January Eat From the Pantry Challenge

During the month of January, I will be joining Money Saving Mom & Life as Mom in an Eat from the Pantry Challenge. I have spent the last couple of months purchasing food at rock bottom prices and stocking my pantry & freezer. Since I meal plan Monday - Sunday, I am going to start the challenge on Monday 1/4/10 and go until Sunday 1/31/10. I will still go to the grocery store but my only purchases will be dairy, eggs & produce. I am going to limit my grocery shopping to once a week with a budget of $10.00 a week. We will still plan a few dinners out and my son's birthday is in January so we will probably make a few exceptions for that. I have never done this before so I am a little nervous. Over the next couple of days I am going to take inventory of my pantry and plan all of our meals for the month. Check back this weekend for a detailed list of breakfast, lunch & dinner meals for the month including lots of recipe links. I will still post my usual Menu Plan Monday each week during January.


  1. You can do this. It will be easier than you think. If there is a freebie at the grocery store, go ahead. I don't think that is cheating!

  2. Good luck with the challenge and great goals! I'm all ready to dive in starting tomorrow! Happy New Year!

  3. $10 a WEEK!!! Wow! I'll be back to see how you do - that is some serious commitment there! :)
