    Default new pantry setup

    Everyone:

    We're moving from CA to Fort Worth, TX in June. I'm going to be

    setting up house before my DH joins us at the end of August. I've been

    told by our moving company that they won't move anything in the kitchen

    except spices and especially nothing that has been opened. So I'm

    having to start over with my pantry. I'd like to keep expenses down

    but I'm still going to make my Costco run for meat and milk and such.

    I'm just wondering does anyone have a basic pantry list that I can look

    at or where to find one? I want to make sure I don't miss anything.



    Thanks,

    Dianne in Anaheim, enjoying her spring break

    Hi Diane,

    I lived in Long Beach and Alameda, California when I was in the service, and my father had Fort Bliss, TX as his homebase while he was in the Army.

    As for setting up a pantry, check out the website Hillbilly housewife.com. They have all kinds of neat information.



    Welcome to the group.



    Take care,

    Check out the "perpetual pantry" at www.flylady.net Flylady has a pretty big homepage plus links. If you have trouble finding the perpetual pantry, than just google "perpetual pantry flylady dinner diva" This list will give you a base to start from. While you're compiling your own custom list, also give a few moments to think about what you had in your old pantry that you didn't use and make a note not to buy it again or only buy it when you actually make the recipe that calls for it. My big thing used to be buying coconut milk (of all things) just in case I needed it for something.

    Default new pantry setup



    On Beach Street in Fort Worth (off of I-30) there is a salvage grocery store called Town Talk Foods. It is a great place to find overruns, label changed items, buyouts from closed stores, close dated items etc. You can save lots of $ there, although their stock changes all the time . . . if you see it and want it, buy then -- it probably won't be there next time.





    Many items are marked $0.59, but if you buy 2 at the same time, the price changes to 2/$1.00 and $0.79 becomes 2/$1.50, etc.





    I personally will not buy any repackaged items and am religious about checking expiration dates as they do sell close dated items (and I have seem some expired dated products which I avoid like the plague.





    Most 1 lb. pasta items are frequently 3/$1.00 which is when I stock uo the pantry.





    Good luck on your move!

    I think that you need to determine your own pantry needs. No two

    family menus/diets are alike, so your pantries should differ, as well.

    If you look at the list of staples from any well-meaning site, you will

    no doubt run across items that you just don't use. cornmeal is one for

    me. On the other hand, you also use things, regularly, that are

    perhaps not on the list, or would be under-represented if you followed

    a trusty guileline off the Web. I go through tomato sauce, for

    example. Usually, I prepare Italian dishes with it. Rather than

    spending an extra buck on the cornmeal that I won't touch, I keep my

    eyes peeled for good sauce discounts. If i find jarred spaghetti sauce

    that is cheaper than tomato sauce, i go for it, and save myself a

    little work in the long run. I just got a dozen decent-sized jars of

    spaghetti sauce at Aldo for a buck a piece, which is pretty good for

    me. If I would have stayed with a guideline, the discretion of others

    would have told me that I didn't need sauce, or that I had enough. That

    stach, however, will NOT see the end of school, LOL, so I think I'm

    okay...hope that helps! I hope, too, that your move is a smooth and

    very positive experience!
