Cupboard Eating: One Month Grocery Shopping Strike

Let me tell you the story behind all of this Grocery Shopping Strike talk…

We are thinking of moving, so we are cleaning up the house and getting it ready to show. We did a couple garage sales and the like this past season in preparation and are just really “cleaning house”.

As you all know, we are serious foodies…We cook a lot of different types of ethnic cuisines and we cook so often – 90% of our meals, I would say.

Our Pantry - CookingWithKimberly.comBecause of this, we often search for deals, buy in bulk and try a lot of different ingredients. Two days ago, I was searching for something in the pantry and actually got frustrated not being able to find it.

I pitched this idea to my family: Let’s not grocery shop for 1 month – meaning no non-perishables. We can buy milk, butter, eggs, veggies, etc., but nothing else.

We are going to cook out of our pantry, cupboards, fridge & freezer for one month!

Not only will we be able to “clean it up”, we will need to be creative, which means some very cool meals coming up! Plus, it sounds like kind of a fun challenge to take on!

Our pantry, freezer & cupboards may be a bit more extensive than most households, but this is how we live.

I will be sharing with you our interesting meals and hopefully, we will need to come up with flavor combinations that might make you wonder if it could possibly create a tasty meal, but we’re going to do it!

I wonder if you and your family could take this challenge and “downsize”.

What do you think of our 1 Month Grocery Strike? Could you do it too?


I hope you enjoyed this Kitchen Organization Tip on Cooking with Kimberly! Until next time…

Eat Deliciously,

Kimberly Edwards 🙂
