For the love of food....



and maybe organization. In March I started a new way of grocery shopping, actually shopping period. It all began in January, our Bishop challenged all of us in the ward to go for one week without going to the grocery store. We got creative, dug deep into the cupboards and the deep freezer and made it that week. I also realized that if I had been asked to go 2 weeks or a month we would've eaten a lot of rice and spaghetti sauce (probably not a bad combination). Then came the monthly dry pack canning with the ward, we started with rice, moved onto pasta, milk, flour, sugar, this month it's beans and the canning continues. Each month we also have a lesson on provident living, March's was on coupon shopping. I learned of a website that watched the sales of a few local stores and combined them with the coupons from the Sunday paper to get the lowest possible prices on items and to stockpile them for a 12 week supply (email me if you're really curious, I love to share, yourshaderep@msn.com). I'm addicted, our cupboards runneth over and our checking account is barely feeling the pinch! Now to the picture....I've wanted to purchase a canned food rotation system for quite some time, we finally had the need with so much canned food items our pantry shelves were boughing, and thanks to craigslist I found one for an amazing price. So, for the love of food, organization and being prepared here it is!
