Kitchen Inventory!

I am so glad I snagged this idea from my friend, Elizabeth! I did my kitchen inventory today and just typed it up. I think I can make a lot of meals with what we have so I can cut the grocery budget for June. I also realized we have barely any fruits and veggies in the house. How terrible! I'm not too sure how that happened...I just didn't think to buy any this week since we weren't going to be home much. Guess I'll be making another trip to the store soon! So this will be a really long post but here's my FULL kitchen inventory. Fridge, Freezer, Pantry and Spice cabinet. I'll update it as we use things or go shopping. Hopefully I can just use mostly what we already have! Oh and for the weird things in my freezer. I've decided I hate wasting the leftover tomato sauce and stuff so I've been freezing small portions. It actually works out great if I just need a tablespoon or something in a recipe.
