No Grocery Store Trips in January!!

So our first tangible goal of the new year is to not go to the grocery store in January.  We will still go to the local farm where I get our milk and whatever produce they are harvesting now, which in January will be greens, brocolli, and cauliflower.  We will also still be going to The Granary, a local bakery that grinds their own grain and bakes fresh whole wheat bread daily.  They also stock some bulk items, like oats, flour, beans, spices and dried fruit.  Our third shopping option is Athens Locally Grown, a local market that provides local farmers a year round online presence to sell to consumers in the Athens area.  I also have a pantry full of winter squash, beans, canned tomatoes, and other things that I hope to use up during this month.  This idea began as a challenge to clean out the pantry, but I think by the end of the month we will see just how bountiful the land is year round if you are prepared for the leaner months.  It will be interesting to see what is on our grocery list on February 1 and if I have to go before then.

    HT is having super doubles this week – I think I will be able to skip the grocery store the rest of this month after this week though.
