Stock a Pantry

 

A pantry can hold more than a box of Annie's Mac & Cheese. More like it can hold 100 boxes. But forget about that and try to establish a more well rounded pantry that includes all of the staples you need for the bulk of the meals you're making. Before I established a well stocked pantry, grocery shopping was a complex puzzle each week. I stock up on these essentials once a month and it's amazing how much time it cuts off my grocery shopping on a weekly basis.
