My aim starting Dec, as I usually do this time of year, is to eat down what we have on hand and only stock up on super deals. Beyond the usual perishables there is very little that I will need to buy to complete these menus: hot dog buns, grnd pork, egg rolls/pot stickers.
My lease is thru May, and we'd like to stay here at least another year, until DS#2 finishes his transition program. If we must move (ugh!) then I don't want to have a lot of food to have to move. I plan on reaching out to the LL come March 1, allowing me plenty of time to relocate, if needed.
