With the budget challenge out of the way, I’ve come to the realisation that I need to start a new, and more personal challenge. I’m somewhat of a hoarder when it comes to food, and with Christmas coming, I need some cupboard and freezer space.
I have a large pantry, and I have two freezers. All are full. If I see something on sale and it’s something that we like or use, I have to buy it. Often in bulk. And that means that I currently have far too much of certain items in my possession, and that they are taking up too much space. Space that I need to clear in order to store a turkey, and a duck, and certain other items for our family Christmas.
So my challenge this coming week is to not buy everything that we need, but to instead use up what we have in the freezer, and in the pantry. I’ll be making “make do” dinners instead, to free up that space.
Anyone who reads this-do you also struggle with over buying things, just because they are a bargain? How do you resist the urge?
