well a few months ago I got a deep freezer so $185 is what I spent on meat that was bogo so like close to $400 worth of meat is in there right now, plus a bunch of butter I got for like 60cent a box at the holidays,and 10lbs of cheese is in there too.
my cuboards have mostly grains in them, like noodles,spagetti,cereal ect. went to GFS and got the noodles, pb & nutella. get jelly, cereal,tortillas at the actual groocery stores,recently got a bunch of pb crunch at save-a lot for $1.49 each on sale. I also keep dry drink stuff in there. tea-bags, instant breakfast mixes, some kool-aid & coffee.
SO built me a lil pantry he got at menards for like $50 awhile back,like last summer. he didn't want to but I bet him I could go to the store and get a "todays savings of" $50 or more.if I did it I got the pantry. I wooped him with that one giant eagle had laundry detergent for half off and I had coupons. I spent $2 on 20 bottles lol.
anyways the pantry has a top and bottom. top half I store baking suplies (sugar,flour,choc chips,pudding & jello some mixes) most of which I just got over the holidays. bottom half I store cans.excess cans go under the kitchen sink w/ all the 2ltrs.
I've finally gotten to the point again where I can mostly just shop sales. it took me like 6 months to get back to this point, a lot of it happening this month.(last year was a rough one we depleted our stockpile before the baby was even born) ButI've spent like $500 total this month. We budget $400 in case there is something super good, I normaly only spend about $200 a month though. Before you ask it's me & him, a 6yr old, 2 3yr olds, and a 4month old (who I'm nursing). We also feed at least one meal a week to another family or two.
