Episode 46- What Do You Need to have a Well-Stocked Pantry?
Using the Feed Your Family Tonight Grocery List Builder, Marie walks us through the things she considers pantry and refrigerator staples. You can get a free copy of the Grocery List Builder at FeedYourFamilyTonight.com/list.
You want a pantry that has the staples you use and is not cluttered with things you rarely use.
This is what Marie keeps on hand. It will not be the same as the foods you need to keep in your home, but create a system to keep track of your staples so that you are not out of a key ingredient when you need it.
