Can We DO IT?


(these pictures have nothing to do with the post, but I think they are fun, this is Will and Ky while we lived in Oregon. Yes this was taken in the month of January. Notice no jackets and playing outside, oh well.)
So I read this blog called moneysavingmom.com (you can link to it over on the side), mostly because she posts really good deals and coupons that she finds on the Internet. Occasionally she will do these challenges which I mostly ignore. But she is having one this month called "eating from your pantry" and I thought it sounded interesting and.....I think I am going to do it. I am not sure though, last year we did a challenge of not eating out for a whole month and it was hard, but we did it. But here goes nothin. Couple of reasons why I want to do this though, first its a "challenge" I like those :) Second, it will save on our grocery budget that maybe we can put towards our trip to Cape Cod this summer, and third, I think that it is a good idea to maybe clean out the pantry and use some of the food from it that I don't normally use. I am not sure how long we will be able to do this for and, honestly, I haven't talked to Brett about it. But I am going to try it anyways. I hope that I can do it :) No promises though.

I hope you can do it! We try this quite often, especially near the end of the month before payday. :) It is hard because usually my pantry is lacking at least ONE ingredient from each recipe (milk, cheese, whatever). Does she give allowances for that? GOOD LUCK!!!
