If you read my blog, you have probably seen articles that mention “you can make this with ingredients you have on hand”. What that means is that the recipe uses staple ingredients that your kitchen should always be stocked with.
Having the essentials you need allows you to be more efficient. Not only will you be able to whip up last minute meals, but you will find that your grocery shopping trips are faster and more productive.
So what are these staple ingredients? Here is the list I use: Staple Grocery List. Feel free to make adjustments based on your own tastes and preferences.
Use this list when going grocery shopping. Everything is arranged by grocery aisle. When I’m making my shopping list for the week I quickly glance over the items on the list and circle or highlight things I have run out of. Then I’ll write in other non-staple items I need below their respective categories. This is a life saver, making my shopping trips extremely simple, and saving me time and money.
