Alot of food to use up

I go through my food every once and a while. I think I am going to start doing it monthly. I have a ton of food to use up in the first couple of weeks. What i did was use a bunch of coupons one time, so it was a lot of boxed goods. I don't think I paid more then like .15 for each item after sale and coupon. Anyways I haven't really cooked seeing as I do alot of home cooking. So now I need to make a menu and eat a ton of sweets with in the next week.


So my question is do you ladies do a monthly check up on your goods? My answer is now I am going to.


I am going to be frugal and use it up. At least I got a great idea to make DH fudge for V-day.;0

I thought about the spread sheets. yeah I don't really eat packages goods. But I guess for the next couple of weeks I will. But I refuss to eat those nasty boxed potatoes. LOL we tried them last night and they aren't the same as real potatoes at all.

I agree with you on the instant potatoes - yucko! However, if you haven't thrown them away in disgust yet, you can still use them. You can use them to make potato bread, or potato soup (Or just use as a thickener in a veggie soup). You could try making Shepherd's Pie using them. I think if you baked them in a casserole style they might not be bad.

I almost threw them away. I figured I would just find a way to use. Thanks for the advice on how to use them. LOL. How would you use them in a potato soup?
