Staple Grocery Items

At the end of the week, I begin planning the following week of meals for our family. I have shared a few posts on how we meal plan and what we prefer to eat. You can check them out here…

I thought I would share our “staple” items that I usually buy every week or keep on hand.  Of course we stay stocked on items such as condiments, baking necessities, etc, however I do not need to purchase any of those items on a weekly bases. I will make note on my phone when something runs out to purchase when needed. We are very minimal in general so we don’t have much food that is wasted or unused. Here are some of our favorite foods to keep on hand!
