Eating Out of Your Cupboards Made EASY

Eating out of the cupboards is one of my all-time favorite money-saving tips. While it’s a solid tip sometimes it’s easy to be at a loss for what to make with all that random stuff just hanging out on the shelves. How do you make it all come together? That’s where this site comes in… it’s called My Fridge Food and you check the little boxes of what you have and then it shoots out meal ideas along with the nutritional information!


I marked that I had: beans, bread, tortillas, and peanut butter. I was curious what it would come up with. It revealed many recipes along with items that I was missing for each recipe. I liked that it didn’t just say, “Sorry, you’re out of luck. Didn’t you mean this?” (You know how Google does that if you misspell a word?)

It helps jog your mind about some things to make and I will definitely be using this tool often.

Also, love this photo project about people and their refrigerators.


How do you come up with meals when the food is low and you’re eating out of the cupboards? Do you know of sites similar to this one?

    Hi Anna,
    I came across your site and it, along with my brother, has encouraged me to do something about my finances NOW! Thankfully, I don’t have any debt but I have nearly zero money saved!!
    Starting May 1st things are going to change around here and the first thing to go is eating out so this “Eating out of your Cupboard” will be a way of life.
    Similar to the site you list I’ve used and it’s very helpful with all the random stuff I usually keep in my fridge and pantry.
    Wish me luck!
