 :) Our butcher does it for us.

My friend owns 2 fishing boats, so we buy fish in bulk direct from her.
Other friends have a barra fish farm, so we buy barra from them, 20 kilos at a time.

When i can, i buy chicken in bulk, 10 kilos.

Bulk buying is a big money saver in the long run. I buy lots of things in bulk to save money. Especially with a large family nothing goes to waste.

wow you ladies you  are getting organize   :) l love it  :)

 you have inspired me as  l am bit of a hoarder l cant help myself when shopping,  with the stuff that is on special
 l  like to have a well stock fridge, freezer and pantry  i tell myself that l am saving money in the long run  but when stuff get lost in the freezer or back corner of pantry
 l think what a waste of money , l should not buy it       but l still do
 its a great idea to use containers had not thought of that and l love the idea of writing down whats in there  hopefully that way you can keep track of things
 you have inspired me to tackle my chest freezer
my dh will be surprised as the ice is so thick on the freezer walls
 
now has anyone got any ideas of how to organize  a deep corner pantry ?  :) :) :)

Most of  my  pantry is all in tubs too, it works well, but others dot out things in tus r the right tubs sometimes, i have a big onecat the botton for oils, soya sauce, vinegars etc. Then have other tubs for ther things. It needs redoing, but i felt  good doing the freezer

 :) I have a list blue tacked on my pantry door, of what is inside, when i use it, i cross it off.

Organisedhome.com has some great tips, and worksheets, printables to help you.
I use their sheets for inventry on freezers, pantry, shopping lists.

You can also google shopping lists, and download and print. Then keep on the fridge, and add things as you use them.

I need to do that with my freezer! Thanks for the tip Robyn.

Pork larb. Used up the pork mince, lettuce from the garden, lemon grass from the freezer and peanuts from the pantry.

 One freezer is empty, the other is 1/2 full. Meat order coming today. No freezer meals left, so feeling good, a clean slate to start cooking again :)
