Since today marks the beginning of my goal to not go grocery shopping for a month, I thought it was a good day to begin a blog here at savingsadvice.com

Our pantry is overstocked and the fridge is well past the point of being considered full. My boyfriend only takes home cooked dinners to work about twice a week. We're both trying to lose weight. There's no real reason why this can't last us.
I'm allowing for stuff like milk and bread, those will definitely need to be restocked at least once during the month, though the milk may last for most of it. It depends on how much cooking I do with it. The bread is ridiculously cheap though since we get it at the bakery thrift store.

Not buying groceries will mean a bit more money to put towards our debts and savings, and that is definitely what we need to focus on at the moment.

The challenge/goal ends June 11th.

    Good for you! I'm living out of my pantry & freezer this month, too, but I didn't start out very well stocked, so it is getting very challenging. I have a little bit of $$$ to spend this weekend on essentials. I will have to shop carefully. Welcome to the group, it's a great place!
