Starting Today!

Earlier this morning I post that I would be joining the Eating from the Pantry Challenge. After reading some others that have linked to the challenge I have decided that I will be starting this challenge TODAY.
We are really stressing about taking the $5800 out of our savings account to pay for our new furnace. I know it will take us awhile to get it back but why not just start the challenge now. We will be eating for out pantry and freezer. I will have to still go to the store for things but am hoping to not go over $60.00 a week. Right now we are budgeting $400-$450 a month, which is way to much for a family of 4. At least I think. Please check back daily to see what we are eating and what I will be getting at the store.


  1. You can do it! I am trying to also do a spending freeze like you, so we'll see how that goes. I think this challenge will help me NOT say "oh, that's a good deal, I should get it!" We'll stay in touch!

  2. You can do it!! Good luck with the challenge! :)

  3. You can do it!!! There so many others to help encourage us...I'm trying the envelope system for January to see how that goes. I'm really hoping I stay in budget :)

  4. That stinks about your furnace. Good luck with the challenge- you can do it. Can't wait to see how you do.

  5. I think the challenge will be good for all of us. I have posted my challenge on my blog and look forward to seeing how every one does. I hope to put any extra in the bank to start my $1000 emergency fund. So wonderful you have the money to buy your furnance rather than charging it. Great job
