Build a Frugal Pantry

Posted By Jessica Fisher On February 24, 2010 @ 12:19 pm In Budget Living,Good and Cheap Eats,Good Eats,URS | 5 Comments


In case you didn’t know, I’ve also got a recipe site [5]. Last year I realized that if I wrote about all the things that I wanted to write about, a large majority of it would be about food. And that’s not what this blog is about. So, Good — and Cheap — Eats [5] was born. It’s become a little place on the web for me to catalog my recipes and let the foodie in me have free reign.

True confession: I love food.

The Eat from the Pantry Challenge [6] was a great success for me personally as it showed me how much good stuff I had in my cupboards. And I thought, How can I be more purposeful in building a delicious — and frugal — pantry?

Some brain storming, some emails, and a cute button later, the Build a Frugal Pantry series is ready to go! Over the next few weeks some fantastic bloggers and I will be bringing you ideas, recipes, and ingredients for you to add to your shopping cart. Each week we’ll feature a different ingredient. And to coordinate the two blogs and my brain cells, Ultimate Recipe Swaps [7] will be synced with that Ingredient of the Week.

Here’s March’s schedule for URS:

3/4 – Flour
3/11 – Whole Grains
3/18 – Eggs
3/25 – Baked Goods that feature  leavenings (yeast, baking soda, baking powder, salt)
To kick off the Build a Frugal Pantry series, I’ve got a plateful of giveaways lined up. Pop on over and get a taste of some Good — and Cheap — Eats [5].
