    When I was living in Utah, we used to donate a lot of our overstock items that we weren’t using fast enough to think we’d get through them before they expired to the humanitarian packages that the church put together.

    I like to try to use the stuff myself first, but if I can’t I try to pass it along to someone who CAN use it so it doesn’t go to waste before I get to it!

    Great post! I’m going to make this the week I use some of my stockpiles!!!

    Like you, I find bargains hard to pass up. At the moment, my pantry piles are threatening to ooze out into the hallway. Lol! Truth be told, I have no idea what’s back in there! Could be scary!!!

    Thanks for the nudge. :)

    Way to go only spending $20 on groceries. I like having pantry challenges like this myself, but still end up spending about $100 a month on milk and produce while doing it. Better than not doing it, but $20 is great.

    This is a fantastic article, thanks for sharing it! We keep a sizable stockpile and love it — money in the (food)bank. :-) Still, $20? That’s great. I could do it if I had to, but it would put a healthy dent in my stockpile. Thanks again for this!

    Fantastic suggestions in your post. I used to call this “eating out of the cabinets,” but the idea is the same. Most people don’t realize how much they really have. And, BTW, great looking site and articles!

    We are doing this very same thing right now. Although I think our pantry could literally feed us for over 6 months if it had too. Check it out.

    Hi! I’ve been doing this sort of thing for a million years!!! It REALLY works!!!! The other thing I do during this point is to make “freezer” meals…… sink soup for instance…..canned and fresh items…just starting to show a “little” bit of freezer burn, meat or veggies….etc. cook soups and freeze them for individual mealsdon’t forget to label them (p.s. don’t freeze with thourghly cooked pasta, rice or potatoes, finish cooking during reheating) This plan works……….just think OUTSIDE the BOX!!!! Have fun and be creative…………garlic and other spices always fix everything………..Terre

    Hey all….I have been doing this for so long, I cant remember??? LOL
    I have saved tons of money and keep saving since I only buy sale items, and I also use any coupons, as well as freebies. I have a huge stock-pile of canned items. The overflow is in bags:-S….On the floor of the cabinet, and Yes…..I rotate stock…I always have food to give to my Parents, and friends, if someone needs something.
    I also have a very large well stocked freezer full of sale meat, which I am so thrilled with, as I feel like I am at my own store when I “shop out of it” I would like to stress to others the Importance of buying a freezer, as you will save so much $$$. It will pay for itself in 6 months or so. I like to think that mine paid for itself in well under a Month, due to huge sales on meats.
    We eat well, and I am THRILLED on beating the grocery stores at their own game!!!!
    Please also watch the loss leaders, at your local grocery stores, as you can save a ton of $$$!!!
    Sunny :-D

    I love this! We definitely don’t have a lot of room in our pantry as we’re a big family of 8 but I do try to keep a stash of some stuff .

    Hubby lost his job last week so we’re going back to coupons and needing to go on a financial diet BIGTIME. Do you do coupon sense or a free service? I can’t spend ANY extra money but definitely plan to start clipping and matching things up to ads to get us through the tough times.

    I’m SO glad I have my wheat and powdered milk and a few other long term food storage items because now we’ll be using them!

    Great post, I love it!
