  1. Hi Rhonda,
    Looks good. In Feb. I am going to have a shop at home first meal Plan all month,
    Your pantry looks good.

  2. "a really awful meal from a Burger King after a very busy day" - I've had a few of those meals too! Your pantry looks nice and full. I need to start checking out Walgreens again!

  3. Rhonda, I love your pantry. Don't you just love looking at pictures of other people's pantries? I do! And their sewing rooms... :o)

  4. What a fab pantry! Mine is warm since all the heating pipes are in there. We insulated them but it is still too warm in the winter. I do keep things in there that are not effected by the heat and sometimes prop the door open with our trashcan to let the heat out into our living/dining room. Now that is being thrifty...lol!

    Have you found your spending has improved by keeping it recorded on your blog?

    Hugs ~
