I ran across this eat-down-the-pantry challenge from one of my new favorite blogs. It reminds me of something we do here.
I'm probably going to eat down my pantry this next week or two. I realize I've got soooo much stuff and soooo much food already. Why not just buy milk and veggies and see what we can come up with? Maybe it's the spring cleaning bug. I'm ready to clear out the old and have some empty spaces in my house, whether its the basement storage or the pantry shelves.
I admit I have another motive. Hubby bought me a way too expensive mother's day gift ( a $2,000 laptop computer. I'd be happy with a $500 one, but he's a computer geek so low end is not an option for electronics. Sigh), so now I have to figure out how to pay for it. I thought about returning it, but my mom said not to. He never buys me gifts, and he told her it's because I never like what he gets. She thinks if I send it back, I'll never get anything again!
Oh well. So yeah, trying to pay for it out of cash flow by mid-June. We might be able to do it. If I cut on groceries, send all my freelance checks to the CC, and some of the next paycheck, that might do it. We'll see.
In other news, the pantry challenge might be good because garden season is ramping up and I have a lot of canned goods still from last season. Might be good to empty some jars and clear some room for this year's harvest.
Unfortunately, planting is on hold another week as we have a cold front coming through. Crazy weather this year. So, I have a bunch of plants sitting in limbo.
But, the perennial onions are doing great!
