Today was a cold wet day. So I stayed home to keep warm,
after I did the school run and fed all the animals.
I decided that I needed to be more organised with my food shopping.
So I began making lists.
First I went through all my cupboards .
I have already brought four washing powders when they were half price.
So that is already a big saving.
Not enough room in the cupboards so bits on top.!
Still lots of pastas and rice left.
And this is all my baking bits. Completely full up. Still got jars of
mincemeat. Never got around to making any mince pies.
So must make some now....
I have two freezers. One is still full up and this one is half full.
Next I wrote everything I had down.
(Excuse the messy writing)
Then I made a meal plan for the next month.
Then worked out what I needed to buy each week.
Including food for the dogs etc.And toiltries.
Now I have a list for each week of exactly what I need to buy To
make all my meals. And lots of the meals I have arranged around what I have left .
I am determined to spend less but eat well. And try not to waste food.
I have done meal plans before but not to this extreme.
You are probably thinking this does not look like my kitchen .
You are right. I keep my food in my utility room which is open
to my kitchen. As I have no wall units in my kitchen.
Have you made any lists food or otherwise.
Would love to hear.
