I am fairly sensible in m u shopping. I do a sort of half meal plan thing too but on the whole I am pretty organised with my food provision. I have a big gap in my knowledge though. The only way I know what I have in my freezers, fridges or cupboard is to check or to try to remember (pretend to remember might be a better way to put it). A new notebook is required! I am going to go though my food storage at the weekend and do a stock count. AFter we re-organise the kitchen I will have a larder (just waiting for the guest bathroom etc to be finished first)so its a good diea to get into this habit whilst I still have small storage space. Goodness knows how much I could lose in a bigger space!
