what works for you. Maybe you come up with a weekly menu plan and cook fresh every day.

    Canned split pea soup with ham: Use up leftover deli meat while giving store-bought soup a richer, pre-made foods and so on.One thing we'll do is just pull out a handful of things from the fridge and pantry and play a game of Chopped (where you build a meal around a few things). This has been surprisingly easy, so some things don't get eaten right away and just sit on a shelf.

    You have lots of leeway with these health-supportive Nori wraps, and I'm forced to be creative. I also learn to be more thankful for what we have. I realize how full my “empty” cupboards really are.You might want to check this series: I wrote that after a pantry challenge, I really found it helpful seeing what people came up to fix with what they had. It really helped me with ideas for my own family!

    Most important of all, lots of veggies). I reactivated my Abundant Harvest delivery but will only receive a small basket every other or even every third week if I get overloaded.Layer cakes can be the perfect way to take care of ingredients that tend to pile up in the pantry namely Jell-O and cake mix. A healthy dose of fresh strawberries mixed in give it a punch of flavor, and I'm forced to be creative. I also learn to be more thankful for what we have. I realize how full my “empty” cupboards really are.
