Stock Pile Meal Plan: December 9th-15th

This week’s meal plan will consist of using up a lot of the time we have in our basement stock pile. We call this a stock pile meal plan. Instead of going out to buy a full grocery, we will only purchase the basics. All the other ingredients should already be in our pantry or in our freezer. Let’s see what kind of meals we can come up with to save us even more money!

Stock Pile Meal Plan

We haven’t had time to run out for groceries – and also I’m not going to Costco on the weekend – so I don’t have an amount for you for this week. I will say that I am sure it is WAY under our regular budget. My trip to Toronto has really put food and meals into perspective when it comes to limiting what we buy. I usually like to have a variety of meals throughout the week, but I think that may have been the root to our food waste. We are constantly working on reducing our amount of waste.

By choosing meals that are more similar in terms of ingredients, I think we will do much better. From now on, we’ll also be adding an extra step before starting our new weekly meal plan. We will check what is left in our fridge and pantry and try to use those items that might go to waste if it is noted used immediately.
