In January of this year I participated in a Pantry Challenge where we attempted to eat from our cabinets, pantry, freezer and stockpile as much as possible and keep our spending for the month to a bare minimum. It was a lot of fun and actually pretty amazing to see just how little we could spend for the month. Another great side effect was starting out the year so far below budget!
I’m excited to be doing a Pantry Challenge again in January 2012 and I’d like to invite you to join in! I’d also love to find a few bloggers to co-host this event by hosting the challenge linky on their blogs and doing a post each Monday of the month.
Jan 2nd – Goal Week
Jan 9th – Update
Jan 16th – Update
Jan 23rd – Update
Jan 30th – Final Notes
This is not a “no spend” month, this is a “make do with what you have on hand and spend as little as possible” month. Everybody’s personal goals will be different and we can each set our own rules – the point is merely to challenge ourselves and start off the new year with a boost to our budgets! We’ll also 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?
If you’re a blogger and you’d like to help co-host this event, simply leave your blog name and info in the linky below and I’ll email you soon with the linky code and further details.
