No shopping for a week, part 2

December 4th, 2009 Comments off

Well, assorted things going on kept me from updating this blog for a while, sorry about that.

I’m edging up on week three of no shopping, except some essentials like bread, salad, milk, etc. This exercise makes you realize how much food you have in the house, hidden away in freezers, pantries, cup boards and who knows where. Pretty amazing and I’ll be adjusting my shopping habits quite a bit, it makes little sense to have this much food in the house.

I think it’s probably more interesting to read not only my experiences, but those of other too, so instead of repeating my posts on egullet, head on over there and read the entire thread, it’s located here:

No shopping for a week

We ate very well over the last 2+ weeks, and I used my cookbooks much more than usual, which was fun too. I baked bread, smoked bacon, and cooked a lot of great recipes! I’d suggest you try this too sometime, just don’t shop for a week and eat what you have. A bit of a challenge at times, but you’ll be amazed how much you have on hand, and how much money you will save at the same time!
