Boost Your Budget Pantry Challenge ~ 01/23/12 Update

Eeeek...just realized that Week 2 recap of the challenge didn't post!

So here it goes with some editing...
A few of us at work have been doing the Sacred Heart Diet.  I decided to try it last week (1/16-1/22) as it helped use up most of the produce that we really needed to use.  The first batch of the soup wasn't a hit with the kids but my mom and I liked it.  The second batch I changed it up a bit and everyone seemed to like it better.  So not only did I loose weight but I found a new soup recipe!

I haven't been doing well with keeping with the goal for the budget but have been doing good otherwise.  The diet mentioned above requires fresh fruit and veggies.  So I wound up going to store a few times to get those items.  We did use up some of the stockpile so that is going well.  I can see open spaces in the inside freezer!

Recap of the Boost Your Budget Pantry Challenge 2012 version:

Denise at Shopper Strategy suggested this challenge as a way for us to support each other in giving our budget a boost by cleaning out our pantries. The general idea is use items in our stockpile and freezers to give our budgets a boost to start off the New Year. Each of us that are participating have set up our own personal goals/rules.  The Challenge is being co-hosted by myself, Shopper StrategyGoing Crazy Wanna Go?The Frugalista Chick, Matter of Cents, Thrifty Divas, Frugal Mom of Two, How About FreeTheItMom.comAll The World Is ArtSweeping The USA, Mommies Point of View, Mama's Money Tree, Crunchy Frugalista, Fab Find Foodie, Making Time For Mommy, Adventures in Coupons, Full Price? NEVER!, The Frugal Navy Wife, Generations of SavingsA Savings WOW!, and of course, Shopper Strategy

Each Monday during January all of us that are participating are going to post an update of our goals and how we're doing at meeting those goals through the linky below. Plus, we’re also going to be giving away a $25 Coupon Clutch gift certificate each week to one participant who either leaves a link to a challenge post or a comment about their challenge goals. Won’t you join us?

Congrats to Stacy from Adventures in Coupons for winning the $25 Coupon Clutch gift certificate last week!
