I am still putting up (old timers term) the harvest but instead of waiting until Jan to start eating out of the pantry for the most part. I decided to start Oct 1st.
My goals are as following:
to make more room for what is still coming in, including turkeys and hams
to use food up so it doesn't go to waste ...after clearing my mother's pantry and having to throw the majority of it out it broke my heart because I know if she had been in a different state of mind she would have been feeding others with it.
to cut the budget as low as possible to finish paying off some of the bills. We have several medical bills right now due to my sickness and shoulder/arm injury along with back taxes and 2 loans. The last loan due to be paid off Jan 2017 and I am aiming to pay it off in 2015.
SO I also decided to hold my self accountable so I will post on here what we are eating and when we buy something what it will be.
Thankfully the weather is cooler now because this requires me to bake the bread for toast and meals.
