In January each year we do what’s called a Pantry Challenge, focusing on using up what we have instead of grocery shopping regularly. In this way, we clear out the clutter leftover from the holidays and inform our shopping going forward.
Each night, I post a daily log of what we ate and how I prepped or used up things to our best advantage.
