You know how I posted here that I was going to take the pantry challenge and just buy the necessities in order to use up my stockpile?
Apparently I lied. Or else just forgot.
There is something about having a lot of food in the house that makes me feel secure. I’m sure there is some psychological issue here that I need to figure out.
I did some shopping over the weekend and I now have as much food in the house as I did at the beginning of January. I’m still totally within my budget (and we reduced it again for Feb) but I have a lot of food.
I think part of the issue is that, after a while, it takes a lot of brain power to be creative and use up the food that I have left. And right now I don’t have a lot of brain power. Going to the gym early in the mornings kinda zaps me. By 7pm I’m wasted.
So. We have a lot of food. I won’t shop any more for the rest of the month, except for milk and fruit and veg.
Speaking of food I need to get some more work done in the kitchen. I feel motivated for some reason.
