I am curious to know how you keep your pantry and food storage organized?? Wanna let us in on your secrets to keeping track? I could definitely use some guidance in this area.

Ooh, good question. I've been considering posting about food storage for quite awhile. Do you mind if I hold off for a week or two? Then I can do a super in-depth series on food storage.

So $19.28 for a weeks worth of groceries? Seriously? Can't you just grocery shop and cook for me?

Love y ur organization and HELLO! your budgeting skills.
Miss you!

You are amazing! I can't believe you spent under $20! Way to go!

Rachelle said...

Thank you both! I'm always happy when the dinner ingredients cost less than $20! Of course you can't forget that it's only possible if you also stock up on sale items for your food storage each week... Good luck on your own shopping!
