Love seeing all the photos.  This is my pantry but you can't really see my supplies.... they are in the drawers in the first photo.  TMX home is on the other wall of the pantry.

I have just been through the shopping bills for June and all up I spent $458.63 for the month. An average of $114.65 per week.
I am very happy with this.

I'm setting myself another challenge this month and that is not to buy any more hand cream, body lotion etc.
After taking a pantry inventory, I looked in the vanity and have seen all lotions there. I have been given several as gifts but have still bought the majority of them. Want to use it all up by WA retreat so i can buy some of MJ's products.

Life is full of challenges Michele LOL.  I could say the same as far as buying DH trousers and winter tops - he has so many that I must walk through men's clothing now with my eyes closed. I guess it all boils down to the fact that we like spending money.

Jude, I love the idea of drawers in your pantry. I wish my kitchen had more drawers than cupboards.
Michele, you pantry looks pretty tidy to me.
I have just been to the market this morning and spent $74  on milk, fruit, veges, nuts, ham, eggs and bacon. This brings my total to $122' but will need bread later this week. So far, so good.

Thanks ladies.  Those drawes hide a lot!  My kitchen is small, minimalist galley style so the pantry is my messy happy place. :)

I should be posting these in the kitchen thread. It's hard getting a full photo of such a small narrow area. The first two photos are looking down from the pantry, the other two are looking up the other end. I can shut the door on the pantry and it just looks like it might be a cupboard. Very handy for hiding the messes :)

Jude, lovely kitchen.

Some shopping today, I have $235 for the fortnight. Most of my shopping will be done this week & monday.

Too hard menu planning for next week, 1 week at a time is easier.

Aussie Farmers dairy bill will increase, eb drinks a lot of milk. Hoping not too much extra on veg & fruit. I have some tinned fruit & frozen berries, some frozen veg & tinned corn & of course tomatoes, canelini beans etc. So will try & use what we have withut spending too much extra.

I have a feeling 2 boys at home with school holidays, they are going to eat more, cold & hungry.
