One of the statements I hear most often when talking with others about keeping a well-stocked pantry is, “I don’t have the money to buy groceries and stock a pantry too.” While I certainly agree that this is true for some, for most it is not.
Let’s see if we can find some funds in the budget for those in the ‘it is not’ category …
What could you add to your pantry by taking the money, or even a portion of it, that you use to eat out with each month? This includes meals, lunches, money you spend in the vending machine at work, breakfast you pick up on the way to work, lattes, etc.
Add up the amount … go ahead … I’ll wait …
One more thing and because you asked ...
I am a firm believer in keeping and maintaining a well-stocked pantry. I share my reasons HERE! I also believe that a well-stocked pantry encompasses so much more than just food. You can read what I consider my pantry HERE!
With these thoughts in mind, and after many requests from readers, I’m going to start a new feature, the first one will be starting Monday, where I present a scenario that will challenge you and help you be prepared for the things life throws at you. (If you were a member of the A Working Pantry Facebook Group (which is now closed), I did this on a regular basis so you will know what I’m taking about.)
