Start a Pantry to Save Time and Money Pt.2

con't Start a Pantry to Save Time and Money Pt. 2

Money will only be wasted if you purchase items no one eats and extra time will be taken with cleaning out all of the unused items. Each household is in a different stage of life and their items will reflect those differences.

For example, those families with young children might want to start a pantry with cold cereal, diapers, wipes, pretzels, crackers, and canned ravioli in their storage area. Homemakers who are dedicated to baking and creating meals from scratch might have plenty of flour, sugar, baking powder, chocolate chips, dried buttermilk, and oatmeal on their shelves.

Couples who are retired typically don’t eat large meals three times a day and they tend to eat out a bit more often, so their items might be limited to snack foods and a few items on hand in the event that guests arrive unexpectedly.

Organization is key to keeping a well-stocked pantry. Mount a small dry erase board or notepad with a writing utensil right in the storage area so you can add items to the list as they are used.

Your shopping list will always be in process. Any space can be used to store your items and if you have a larger family, it will probably be spread over several different locations. Use boxes, baskets, shelves, plastic tubs with lids, or anything you like to store your items in an organized manner

Start and Organize your Pantry and see how much time and money you will save.

But generous people plan to do what is generous, and they stand firm in their generosity.
Isaiah 32:8
