Menu Plan Monday (on a Tuesday) - Week of January 30th, 2011

I'm a bit grateful that the pantry challenge is over, since we were out of several things - mostly by my own poor planning.  Fortunately nothing earth-shattering food-wise other than fruit, which we run out of regularly anyway.  Kleenex and feminine products were the problem as was shampoo - though I managed to make it through without buying shampoo until after the pantry challenge was over!  We can make do without crackers but we really like to have them on hand - yes, we're a wee bit spoiled like that! :)

That said, we still have  A LOT in the freezer and pantry - especially frozen veggies and things like rice, beans and pasta.  So we'll work on using those this month.  I'm also slowly working toward more of a true "stockpile" of 3-6 months of food.  We have several holes plus fruit and milk.  I don't plan on filling in the fruit and milk that much since fresh fruit and milk to drink are important to us.  The other holes are more important. And I'll share about those over the next few weeks in the Super Savings Saturday Posts.
