Pantry Staples List for kitchen essentials

Having these ingredients on hand will enable you to make easy family recipes that even your kids can help with. You will save time and money because you will not need to eat out or have to run to the store to grab something and end up getting several other items that you can’t afford or don’t need to spend money on.

If you don’t have all of these items, watch for sales and stock up on the items that you need so you are not paying full price for the next time. Also, be sure to keep track of what you use most. If you go through a lot of something, stock up on that more than others.

Is there anything else you can think of that should be on the list? Please leave a comment with it and I will add it to the list.

We also made a printable Kitchen Pantry Staples list so you can go through and check it off to make sure you have everything.
