Your new team is really shaping up nicely. I commend you on how nicely you're starting good topics/threads.
Before I go to bed-- I have to say that when I enjoy a Yahoo group called Cindy's Porch. Her big thing is to "shop at home first". She is so right!
I tend to hoard food. I have this "thing" where I want to make a recipe when I see it... I am almost OCD about stocking my pantry with staples.
Now that I'm following this website's encouragement, I have learned to shop at home before compiling my grocery list. I have stopped buying duplicates of too many things. Plus, my impulse grocery buys are being used up. Like tonight...why did I buy that Trader Joe's Mango sauce? Hmmmm... the lid had dust on it! LOL
I have shopped from my upright freezer all month long-- cooking things I bought on sale, and forgot about. Oh yeah, I have a freezer inventory...but do I remember to update it? Nope!
So, that's how I have cut my grocery bill. Look inside my fridge, freezer and pantry and think up recipes based on what I have. If I'm stumped, I post a request on my foodie group and I find all kinds of ideas!
It's been a lovely weekend, but I'm shutting down and resting for a busy week at the high school.
