I am in a nesting stage right now. Whether it is just my typical homemaking OCD kicking in or post adoption nesting is anyone’s guess.
Having a well-stocked pantry is essential to homemaking. It also varies by family and cook.
The cook who makes everything from scratch will have a very different pantry from someone who uses canned or pre-prepared foods as their base and a person with no children and gourmet tastes will have a different pantry from someone with 4 picky little eaters.
My goal in sharing this list of pantry items is that it help serve as a launching point for you to create a list of pantry items for your home. The idea behind a well-stocked pantry is that by having one you will always have the essentials on hand to make meals for your family. Savvy homemakers also utilize a well-stocked pantry to lower their monthly grocery costs.
Baking Powder (small container)
Bread (sandwich, pita, hot dog, hamburger)

How to create your own Well-Stocked Pantry:
2 Look over your grocery lists for the past month. Do you see any repeating patterns? Consider those items for your own well-stocked pantry list.
3 Always arrange your pantry shelves so that the newly purchased items are in the back.
