How to stock your pantry

So, how does buying all of those groceries and keeping them around save you money? Think long-term. For one thing, you will rarely, if ever, have to make a last-minute grocery run. For another, you can take advantage of sales and shop to replenish your pantry (buying in bulk and cooking from scratch costs less). And if you know you can put dinner on the table less than 30 minutes after you've gotten home from work, you may be less tempted to keep buying fast food on the way home.

My latest article is up at Work It, Mom!, and it's all about what you should keep in your pantry and why. Interested in revamping your grocery list? I've also written up a printable checklist of things to buy to stock your pantry perfectly.
