Every year in January and July, our family plays a real life game of Chopped. I shop the pantry first before I head to the store. After years of hosting it on both Life as Mom and my food blog, Good Cheap Eats, all the chatter is mostly housed on Good Cheap Eats.

This “eat from the pantry” challenge is a great way for our family to eat well, save money, waste less, and learn to be smarter shoppers.

If you’d like to do a Pantry Challenge of your own, these posts will help you prepare and see success in the endeavor:

The next Pantry Challenge runs from January 4 to 31, 2015. I hope you’ll join us!
