In the move, we ate up almost our entire pantry and freezer. And, then... We moved to a house with a seriously small pantry. So much so that I'm having to rethink my entire food procurement ideas. I've been one that keeps a large variety of food around, and now, I don't really have the storage for that. Until I get this figured out, I think that we'll be the "buy one snack food, eat it until it's gone" sort of people. This week, it's apples and popcorn. Eat up, my peeps!
The other problem with eating up my freezer is that I'm out of a variety in my freezer, too. Usually, when a meat goes on sale, I stock up with several weeks worth. So, each week, I tend to buy one or maybe two varieties of meat, and I have lots to choose from. Since that's not working right now, I'm slowly rebuilding my stock, and I'm relying on the old faithful frugal meals. Which means we're eating lots of beans, dairy, and whole chickens. Thankfully, we love those meals, and it's all good.
