Sunday Savings on the Homestead Week 1: Clean Out The Food Storage

Every Sunday I will be posting a Sunday Savings on the Homestead. This posts will concentrate on one money saving thing you and I can do to save money for the week. Some will be easy, some will be be a bit difficult, and all will concentrate on one way to save money for the week. Please join me in trying to live a frugal life in 2015!

Now let us all be real here. We all have food in our food storage and pantries that are close to the expiration date or past the expiration date. I am fairly organized in my food storage and I know I do.

Our Sunday Savings mission for the week is grab those foods that are about to expire or have expired, bring them to the kitchen, and use them up in our meals this week. This may mean some creative meals, but that is better than wasting the food!

A note of safety: You are your own best decision maker. The decision to use out-dated, expired food is up to you. If the packaging looks compromised in any way, I would not use it. If you open the packaging and the food does not smell, look, or feel right, don't use it. 

Thanks for reading!
