Roadkill Week.....

January 15th, 2008 at 09:55 am

We have tried a new strategy in the menu/grocery department. We have gotten the grocery bill down and holding steady. The next thing was to figure out how to manage what we have bought and stashed. Enter new idea. We designated the third week of each month as eat out of the freezer/pantry/fridge week. And no cheating by buying up a lot of stuff the week before. The idea is to use our heads and be creative with what we have left from the other weeks. When I proposed it to Hubby and outlined the first week's menus, he thought it was a good idea. And true to form, he caught me off guard with a funny. He said it was a good idea--Roadkill week! I had to laugh. The menus are going to be much better than that. But, this way it sounds much more fun....

    Sounds like a good plan. Why week 3 rather than say week 4??

    Lux, I don't really know why we picked that week. I didn't want it to feel like leftover stuff week like the last week of a month would feel like. I wanted us to think of it as being frugal and fun. We have to remember that week 2 and 4 are big trash weeks where we have to organize what goes out on those weeks. So, I sorta picked week 3 so I could work with it better. Random, huh?
