Not sure how to do this?
We got soap and pet food at Target, larger packages than normal. DH bought several week’s worth of coffee, mail order. Both of these impact what we’ll buy at the supermarket, but neither of them are the veggies that I set aside money for, unless you want to talk about the coffee beans. But I have done this before, that is, buying larger package of both these items at Target, it’s the kind of thing I use Target for. It’s certainly not worth it for regular groceries, the only Target stores are > 1 hour away from here.
I’ll just keep track. I want to see if buying in bulk, where possible, can actually save us money. And the point of doing it now is to get me used to the tracking before Jan. 1.
I will have carried over inventory, no matter what. Replacing that in 2021 and what it costs or doesn’t is the point. I’ve drastically cut what we’re storing in the past few years. Most of it was so old it wasn’t usable. There was an out of the way stash I’d forgotten about. That’s gone. The old laundry soap, furniture polishes, popcorn, split peas, etc. were hauled to the dump. Another two major culls happened in 2020, one in lockdown and one afterwards.
I just don’t want to store stuff anymore. We’ll see how this plays out!
