(Edit: Sorry for the Monday Menu Plan on Wednesday. I logged on to write a recipe post and my latest menu plan was nowhere to be found! From what I can gather, WordPress ate my homework. No joke.)
Exciting news! We’re moving at the end of April (long story short, I’m not exactly sure where yet but I should know in the next few days). In preparation, I’m going to start whittling down our overstock of pantry items that I don’t feel like packing and dragging to the next apartment. This means that my grocery bill will be MUCH lower for the next few weeks with all the pantry shopping I’ll be doing. And maybe, finally, I can make a dent in the stockpile of canned schtuff I got right before Hurricane Irene graced us with her presence (or lack thereof, we lucked out)! For the most part I’ll only have to make a weekly trip to restock our perishables: milk, eggs & fresh produce.
When you move do you try to pare down your food supply so there’s less to haul, or do you just pack it up and pray stuff won’t thaw before you get it to your new freezer? Share with us in the comments section below!
