    A Well Stocked Pantry

    By: Patty Getz

    A Well stock Pantry contains….

    Have you ever wondered how some people keep their food bills down so

    low? Have you tried to learn their secrets, only to find that your

    store does not double coupons, or you just don't have the time to

    clip coupons for foods you don't really eat anyway.

    One of the best principles of grocery budget management aside from

    coupons is a well stocked Pantry. Having a well stocked pantry allows

    you to slide during lean times between grocery trips but more

    important even than that, it allows you to hold out for the really

    good sales, to add to your pantry. This principle can save you more

    money than just about anything. So what is a well stocked pantry? A

    lot of that depends on your eating style. I am going to share a basic

    pantry list with you, but for your own list, take the one I provided;

    cross out the things you don't use, and add in the things you use

    most, to the list. This list will help assist you in stocking your

    pantry, and give you some idea of what to look for in the sale papers

    each week. Once you have it stocked then it is a simple matter of

    keeping it stocked by catching the sales each week.

    Here is my well stocked pantry list.

    Dry BulkGoods

    •Flour(white, wholewheat, and bread)

    •Sugar(white, brown and powdered)


    •Dried beans (kidney, black, split peas white navy, garbanzo)




    •Soups (cream of chicken, cream of mushroom)


    •baking soda

    •baking powder



    •Maple syrup



    •dry milk

    •dry eggs



    •Olive oil

    •Canola oil

    •Canned veggies (green beans, corn, tomatoes, tomato sauce, tomato


    •Home canned veggies(variety)

    •Canned beans

    •Canned Fruit(pears, peaches, applesauce, pineapple)

    •Canned Meats

    •Mac and cheese

    •Peanut butter

    •Ketchup, mustard


    •Topramen noodles






    •Nuts (peanuts, walnuts, almonds)

    •Grains-barley, wheat


    •cake mixes

    What I keep regularly stocked in the Freezer








    For the Bathroom

    •Toilet paper


    •Shampoo and conditioner




    This list is by no means complete and may not match your list, that

    is ok, this is just a list to get you started. All of these things

    can be bought on sale, and picked up a bit at a time. Many of these

    items on this list are on here, because I can pick them up for super

    cheap on sale, like cereal and cake mixes. Pay close attention to the

    sales in your area, and add in your favorite loss leaders. I hope

    this helps you get a start on your pantry, and shows you how much you

    can save by shopping this way.
