Still, even with all that it took me probably 2 hours to inventory everything. Then another hour to organize it into what as usuable for dinners and meals for the month. I have our entire month of meals planned out. About half of them are straight from the house with no extra ingredients needed. The other half have minimal ingredients to buy. I am allowing myself $50 cash each week to spend on groceries so I can and will buy ingredients I need. But I am going to make the effort to only use cash-maybe even leaving the credit cards in the car so I can't fall back on them.
Here's what part of our pantry looked like:

Today we head out to Jamie's gymnastics class and to the library. Hoping we can continue to spend zero!
