I know Daisy has mentioned this the past few weeks and I just saw it listed on the CL board as an actual challenge that another board has done.

I am in such need of something like this.

I have a friend that for 2 weeks every couple of months they go into "no spending" mode. The ONLY thing they are "allowed" to buy is gas for work.

I'm determined to get mine down too. It's a good idea.

It's a great idea and I can honestly say that if I didn't have kids, I think it would be an easier thing to do. But I am working on the 8 cans of black beans:)

I agree, Christol.... I would probably be able to clean out my pantry & freezer a lot easier if I didn't have to please 2 other people in my house.

I used up nearly everything from my freezer a couple weeks ago and I have to tell you, its a little unnerving to open the freezer and have it be empty. My pantry, freezer and refrigerator were pretty bare. There is something comforting about having food there. I think that means I'm a hoarder at heart! I did have room to buy up some meat specials though. BLSL chicken breast, thighs and chicken sausage went on sale right after and I stocked up! It was nice to save some money on the grocery bill for a few weeks too especially right after the holidays.
