Eating Out of the Pantry In April
Whoo! So our yard sale is over, Once A Month Cooking is over but no worries we have lots of fun things going on here at the Jordan household. Looking ahead, in about a month we will be heading to Daytona Beach for a month. We take this trip annually with the college ministry we work with. We will be living there alongside over 100 college students doing ministry together, it makes for a wild experience! Knowing we will be leaving in a month's time, gave me the idea that we should probably eat down the staples, stockpile, and Once A Month Cooking that we have on hand before we leave. So we will be eating out of our pantry for the rest of the month of April and into mid-May. This means that we will make it a goal to spend only $20 a week for our household and grocery needs/essentials. I am looking forward to this challenge that we have previously taken on, both in November and January.
In addition to taking on this challenge, I would also like to have a Once A Month Cooking day before we go to Daytona. It will be helpful to have some food on hand when we get there while we get settled for our stay. I have enjoyed our previous experiences of Once A Month Cooking in February, March, and April. The great thing about both Eating Out Of The Pantry and Once A Month Cooking is it can be tailored and adapted to your families' needs. I was very intimidated by both initially, but after trying them they have really served our family well. If you are going out of town for an extended period this summer or just need to eat down some of your stockpile give the Eating Out of the Pantry a try!
Have you ever taken on the Eating Out Of the Pantry Challenge? If so, how did it go?
