Observations about the Pantry Challenge.

I'm hand washing baggies and pots and pans daily. Doing this helps keep my sink shiny as I can't stand washing dishes in a dirty sink. Luckily I've been doing a load of laundry a day, otherwise I'd be running out of dish cloths.

My potato bin is finally empty of the last hairy potato. I wiped it out but do you have any ideas on how to get rid of the stain? Should I just start layering newspaper in the bottom of my bin?

I've only bought one twelve pack of pop since we started the challenge. It is now gone as we shared the last one last night. I really want to the grocery store to get more. And yet I want to cut my addiction to pop. We normally drink diet but still. I know it's not good for me. I've been making lemonade and orangeade to help with the cravings for something sweet.

We're almost out of milk so soon I will have to go grocery shopping. Even though I'm not perfect about strictly eating at home I can so see the difference in the amount we're saving on food. Getting the pantry and refrigerator less cluttered is great too.

you're doing great!
One thing I keep in mind when I crave soda is, "that is liquid candy. I am drinking not a beverage, but candy." Diet coke is diet candy.

I gave up coca-cola a couple of years ago. I wanted one every single day for over a year. I remember the first day I DIDN'T want one. It is hard, but worth it.
