    You're gonna need some protein. LOL I could definitely put the beans, quinoa, tomatoes, corn, and one of the salsas in a pot together and eat on that for a week. Good luck.

    you sound like you have a months worth of staples easily, I think you can make it with money left over,
how fun, and me too, why don't I use what I have instead of adding to it all the time, great challenge,

    You could make some meals out of the beans, rice and salsa. I am not a part of this challenge but I have been working on decreasing amount in my freezer and pantry. Good luck! emoticon
