Organic veggies, juices, and a frugal/earth-friendly idea for organizing a stockpiler’s pantry! Here are today’s finds:
1. Earthbound Farms Organic Spring Mix, 5 oz.
2. Organics Biologique Baby Arugula, 5 oz.
3. Minute Maid Premium Peach Juice, 59 oz.
4. Minute Maid Pink Lemonade, 59 oz.
5. Mott’s 100% Vegetable Juice, 64 oz.
6. Mott’s Applesauce, 6 pk.
7. Back To Nature California Lemon Cookies, 9 oz. (also Ginger)
8. Kraft Velveeta Pepper Jack, 1 lb.
I use the little cups of applesauce whenever I bake brownies or quick breads. Applesauce can be swapped for oil to save on fat calories! I do it all the time with boxed brownie mix & the applesauce is unnoticeable in finished products. These little cups are handy because they’re about 1/2 cup & I don’t have to open a big jar of applesauce. A frugal tip: Maximize the energy it takes to power the oven. If your main dish requires the oven, plan on also roasting some veggies and/or baking brownies or a banana bread. I try hard not to cook a single item in the oven!
After we’ve eaten our organic veggies, I re-purpose the clear plastic boxes + lids! The boxes work well in the pantry for rounding-up things like these NutriGrain Bars. I have a stockpile of NutriGrain Bars as a result of a Catalina offer of free milk. As you can see, the boxes stack well. I like that they’re clear so that family members can view the contents. In organizing the stockpile of bars, I’ve placed them in order of expiration dates. So, for a $1, I get my veggies and a pantry storage box, too! To all the other moms who read TFF, have a Happy Mother’s Day!
