My February Project

Most of you know that I do a lot of couponing and a lot of stockpiling.  Some of the blogs that I read had a challenge for the month of January called "Eat from the Pantry".  Basically, you allow yourself a certain dollar amount for dairy, produce, etc, but you plan and eat all of your meals for the month from your pantry.

I have decided, that for the month of February, the Fields family is having their own "Eat from the Pantry" challenge.  My pantry and freezer are overflowing to the point that I do not have anymore room.  This includes the shelves in the basement.

So, tomorrow I will be taking inventory on everything we have and planning around it.  I have set a $40 a week limit on my spending at the grocery store.  I will be getting cash and using that and when it is gone, it is gone.

This project will accomplish a few different things.  First, it will force me to be creative in my menu planning.  Second, it will clean out a lot of space in my cabinets and freezer.  Third, it will save us even more money.

I will be documenting our daily meals with commentary from my family (always entertaining, huh?).

Anyone else up for this challenge with me?

A Word of Warning on the Cereal Deal

I stopped by Kmart today to get in on the cereal deal that I previously told you about. I got 8 boxes, had coupons to match all of them and checked out. My total came to $9.70. It didn't seem right, but I just went out to my car. Once there, I reviewed my receipt and realized that they only gave me 4 boxes at $1.50 and 4 were at $2.50. I marched back in, determined to get my $4.00 back. I spoke to a nice woman at customer service and she called a manager. She told her she wasn't sure why it didn't ring up right, but to refund 4 and then give me 4 at $1.50 each. Another manager then came over and showed us a sign that is in front of the cereal that states only 4 boxes per order would come up at that price. There was NOTHING in the sale ad about this. Had I realized, I would have done 2 orders and had no problems. Anyway, in the end, the nice customer service woman was so confused on what to do, I was still shorted $2.00. But I had already spent way more time than I had planned in there, so I told her I wasn't going to argue over $2.00 and left.

SO! Be aware that if you have enough coupons to do more than 4, split it up into seperate orders. Also, you have to buy 4 in order to get the 4/$6 price otherwise they are $2.50 each.

Good Luck!

Great Cereal Deal!
