Blog on saving money and living on a budget in CT.

When we moved here, my mountain of white rice, mostly from Angel Food, came with me. I must have had 2 gallon jars plus more. I have been actively working on using this up, as I prefer brown rice for nutritional reasons. I removed my last gallon jar from storage, to refill my quart Mason jar in the kitchen. That second gallon jar is now empty! While I probably have 2-3 family sized meal's worth of white rice remaining, these empty jars are proof that my planning efforts are working, we're using stuff up, food is not being wasted. I still have brown rice, Basmati rice, Arborio rice on hand. We'll move to those varieties soon. My budget also thanks me.
