The Freezer Challenge ended right before I left for The Greenbrier. Am I glad it’s over? Yes. It wasn’t easy. I was very strict for the first 30 days about not buying any frozen foods. Each day I used between one and three items from the freezer in my quest to create more space and to prevent food waste. After extending the challenge a few more weeks, I became a little lax about reducing my inventory every single day, but at least I didn’t compound the problem by purchasing more. I came close enough to completely turning over the contents of the garage freezer that I was able to wipe it clean. It was a good practice in self-restraint when grocery shopping and has made me more mindful of remembering to first check what I have before buying more.

Before leaving for The Symposium, I shopped for a few weekend necessities and stocked the kitchen for Steve and Scarlet for my time away. I also came armed with a handful of coupons.

Here are the healthy foods that I bought.
