I am less than a week away from starting my great grocery money saving adventure. Before we start I should know what we already have right? This weekend it is inventory weekend. The kitchen will benefit too as I am about to take everything out of the cupboards and see just what we have, what needs to go, and give them a good wipe down while I am at it. I’ve posted a couple pictures of the pantry which is very well organized (the other cupboards not so much). I’ve been working on stocking up over the last month with a couple items, practicing looking for sales!
I know we have backups of things we use regularly, usually condiments, and at least half a dozen jars of pasta sauce and bags of pasta, among cupboards full of who knows what else. This will be the start of our Inventory List. I will review this list weekly when I shop and flip through the sales with the intent to purchase everything (as much as possible) in the future, on sale. I told you previously here that we were working on a grocery list that worked for our family, with things we use regularly and what we buy weekly and what sales we want to watch for. This Inventory List will help us complete that and the “Watch for Sales” area. We hope to share our final family drafted list before we start September 1st.
