Angel, did you all get the big winter storm that has paralyzed Atlanta? We have been eating out of the pantry this week as roads are only now passable-ish and the grocery stores are about out of eggs and milk. Maybe you all were used to this in NY. School has been out at all local schools all week! I am loving my pantry and freezer right now! FYI, if you are looking for a good way to track your grocery/coupon savings and spending check out the free savings tracker here http://thecouponproject.com/downloads/savings-tracker Also, southernsavers.com has great heads up on weekly sales at pretty much every southern grocery store.

Marjorie - yes! I know about the Savings Tracker! I just started using it this year. Excellent tool; I was going to post about it.

We have not been crippled by ice the way Atlanta has -- just 3-4 inches of snow. It's stuck around, but melted off the roads. (In NY they have snow removal equipment. So the latest storm up there dumped over a foot of snow, but it will be off the roads in less than 24 hours.)

Of course I feel like a dork after writing the pantry post because I wholeheartedly endorse having a well-stocked pantry! Oh well. Maybe someone understood.

Marjorie

You did not sound like a dork!!! I totally understood what you were saying. I just wrote a myopic comment focusing only on the full pantry because I am currently having cabin fever. (The girl's school is closed - along with the rest of the Metro area - for the 4th day!) Once upon a time I worked with a woman who was Russian Orthodox and she shared how they ate no dairy, meat, or eggs during Lent. How rich Easter would seem! I love your idea on using Advent to fill the pantry with the special foods for Christmastide. We avoid any Christmas food/activity before the 25th and I am always ready to have parties and celebrate during the 12 days of Christmas when everyone else is tired of Christmas and ready to pack the decorations away. I'm with you :-)
