what we got list

We’ve made a really simple switch this past week. We pulled down the grocery list that lives on the fridge door and replaced it with a What We Got list, switching the focus from what we need (or want) to what we actually have living beyond the doors. This tiny little list has made a huge difference in our interactions with the beast that is the fridge. We’ve actually been working our way through all of our leftovers and managing meals without extra trips to the grocery store.

I’ll be interested to see how the habits keep up after the newness wears off and if it has any noticeable effects on my weekly shopping trip for staples and fruit. Shall report back on all that. Being able to glimpse at what we have in the fridge without having to do a major scour and dig has made this week’s meal plan a little easier, too.
