Meal planning during a Pantry Challenge is essential to its success.
We are a third of the way into the Pantry Challenge. I confess, I’m getting a little weary. However, yesterday’s Grocery Geek tally tells me we’re on a good track. If all things hold steady, we could end up saving a few hundred dollars this month on groceries.
I spent a little time on Friday thinking through our meals for the upcoming week. We have a lot of great produce on hand thanks to last week’s delivery, so that is dictating how we eat throughout the week.
