My Pantry

So some people have been asking for some pictures of what I Stockpile
this is what I NEED for My Family {yours maybe different}
but I however make Breakfast everyday
pack 3 Lunches 5-6 days a week
and make Supper 6-7  nights a week
like I said this is what works for my family
I love knowing I can just go shopping in my basement
if I need something made right quick....
At the end of every month I take inventory and make a list of what I need
and I start looking for the deals
 I don't and won't stock more than 10 of any items
Food Expires....and EVERYTHING goes back on sale again...

See It's not Hoarding
It's a Stockpile
 This is my cube freezer in my basement
it holds my veggies,pasta,bread,breakfast items,etc

 This is my stand up fridge/freezer in my basement
this freezer is for meats ONLY
YES I own 3 freezers.......

And these are my New FREE shelving
my work was getting new ones
and I saved them from the bad bad garbage man.....
So when hubby gets time I will be organizing My Stockpile again
I would do it but they need cut down they are to tall for my basement
Hope this helps you get some ideas....
Don't Stock it if you Ain't gonna use it!!!!

Dr.Suess 1st Birthday

My friend saw this cake online
 and wanted to know if I would make this for her son's 1st Birthday.....
This was a really fun cake to make because it's Dr.Suess
 you can really do whatever and it will look amazing!!!!
Happy Birthday Caden....

Free Lighting

So a couple of weeks ago our electric company called
and my husband answered the phone and said
           that the electric company is on the phone,
didn't you pay the bill?
 then you wouldn't have any power...
So I talked to them and they said they are giving away FREE lightbulbs
 heck yeah sign me up....
And these lightbulbs will also save on our electric bill as well....
