Jodi’s 2014 Food Storage Resolutions

Food Storage Resolutions
Last week, Julie shared her 2014 Food Storage Goals with you, and now it's MY turn. I have always loved setting goals, but definitely struggle with the follow-through. So this year I'm going to be using these cute worksheets to help me come up with steps to start working on them asap and to really detail WHY I am doing these goals. I hope this will help me to keep referring back to them and working on them throughout the year. Try one new recipe per week. Sometimes I get in a cooking rut. I actually LOVE to cook and love to try new recipes. But I HATE how stressful it feels with four little "helpers", busy busy afternoons, and picky eaters. It sort of zaps the fun out of…

Julie’s New Years Food Storage Resolutions

Food Storage Resolutions
So people keep telling me it's 2013 but I barely believe it. I started out 2012 sick, and pregnant and moving into a new house. If you're thinking you're reading the same post from Monday you aren't. Both Jodi and I had babies and moved last year. Starting out 2013 with a fresh slate (and not having morning sickness) feels invigorating. In 2012, I felt happy to just survive. This year I'm excited to make some progress and learn new things. GOAL #1: FINISH ALL BUCKET FOODS EXCEPT WHEAT After several years now of eating my food storage, I think I've figured out my style.

Jodi’s Food Storage New Year’s Resolutions

Food Storage Resolutions
2012 brought a lot of changes to my family ... at the beginning of the year we welcomed Baby #4 into our family ... and at the end of the year we moved into a new home. Both things brought us a lot of joy and happiness, and also a lot of stress and chaos. I'm excited for a fresh start in 2013 and have lots of plans for things I want to accomplish. Aside from the typical resolutions (lose the rest of my baby weight now that she is turning ONE, get myself organized and on a housecleaning schedule, etc.) I also have a few specific food storage goals that are important to me. GOAL #1: ORGANIZE MY PANTRY In my old house we used a coat closet in…
