Where has January gone? I’m getting a bit of a late start with my Monthly Shopping, due to the holidays and a trip I took with my daughter and her friends to an Anime Convention. I stayed at my first Air BNB! Usually when we go to this convention, I make our meals ahead of time, and we heat them up in the hotel. It was so much easier having a kitchen. We were able to be more casual with our meals which was nice. We popped popcorn one night, and watched the movie “Coco”. I love those kids!
Here is my January Monthly Shopping List:
You can read more about this shopping strategy in December’s Monthly Shopping post HERE.
The other photos in this post are from my kitchen, and show the various ways I store items I buy in bulk. I freeze all my dry goods for 24 hours, to ensure freshness. Many items I will keep in the freezer, and refill my canisters when getting low.
I plan to use my Amazon credit card points to get the nutritional yeast for FREE! There is a good deal I posted yesterday on nutritional yeast HERE. I often use Swagbucks and Amazon points to get FREE groceries.
We’ve been able to eat from our pantry and freezer this month, which is a nice benefit with The Penny Pantry System. Heck, we could probably subsist on beans and rice for the next year. 🙂
I still have kale in my garden to enjoy, and oranges from my tree. My neighbor brought me over a lovely bag of lemons. I have a lot of food in my pantry and freezer that will all go toward making various meals. My Monthly Shopping is to replenish anything we are getting low on for the month. This consists mostly of staples, and a few produce items that can store for longer periods than ones I will buy during Weekly Sales.
I will have a follow up to this post that compares my prices to those at my local chain grocery store, so you can see all the money you will save shopping this way.
Happy Saving! 🙂
