Did you know that March is National Frozen Food Month? Which is very appropriate because I have decided to go on a grocery exile and use the food that I have in our freezers and pantry. I have mentioned before here about my little food hoarding problem. Well, since the birth of the baby I haven’t been very good about meal planning and using what I have. So food waste has been a little higher but not much. Not only that but I also think that I need to rotate some of the food I have in the freezer.
- Retake meal planning: I will prepare a weekly menu of Saturdays. Initially I thought of planning a menu for the month but then I thought it may not allow me to shop around grocery store sales. So, I will plan every a weekly menu and shop the grocery sales. I will post my menu on the right side bar to serve as a reminder and be accountable.
- No meat buying for this month. I will only buy the things that I do not have in my pantry freezer.
- I don’t have goals as to how much to spend or not spend. I will shop the sales and spend what’s needed.
I will post pictures of my freezer and will post grocery lists every week so I stay true to this plan.
