Our home has a small pantry in the kitchen right beside the refrigerator. Up until recently, this worked out well for us. However, with my new eating-at-home kick, there is alot more food in my cabinet now. I purchased these cabinets from Target for about $80 for both of them. It's so nice to be able to see what we have available to eat and plan meals.
Another idea that came to mind this week was the way I had been making my weekly menu. I had been creating the menu and then shopping. Now, I shop and use the purchases supplementing with fruits and veggies from the farmer's market to create meals. It's amazing how much money I save using coupons. Today I saved $50 at Publix.
