Zero Waste Pantry Challenge

Zero Waste Pantry Challenge

This is a sponsored collaboration with Woolworths

I’ve always done my own version of a ‘pantry challenge’ at various times in our lives.

Often when we are about to go on holidays, before big events like Christmas and Easter, or when I really want to save a few $$$ or save up for something.

I know everyone’s circumstances or reasons might be different. So I created this challenge with two potential goals…

Do your entire shopping for under $50 (for the hardcore) or at least save $50 on their average weekly shop.

Ultimately, this challenge is whatever you want/need it to be!

Why Do The Challenge?

While this challenge is designed to save you a bit of money in a week, it is also designed to help set you up to better plan and save money ongoing, through changing habits and better organisation.

That being said, the motivation for this time, of course, was of course to reduce waste! My big goal for 2020 was to reduce waste in as many areas in my life as I could.

The reason behind the challenge? Be more mindful of how we consume and shop.

It will help you to be mindful of food waste, encouraging you to try new and different foods and consider cultivating your own fruits, herbs and vegetables.

Challenge Yourself Anytime

You can do this challenge at any time. With the full guide in your hand, it will give you a step by step guide to doing this challenge.

However, I will be running this myself through IG stories and on my social accounts, where you can find this in real-time, or via my highlights reel after the fact.

In addition, I will be running threads in my FB Budgeting & Savings Group that you can join here.

The guide includes each step in details:

  • Introduction
  • One: Take Inventory of Your Pantry
  • Two: Create A Meal Plan From What You Have
  • Three: Write Your Shopping List
  • Four: Follow-Up & Make Changes
  • Meal Ideas
  • Organising Your Pantry
  • Automate Your Weekly Shop

It also includes FREE printables to assist in your journey:

  • Pantry Inventory Checklist
  • Weekly Shopping List
  • Weekly Meal Planner

Use these for your own personal use moving forward. You can also download them individually here.
