So I'm jumping on his wagon of frugality and trying 29 days of cooking only what we have in house. Of course I will still make a weekly trip for milk, OJ, eggs and yogurt. I figure it's a leap year, why not. I like the sound of 29 days. To start, I had to take stock of what we have. That meant pulling out the camera and shamelessly showing you the disorganized state of my kitchen.
The fridge freezer main part is pretty minimal. We've run out of low-fat ice cream and have eaten most of the frozen muffins. All that's left are a few bags of go-to veggies and whipped cream.
That brings us to the pantry. Please don't judge for the disorganized look. I know where everything is. Really. Plenty of cans, grains and such. Now that I look at this section, I think maybe I ought to revisit the idea of spending an hour or so of my day organizing. Could be quite a few discoveries to be had here.
This top shelf is reserved for things that were bought on a whim. Not used often but I'm guessing they will be making an introduction on our dinner table (or lunch boxes) soon.
The floor also serves to hold several staples. This place is very short on storage so every bit of space counts. Though I've put in an order with my Dad to make me a potato bin. He's designing me a nice slimline one just for apartment living. This hold most of our root veggies and large bagged staples. Rice is the main staple for my husband.
And there you have it. Twenty nine days of making do. I think we can do it.
